I have two small gall bladder polyps (4-5 mm), will it create any problem in pregnancy ?

I am 32 yr old male & have been detected with two small Gb polyps, 4-5 mm in size, during a routine health check. I have no other problem or symptom as per my complete health check report. A doctor has advised me to get my gall bladder removed, but I am not convinced. Pls suggest what should I do.

Hi Shailender,

Welcome to HCM.

I presume the GB polyps were detected during routine ultrasound examination. I suggest you consult a gastroenterologist and most probably it will have to be doubly confirmed and if it is proved beyond doubt that you have polyp in the Gall Bladder, then yes it is advisable to have your GB removed.

I have been diagnosed with gallstones and need to have my gallbladder removed. Until this happens I need to go back to work, which involves working with heavy patients as my field is Physiotherapy. Would I be able to carry on or do I need to have light duties?

Many thanks

Hi
I am going thru IVF- had 2 embryos implanted on 5/25. The very next day had severe--severe-- pain in left shoulder--it lasted 2 days and went away. Just had first hcg test and level is low 19.7. I have been reading today on the web that shoulder pain could indicate an ectopic pregnancy. Could the shoulder pain be a symptom even though it was 2 weeks ago? I am also nauseous but otherwise feel fine. No bleeding or cramping at all. Should I be worried? Thank you.

I am suffering from bloating for past 3-4 months. It usually occurs after a couple of hours from having meals or at times even due to empty stomach. There is aching between ribs and navel portion. My physician suggested a course of Fasygen (2 times a day * 3-5 days) and a daily dose of Pan-D for couple of months. My family physician s diagnosis included possibilities of GERD/ giardiasis , mental/emotional stress, amoebiasis and gall stones. Accordingly I had a Ultra Sound of my abdomen done, but its results were normal. I am also taking Gasex to avoid bloating for more than a month. After the course of Fasygen, I get a relief for a few days (3-4 days). But the symptoms reappear. And it is usually accompanied by involuntary gaseous discharge.
