Hi there ....

You can avoid bloating , pain and acute gall bladder pain by avoiding high fatty meal , chocolates , cola drinks , cheese and fried food .

You can use PPI ( Proton pump inhibitors ) like Cap Omperazole 20 mg once at bed time .

And on possible and next available timings you should proceed with surgery .

Good luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .

Do you think is immature for me to wait 1 year for this surgery? I know of it for at least 5 years always asymptomatic are my risks higher now of complications because I have bloating?
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 2 years ago.

One year wait is not good for you as in some cases it can complicate and involves Pancreas which is not good .

For few weeks you can wait , but not for year .
