Can anyone help please?
I have been advised to have my gallbladder removed following six gallbladder attacks and a positive scan showing stones. My problem is this:
I have had acid reflux for 15 years, been on omeprazole for 10 years and have had the Nissen Fundoplications which eradicated the daytime reflux but I still have nighttime reflux (confirmed by pH test). Both my mother and her mother had oesophageal cancer so obviously I am worried about this. I have read so many articles saying that gallbladder removal can increase bile reflux and that bile reflux along with acid reflux is a bad combination for the oesophagus.
I feel that I am already at high risk of Barrets (or worse!) and to have this operation that may well add to the risk (with the bile reflux) is not a sensible option. I am to see the specialist soon who advocates the operation.
Does anyone have an opinion/advice on this?
