I Might Have Gallstones

I’ve been having pain on my right side in the evenings for a few weeks now, at least. I thought that it was just a side ache or something and didn’t think much of it. But the past few days the pain got so bad that it kept me from sleeping at night. So I went into the urgent care yesterday and the doctor thinks that I’m having gallbladder issues. I’m scheduled for an ultrasound later today. This means that I can’t eat or drink anything until then, which is frustrating. Yesterday I ate a low fat, vegan diet all day and feel much better today and actually got a good night’s sleep last night. I’m still tired though from not sleeping well the two nights before.

There’s a chance I might have to have surgery. If that happens I can’t commit to writing in my blog every day afterward. I’ll try to write as much as I can though. I’m just hoping that if this is gallbladder problems, that if the doctor gets it under control I’ll feel better. I’ve been having stomach issues for some time.

I’m holding off on exercise until after the ultrasound today and until after I get the results of it. I want to know what’s going on with me before I do any twists or anything in yoga. But I will get back to it once I’m feeling better.

I’m not sure what caused the gallbladder problems. My diet is not that high in fat. If that is what this is then I will find out more from doctors about what happened.

Thanks for reading! Feel free to comment below.
