A member asked:

I have a lot of gallstones. chronic nausea yellow stool er doc said gallbladder is not infected how soon should i see a surgeon?

Gallbladder problems: The nausea can be related to either a gallbladder infection or the passage of stones from the gallbladder through the main duct (common bile duct), or could be a stone stuck in the main duct. What tests were done? Most likely you need blood work (liver tests, wbc) and imaging (u/s or ct scan) to tell. I would recommend surgical consultation soon.

Check with your doc: Sounds like the sooner the better. There is never anything wrong getting a second or third opinion, or even more.
