I had to have my gallbladder removed 10 years ago due to large stones. The thing that got me in to see the surgeon was knife-like stabbling pain under my right ribs, plus an UltraSound that showed the huge stones. I couldn't move the pain was so bad. I had not been diagnosed w/ Lyme or had any antibiotics at this point, so I know that the meds weren't a factor (but suspect the Lyme could have contributed).
After I woke up from surgery, 15 years of near-constant nausea was GONE! I was shocked. Gallstones run in my family, but I had no idea that constant background nausea could be caused by the gallbladder too. I didn't have the vomiting from fatty meals, etc.
The pathology report on my gallbladder said it was inflammed in addition to having the large stones. Good riddance if you ask me.
An allergy/parasite expert told me once that gallbladder problems can be caused by allergies (and I suspect Celiac/Gluten Sensitivity too), which I have a fair number of.
Chronic Lyme Disease, Chronic Bartonella (clinical dx only), Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication/Chemical Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut issues (dysmotility, non-specific inflammation), UCTD ("Secondary Lupus-Like Syndrome"), Osteoporosis, chronic Lymphopenia, etc.; G-Tube; Currently weaning off TPN.
Meds: Pulmicort, IV Doxycycline, Heparin (to flush PICC line), Claritin, Singulair, Domperidone, Colloidal Silver (topically & nasally), probiotics, Liver support herbs, Ailanthus, digestive enzymes, homeopathy.
