In any quick weight loss situation there is a possibility of complications related to gallstones or formations of stones like kidney stones but in the gallbladder. If the problem persists there is generally one solution to gall stones. The removal of the gallbladder itself. Yesterday after 5 days of fatigue and the beginning of stomach pains I went to the hospital. I was highly concerned about gallstones.
The feeling that I experienced was similar to kidney stones but much less intense.
So I went to the emergency department at Emory and sat for a lovely 4 hours after they took blood to find out that my blood work looked normal and that I likely had no gallstones or kidney stones. the Doctor then ordered a CT (cat) scan and another 2 hours passed before I found out that I had a number of small kidney stones and the gallbladder was fine. I AM SO relieved.
Some drugs, some rest, and lots of water (and green tea -yum) and I should be OK in a day or so.
I am very proud of myself in all of this. I stayed on the diet and on schedule. I have not been able to exercise which has bothered me but I will make an extra effort of that in the coming days.
So there was not truly a set back just a concerned.
