This is the first place I thought to come. I need help on figuring out what to do. I was rushed to the ER 2 nights ago, in what ended up being a pretty severe gall bladder attack. Apparently I have gall stones, and it's infected. I am now taking amoxicillin for the infection. The DR wanted to take the gall bladder that day, but I asked if we could wait long enough for me to pump a decent supply for my 6 week old son. I was told to make an appointment with the surgeon and with my GP. I am wondering if I <i>have</i> to have my gall bladder taken out. Is it possible to lower my fat intake, eat only healthy fats (I was planning on going back to veganism soon anyway) and cure the infection, and have a healthy gall bladder again? Or am I being silly and over thinking, and should just have the stupid thing taken out? Anyone experience this?
