I just got back from my appointment with my surgeon. My gall bladder will need to be removed surgically but not until after the baby is born unless there is an emergency. Probably within a couple of months after birth. During maternity leave would be best since I'll already be off from work. For now I just need to eat a low fat diet (your gallbladder processes fat) and hope not to have any more attacks. Looking back, now that I know what I have, I think I've had 5 attacks since Christmas and only one has sent me to the hospital, so hopefully I will be okay. The good news is that since my gallbladder is getting removed, I won't have this issue for the next pregnancy.
