stoned - September 19

I was just diagnosed with having gallstones that would have to be surgically removed. I am currently 7 months pregnant and I wanted to know if it was possible to have a c-section and have the stones removed at the same time??? I dont have an appointment with my ob until next week and I just wanted some advice

I am not sure. I was diagnosed with gall stones earlier on in this pregnancy-when I was 25 weeks it got so bad they had to take it out. They did open surgery becuase I was so far along. Are you planning on waiting until the end of your pregnancy to have your gall bladder out? I am sure they won't do a c-section early becuase of that, I think mainly they want to wait until after you have the baby in order to be on the safe side. Let me know what your doctor says.

I doubt it, that's too much trauma for your body in one day. I was also diagnosed with Gallbladder Disease (gallstones) when I was 6 months pregnant with my first child. 2 months after she was born (by c-section), I had my gallbladder removed laproscopically. If you have any questions, i'll be happy to answer them if I can. Did your doctor give you any pain meds to help you through the gallbladder "attacks"? :o)
