Hi Blueberry. Maybe as you have a little 'advance' warning that this could happen it might be worth just contacting whoever is responsible for it (ESA) and letting them know the situation then at least they would be prepared too and it would prevent you from having something else to worry about which you could well do without right now. Take care and lotsa :hugs: Cherry x

flippin heck :yikes: , you think you have it all sussed. :nono: .and somthing else creeps up and gets you, hopfully you feel a little better with the diet...persevere with it, it could help with the discomfort :dunno: , once you've had the op you can have [chocolate] . i went to the docs like you say with one thing then he started to rhyme off what else it could be, and gallstones was one of them, but will wait and see how things pan out, tell them at your esa appeal what has happened recently, :fingerscrossed: hope alls goes well and your not in too much pain, take care and let us know how you get on..............sending my best wishes mandy

I had my gall bladder out about 7 yrs ago and it was after I was diagnosed with FM
When I went to the hospital to arrange my op I made sure I told them about the FM and I was glad
I did as they put me in a side ward and was given a very cumfy matress that was like an air bed so
it didnt trigger my pains after the surgery

:fingerscrossed: that you get in soon and get it taken out an its a worry off you, I have been fine since so
dont worry too much and it was a quick an easy op, only in 24 hours

Hi, anyone have their gall bladder removed before they found out they had fibro? was wondering if the gall stone problem could be conected to fibro. Of course it could be something else, i also have celiacs descease. I found out that lots of people have gall stones as an early symptom of celiacs descease. I was 21 years old when i have gall stones, which caused pancreatitas. Not fun. And it hasnt got any better from there. Im 35 years old now and have suffered for going back 6 years with symptoms of fibro and cfs, of course i didnt know thats what i had. docs didnt listen until this august. At last i know what is wrong with me... Anyone have simular probs? :)

Read this post with great interest. I had my gall bladder removed 7 years ago and it was after that the symptoms of fibro started. Wonder if it is related, I know they say that the trauma of surgery can set it off? :grouphug:

I had my gallbladder removed in August 2009. It was a month after removal that things went wrong. The pain I had felt the same as before I had it removed. Two years on its still there under my right ribs and around top of my back. Had loads of tests done but nothing showed up. Dr said I had fibromyalgia about a year after removal but I think I've had fibro symptoms for many years with different symptoms, just after the gallbladder the pain got much worse.

I have gallstones at the moment, and suffering A LOT of pain with them.

What department do you need to see to remove them, as i'm on the 20 week waiting list for gastroenterology, referred because of severe GERD not getting better on any of the 3 meds we've tried.

I'm also waiting til April 2012 (yes! THAT long to wait!) for my appointment with urology as a follow up to my bladder camera and kidney ultrasound and abdomen xray that I had done in October, they did those exams because of the constant red blood cell trace in my urine, that's when they found the gallstones, on the xray.

Doctor is annoyed that they found the gallstones, then told me my appointment with Urology is not until April 2012!

"That is not my Cow!"....."Where is my Cow?!"

I am me, plain and simple in more than one sense of the words! ;)

A lot of us have suffered with weight gain since being affected by FM Blueberry :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: All you can really do is give the new diet your best shot. You could also try and fine some chair-based exercises which are gentle while still hopefully adding a little bit extra to help with the weight loss.
