My GI has suggested a proph choly as a cancer prevention manuveur. I do not have dysplasia or polyps. GB and bile duct cancer are seen with increased frequency in pts with psc. Anyone did this?
I had my gallbladder removed last year but it was more of a cautious measure prior to falling pregnant. I was getting occasional pain and felt like a bump would develop at the bottom of my right rib during these "episodes". The GI thought it was most likely my gallbladder and it would be prudent to remove it electively now as opposed to risking something happening during pregnancy. It ended up that my GB was very inflamed and those episodes have stopped.
For me, recovery took a couple of weeks (no pain meds) and there has been no change to my diet.
