    Oh hunny i can totally sympathise,
    i ended up in hosp for a week with gallstones after losing alot of weight on LT.
    Mine just went away believe it or not?? very strange!!
    They were going to operate but the stones "settled" so they didn't need to and it hasn't hurt since.
    The pain is unbearable, i really feel for you doll!
    Hope you feel better soon

    Aw hugs :hug99: What rotten timing :(

    So painful too :(

    If they do recommend an op, do go for it. I made the mistake of putting my priorities in the wrong order and had a number of attacks before I gave in.

    Fine now I've had the op, but before that it was getting to the point where anything could set an attack off.

    Take care :hug99:

    Really sorry to hear that I hope you feel better soon. :cry:As I said before my friend suffered with this after she lost a lot of weight with WW, so I know how much pain your in. She had keyhole surgery and is much better now.

    I started on 17/09/08 and have only just been able to use this site. I always looked at interest with your results as we tended to lose about the same. I lost 3 stone in 10 weeks.

    Hope you feel better soon.XX

    I am just out of hospital after being very ill with pancreatitis due to a trapped gall stone. I got the gall stones after losing a lot of weight with lighter life. Am now waiting for inflammation and oedema of pancreas to settle before can have gall bladder removed:-( A very miserable time.

    Seems to be 'common' with VLCD :(

    Sorry to hear about the gallstones dena :sigh:

    I can totally sympathise with you on the pain!! I suffered with them years ago and long before I ever attempted any VLCD. The pain is indescribable and I also needed morphine to be able to stand up straight:eek: then lithotripsy to break the stone and pass it through when I went for a wee.

    Hope you get the right treatment soon..xx

    Thanks everyone, they seem to have settled down again now hopefully they will stay quiet till I get my appointment. I think that it is anythin spicy that sets me off so avoiding that at all costs.
    Its weird as I also expected to put a few pound on over christmas but alas I have lost a pound not that im complaining but I really wanted to enjoy xmas dinner!!!!
