HG after gallbladder removal?

Postby Jenidibble » Dec 28, 2014 7:34 pm

I started having gallbladder attacks 1-2 times per week during my 3rd trimester with baby #1. After birth I had several more for 1 year, and eventually had it removed this past summer. While in the hospital before having it removed, it was vaguely discussed that a subsequent pregnancy might be better in regards to the HG (nausea in particular). I haven't been able to find any good advice/posts/research that shows any promising information that says HG will be be better after gallbladder removal. Has anyone found something related to this? Thanks in advance!

I haven't been able to find anything in the forums that moms have talked about non-HG pgs after GB removal. Doesn't mean it can't happen or didn't happen. :wink: Many of us suggest preparing for the worst and hope for the best.

I've had three HG pregnancies, each was progressively worse. During my second pregnancy they did an ultrasound on my gallbladder to see if that was the culprit. They found I did have gallstones but that they were not the cause of my HG and suggested I have my gallbladder removed sometime after I had my daughter. I had it removed about two years after she was born. My pregnancy after removal was far worse than the previous two. My guess is that, in my case, HG was not related in any way to the gallbladder.
