Gallbladder attacks

33 years old
female
gallbladder attacks
Started when I was pregnant with my 7 week old son. I had three attacks while pregnant and was told it might stop after pregnancy but if not they would have to remove my gallbladder.
Now I am having them every few days, it is intense pain. The first one start about 3 to 4 weeks ago.
I have had orangish yellow stools ever since then.
I am exclusively breastfeeding so anything I take will go to the baby as well.
I need help urgently I can't have the surgery to remove my gallbladder yet as my son breastfeeds every two hours or so.
I have tried altering my diet but I seem to have them at random now no matter what I eat. Even after just fresh fruit and vegetables.
I am currently not even eating any dairy along with a list of other things due to my son being colicky and not knowing if it is something I am eating.
I usually manage the pain with apple juice and apple cider vinegar. However, tonight it didn't work as usual.
I have an ultrasound next Tuesday to look for gallstones.
I would be willing to due the flush but it requires a strict time line and my son isn't very predictable at night. I don't know if he's going to go to sleep at 7:30 or midnight. It takes me 10 minutes to several hours to get him to sleep.

What is your chief complaint? Intense pain from gallbladder attacks
When did this complaint start? When I was about 6 months pregnant with my son who is now 7 weeks old.
What was going on at this time? ( examples: emotional upsets, disappointments, illness of others, accidents, injuries, travel, new foods or
exercises) Having a hard time with pregnancy, gestational diabetes, feeling bored and depressed at times, body hurting.
What is your opinion of the cause of the complaint?
I'm not sure. I don't have an opinion of what caused it but for some reason I have a feeling that I have a blocked bile duct and that is why the attacks come so often and pain medicine doesn't work.
List other main complaints after this and give the same information.
Subtle pains in legs especially when trying to sleep. Started around the same time.
HISTORY OF MEDICATIONS

Please list what medications you have taken for your complaints, Allopathic or homeopathic.
I tried Dioscorea Villosa as it was the only homeopathic medicine I could find with Gallstones in the description.
What medications are you on now? Motrin, Norco
If you picked your own medications, what were the symptoms for the choice you made?
If you have or are under the care of an MD or other homeopath, please list the tests you have had if any, and
what advice you have been given.
I am not under the care of anyone for this condition at this time. Although I do have an ultrasound scheduled in a week to look for gallstones.

color of the tongue?

Disclaimer:
The remedies below are not mentioned for any self medication but only as a supportive statement based upon several beneficial cases of gallstone colic. Only a prescribing physician may consider it alongwith a single high starter of tub.


I may refer here to few cases of gallstone colic that came our way in last many years. Nearly all benefited by a simple alternation in 30th potency... all finally went for the removal of gall bladder in 8 to 10 years. We think we delayed the OT visit by many years but have not yet been able to fully clear the case to a level where long term prospects of operation are diminished.

In one case that was not improving at all was misdiagnosed to be of gallstone colic but later a very small hernia was found.

The remedies are as under;

1- Chelidonium-30 morning
2- Cholesterinum-30 noon
3- Chelidonium-30 afternoon
4- Cholesterinum-30 night.

Many Regards to everyone at this learned forum.

I have edited the top to include the information about my tongue. I am sorry I forgot it.

I want to also add that after every attack, once the pain completely goes away I have grateful and good feeling thoughts. It's almost like a new 'lease' on life feeling. I usually feel that way until I go to sleep.

simone717 7 years ago
I have started taking the MP.
I'm ordering the nat sulph but which one are you referring to?
Natrum Sulphuricum or Natrum Sulphurosum?
 
Tiffylove 7 years ago
 
simone717 7 years ago
I did as you said and took the nat sulph and mag phos for several days. I have not had an attack since the day before I posted my original post. I also changed my diet more. But I do feel slight pains further right and sometimes dull aches in the area of the attacks but definitely nothing close to the pain before. I had an ultrasound done Tuesday which showed a few small gallstones. I haven't taken anything for several days as I have been dealing with my colicy baby and forgot to. Should I continue?
 
Tiffylove 7 years ago
Please take dioscorea 30 tid.with chionanthus Q ten drops thrice daily.

Dr.vamshikrishna 7 years ago
have mag phos 4 times a day instead of three.

is there a reduction of size in the stones?


nat sulph be reduced to alternative days now

also let me know abt your other symptoms like pain in the calf,mental state etc.

anuj srivastava 7 years ago
The pain in my calves is more like an ache and feels like its super tight. stretching it feels good but like it needs more than that. My husband squeezes it for me and it hurts but feels really good at the same time. I have had that issue for several years.

Mentally I am a worrying and get bored easy. I lack motivation and haven't found my passion (work or hobby) in life yet. I am currently struggling emotionally but I believe its because of a lack of sleep and I am completely stressed out trying to find the solutions for my 8 week olds gas pains. Its heartbreaking to watch his pain and not be able to do anything.

Another symptom I think is worth mentioning is my acne. It went away while I was pregnant but it is back again on my cheeks and chin.
 
Tiffylove 7 years ago
stop nat sulph.

have argentum nitricum 200 one dose .5 pills ones and give a feed back next day.

mag phos be reduced to three times a day.

any reduction in size of the stones?

what is the problem with your child let me know and also let me know if you had a strong urge for sweets during your pregenancy and you were eating a lots of sweets during that time.
 
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
I'm not sure if the gallstones have reduced in size I have only had one ultrasound and that was recently.

While pregnant I did crave sweets once in a while but I didn't have them as I had gestational diabetes. I don't eat much sweets now because I am refraining from dairy, chocolate, and eggs as I don't know what is affecting my son. I am breastfeeding him. He has really bad gas pains. It keeps him from sleeping even when he clearly wants to. He grunts and kicks all the time. Lately even while nursing he'll pull off kicking and pulling his legs up and scream then cry. I'll rock him to sleep just for him to 5 minutes later suddenly and quickly pull his legs up and open his eyes and fuss.
 
Tiffylove 7 years ago
i have discussed the case of your son with simone will come back to you.
 
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
I have been taking the medicines as you have said except I don't get in all the doses of mag phos it is really hard to do while taking care of my son.

I have less discomfort. Once in awhile I still feel a little discomfort but still no attack since I posted this originally.

Can I take the argentum nitricum with the mag phos? If I can only get in a few day which one is more important?
 
Tiffylove 7 years ago
size of the stones?
mag phos is priorty
argentum is also importANT
 
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
I have no way of knowing the size of the stones now.

When I had the ultrasound done all they told me was you have a few small stones.

I will do my best to be diligent about taking the meds. I really want to resolve this issue.
