I have spherocytocis, I had surgery to remove my spleen last week, however I just had another gallbladder attack?

Hello! This is not really a general question.. I am 20 years old, female. For the past few months i have been experiencing extreme pain in my abdomen. The pain shoots down my back and is accompanied with nausea and chills/fevers. After a sonar the doctors said i have sludge in my gallbladder. The underlying problem was spherocytocis – a deformation of the red blood cell. As a result of the sphero, my spleen became enlarged and broke down red blood cells, causing the liver to produce too much bilirubin. I had surgery to remove my spleen last week; however, I just had another gallbladder attack after only a week. I eat a very healthy diet with only natural fats. I have been drinking Ursotan to help the body with dissolving cholesterol. Is it possible that the Ursotan may be making me feel worse ? Is it possible for the gallbladder attacks to go away? How long will it take after my splenectomy for the gallbladder to recover again? How can i be sure that it is even my gallbladder and not my stomach or something else ? I’m really hopeless by now

Ursotan havd drug interaction with some birth control pills
If that is the case see your doctor immediatly
Also urinary track infection is suspected if you have fever
I highly recommend another untrasound on bladder for other cyst
Good Luck

hi
seems more of urinary tract infection. urine culture,ultrasound and cystoscopy should be done.
start on proper antibiotics.
thanks

HI
I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE PRETTY MUCH IN PAIN RIGHT NOW. UROSTAN CAN CAUSE THIS BUT ITS NOT THE ONLY REASON. BEST THING I WOULD SUGGEST IS TO GET A CT ABDOMEN WITH CONTRAST. THIS WILL GIVE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR QUESTIONS

hello there
spherocytosis is still causing the problems. get a peripheral blood smear and a blood count done. unresolved spherocytosis often precipitates recurrent gall bladder attacks
