Subject: Re: [gallstones] pain after gallbladder removed (6months ago)
I continued to have the same kind of pain/attacks immediately following GB surgery and did the liver cleanse two weeks after. My pain was centrally located, just below my sternum. Most likely, stones were stuck in my common bile duct. It took two Liver Cleanses before my symptoms completely subsided. You didn't state whether or not you did the liver cleanse prior to having the attacks or whether you did them to try and alleviate your attacks. It's likely that your liver is most likely full of stones, and as it secretes bile, your liver is trying to pass them. They may be stuck in your common bile duct. I had my first GB attack 9 years ago when I was pregnant (I didn't know that it was a GB attack at the time).
There's something about being pregnant that correlates with GB attacks and pain (I'm not sure why.) I'd encourage you to do the liver cleanse if possible. Agnes has posted advice about doing it while pregnant, and you might find it in the archives.
