Well maybe. Did you know losing weight can cause or increase your chances of getting gall stones? Well, neither did I.
Last year (before becoming pregnant) I had triumphantly gotten down to 245 lbs. My maximum weight at one time was 320-330 lbs, so I was proud of myself. During my pregnancy I gained over 60 lbs (35 lbs more than the recommended 25 lbs).
One and a half month after delivering my beautiful baby girl I’ve lost 20 lbs which I consider to be a good thing. So what’s my problem? My problem is the excruciating pain that sent me to the Emergency Room last Thursday. Come to find out I have gall stones and need to have my gall bladder removed.
When I visited my surgeon, I wanted answers. Her responses shocked me. I was surprised to find out that weight loss can cause or attribute to the formation of gallstones! Bet they don’t tell you that on any weight-loss program. Although you can live without a gall bladder and the surgery is only 20 minutes long, the pre-operation pain is horrible!
Just wanted to give my PSA for the day. Take it easy folks.
