Im scared. Im anxious. I need more information. I had an ultrasound on my gallbladder yesterday morning and I got the results tonight. I have many stones and they want to surgically remove my gallbladder. They want to remove a piece of my body. That is scary. I am going to meet with the surgeon tomorrow afternoon to discuss my options, if I have any. I have also talked to my nutritionist and she mentioned that it is possible to dissolve stones by consuming beet juice and green apples. I am consuming green apples, I dont like beets. I am going to try and juice some beets tomorrow.
Also my doctor said not to eat anything with 1 gram of fat or more???? What is this? Everything has fat and your body and brain needs fat to function properly. WTH? I am confused and of course I dont want to commit to this but I also do not want to have another attack. She said that eating fat causing the gallbladder to contract which could cause I stone to travel out of the gallbladder and cause an attack.
Like I said, I scared and confused. This also may be a result of my tremendous weight loss this year. (Yep I found it here-Rapid weight loss. As the body metabolizes fat during prolonged fasting and rapid weight loss—such as “crash diets”—the liver secretes extra cholesterol into bile, which can cause gallstones. In addition, the gallbladder does not empty properly.)That to me is unfair. I lost the weight so I would not have health problems and this could be caused by it?
Salem trip on Saturday, not crazy about trying to eat there with this new less than a gram plan, but hopefully I will get more information on that tomorrow. My right side is tender :(
I am grateful to the commenters that suggested I get checked, I would hate to leave this and have it get worse. Thank you.
In other news my art history mid term was today and I think I did ok, we shall see!
