I have been diagnosed with gallstones and removal of the gall bladder was recommended. I will very probably do this early next year but in the meantime I wanted to know if any additional symptoms that may occur beyond the usual ones I have read (abdominal pain, shoulder pain, jaundice). Specifically, I have at times over the last couple of days felt dizzy, flushing of my face (but not fever), and weakness in my legs. I am recovering from a bad cold so that may be the problem but I wanted to ask here in case anyone can comment on these symptoms.
As I said, I will very probably schedule surgery in the second week of january of 2012 but I still want to know about these symptoms I am currently having.

Had My gall bladder removed yrs ago.
Very painful when I had the attacks.
Would vomit too, along with severe pain where ribs meet……

If gallstones block your common bile duct it can cause pancreatitis which can be lethal if not treated. I wouldn’t wait. I got pancreatitis from this and was in extreme pain. Pancreatitis can destroy your pancreas which is needed to live.
