I am a board-certified general surgeon, practicing the full spectrum of surgical disease, including cancer of the breast and colon, all abdominal surgeries, thyroid and parathyroid surgery, as well as upper and lower endoscopy (EGD and Colonoscopy). Surgery for GERD (TIF procedure) is a specialty.

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 33-year-old male asked:

Surgery: The treatment of gallstones is surgical removal of the gallbladder. The timing of surgery is up to you, if you are not experiencing fever, nausea or vomiting and do not have yellow eyes or skin. As a surgeon, I see the consequences of delayed surgery for gallbladder disease such as jaundice, pancreatitis and gangrene of gallbladder which markedly increases your risks. Get it removed now.

Stop medication.: While generally a very safe medicine, any symptoms such as you describe could relate to allergic reaction. Stop the medicine and see your doctor promptly. If progression of symptoms to shortness of breath, go to hospital ER for evaluation.

See a physician: You should have a history and physical exam in a doctor's office. Your diagnosis could be as simple as constipation, or more involved, such as various gastrointestinal ailments including gallbladder disease, enterits, malabsorption, etc. Only after a detailed history is taken can more information be provided.
