So I've been getting odd random bouts of stomach pain since my DD was born in October and I found out today that I have a big gallstone and the way to get rid of it is to remove my gallbladder. I'm freaking out a bit because I don't want to have surgery and from what I've read there can be a lot of side effects like weight gain, digestive issues, restricted diet etc. My GP said I could ignore it until it causes more regular issues but he wouldn't recommend doing that as I want more kids and I wouldn't want this to cause any issues during pregnancy.
Anyone had their gallbladder removed? Please share how your recovery was and if you've had any long term effects following the surgery. I'm pretty worried about how I'd look after my DD while recovering if it's a longish recovery time as well as the other things I mentioned above. Thanks
