Its been 3 years with large stones and finally scheduled surgery in October..Dr Shen thinks my pain issues are from scar tissue moreso than the gallstones.. who knows.. I recently had some dilated bile ducts on MRI and ultrasound and I started freaking out thinking I now have PSC.. ,my new GI at Cleveland Clinic did not think so, so I saw a hepatologist at Cleveland Clinic that specializes in PSC and he said after seeing all my labs and scans he does not feel I have PSC either. But he cannot explain the dilated bile ducts either.. here is why I am scared of the gallbladder coming out.
I have dealt with minor leakage since my redo 5-6 years ago with Dr Remzi. I am worried that the leakage may get worse after gallbladder comes out, and I will be in a diaper or lose my pouch. I think that the leakage may be caused somewhat by my diet as its not great and I pretty much eat and drink what I want for the most part. I have asked my GI and the surgeon about helping me with my diet and both have pretty much blown me off when I asked for help or referals. Can someone here maybe help me with what I should be eating and not eating? My surgery is Oct 12th.
