    gallbladder polyps
    mollgirl posted:
    Hi I am not sure if I am posting in the right place or not but here goes. I have previously posted about abd. pain and problems. I just got the results back from an abd.ultrasound done in Oct. It said I had sludge and a 5 mm gallbladder polyp on the posterior aspect. It says I should have a scan done in 6 mos to make sure it did not grow bigger. What does all this mean? We've had a nightmare of a time with Drs. and test results. I still have abd. pain and pain under my right breast. Any thoughts would help. Thanks.

    Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss the results and get more information about whether this is the cause of your current pain, diet to relieve gall bladder pain, and other treatment options to enable you to go about your daily life without undue pain.
