gall bladder help
Posted Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 1:50 AM
I had an ultrasound done about 6 months ago due to pain on and off and a constant achiness on my right side that spreads around to my back. I was told I had gallstones. The symptons went away and the Dr felt it was best just to leave it alone, but these past few days have been horrible! I checked online for a gall bladder diet and have been eating raw shredded organic beets with lemon juice and a little olive oil. I just grab a tablespoon or two every few hours. I also saw a recipe where you steam celery, parsley, zucchini and green beans till tender, then blend them into a puree or thin it a bit and have it as a soup. Kind of bland but I love all the veggies so I've been eating it. I am having a bit of relief tonight after having some of the pureed vegetables and laying on my right side for a half hour.
Does anyone have any other home (healthy) remedies for the pain? I do make some ginger tea and suck on the chunks of ginger, but that gets pretty spicy. LOL The ginger does seem to calm things down. I just want to get rid of the achines all together. It feels like a fractured rib I had years ago in a car accident, but this doesnt' seem to go away completely.
Thanks for any help!
