Gall bladder attack, dark yellow urine, drinking water reduced the color. What could be this?

I had a gallbladder attack that lasted a long time last night and when I woke up, I used the bathroom and my urine was dark yellow. I thought I was dehydrated and drank some water and then the next time I used the bathroom, the urine was a normal, light yellowish color. A little later, my urine returned to a dark yellowish color. Should I be concerned about this???

Hi and welcome to HCM
You sholdnt be concerned,but you should do ultrasound to see is there stone in your gallbladder. If yes, then cholecystectomy should be performed. YOu obviously had stone stuck in main biliary duct which passed through. tHis caused temporary bilirubin elevation in urine and dark urine. Sometimes it can be dangerous because cholecystitis may occur. I suggest to do ultrasounds and then remove your gallbladder because these attack will repeat. Especially after fat meal and alcohol intake.
WIsh you good health.

General Surgeon Dr. Hari Charan Perigela's  Response
I think it is a simple case of dark coloured urine due to decreased intake of water.
As your urine colour came back to normal after drinking water,it is related to kidney,not gall bladder.
Gall bladder pain will be in the right upper part of the abdomen below the rib cage.
Get an ultrasound abdomen for Gall bladder lesions and urinary bladder pathology.
Nothing to worry.
Drink plenty of liquids.
Wish you good health
