Travel Advice:

Try and stick to the healthy diet you follow at home to control your symptoms as much as possible. If eating fatty foods triggers pain then look for low fat options while away.

If you use painkillers to ease the pain of attacks then be sure to take a plentiful supply and keep them with you if eating out.

Inform your travel insurance provider even if your gallstones are not causing any symptoms so you are covered if you require medical treatment.

If you decide to go on holiday with gall bladder problems, make sure you are adequately covered with your travel insurance.

Symptoms can range from discomfort to severe pain - which usually occurs after eating. Not all gallbladder disease causes symptoms and treatment is not always necessary. Mild cases can usually be treated by following a low-fat diet and taking pain killers to manage any discomfort.

Gall Bladder disease mostly affects women but can occur in men. The likelihood of being affected increases if you are overweight, have high cholesterol and have a family history of gallbladder disease. The disease is uncommon in young people and the risk of being affected increases with age.

By far the most common way to treat problematic gallstones is to remove the gallbladder. This is usually done via keyhole surgery and requires only a short stay in hospital. Following the removal of the gallbladder bile is no longer stored and released after eating, but instead it is constantly dripped into the digestive system. Patients usually suffer no complications and find that they no longer have any pain.
