Excessive Use Of Antibiotics Can Cause Gallstones
Probably not: If you have gallstones then what will trigger an attack is contraction of the gallbladder and getting a stone blocking the duct that drains the gallbladder. Antibiotics wouldn't do this. Usually the cause is eating, particularly fatty foods. If you have gallstones you shoud consider having surgery to remove it before it becomes an emergency. ...Read more
I went to the ER yesterday with severe pain when they ean some tests said I had a gallstone was giving pain med and antibiotics still in pain i?
See a GI doctor: If the bile ducts remain blocked for a prolonged period of time, severe damage to the liver or pancreas or infection can occur. Because gallstone symptoms may be similar to those of a heart attack, appendicitis, ulcers, an accurate diagnosis is important. See a gastroenterologist ASAP. ...Read more
Out of hosp yesterday after 4daysfor gallstone pain. Was on IV antibiotics/morphine. Had 2 b catheterized but now itchy down below with white discharge?
Yeast or UTI: Your recent bladder catheter places you at risk for a urinary tract infection and your recent use if antibiotics places you at risk for a vaginal fungal infection. Of the two, I suspect the latter. Notify your doctor, who may suggest some over the counter anti-fungal cream/suppository or a prescription pill (fluconazole). ...Read more

Depends on severity: Pancreatitis related to ERCP can range from minimal symptoms to severe pancreatitis which can be life threatening. Depending on the severity of pancreatitis, this can resolve over a period of days to weeks/month. Also it is important to make sure that all stones were cleared from the bile duct. No alcohol ; low fat diet. You should see the gastroenterologist that did the ERCP for more guidance. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with gallstones. Will the antibiotic called cipro (ciprofloxacin) help get rid of my gallstones? Why was I prescribed cipro (ciprofloxacin), zofran, and percocet?
Yellow, brown poop & sometimes diarreah, with yellow mucus when wiping everytime. Been going on for 6 months now. Been on antibiotics and now off, still yellow. I've been tested for my pancreas & liver enzymes they are normal & no gallstones.
Gastroenterologist: I assume a gastroenterologist has evaluated you. Have you been tested for gluten intolerance or sensitivity? If so get retested while you're actually eating gluten foods in your diet. Maybe a trial of pancreatic enzyme supplements or a course of cholestyramine would be worthwhile. Severe irritable bowel syndrome is a possibility and you could try a fodmap diet. ...Read more

Spasm: biliary colic causes flatulence and delaying surgery will ultimately lead to emergency surgery or death: I suggest removing the gallbladder: new laparoscopic surgery will have you home in 1 day; however, if you wait, you could be looking at a hospital stay of 1-2 weeks if your gb ruptures ...Read more
Symptoms vary: Gallstones may not produce any symptoms. When they do, it usually is intermitent, widely spaced episodes. Symptoms can be pain or even indigestion or 'heartburn' like sensations. (ingested foods worsen gallbladder symptoms, but, usually calm ulcer symptoms). As troubles worsen, gallbladder pain can become continuous and sharper/ more intense. ...Read more
Depends: If one has multiple small gallstones these can exit the gallbladder and cause obstruction of the common bile duct or pancreatic duct which will result in pain, jaundice, or pancreatitis. If one has several large stones that do not obstruct the gallbladder one may remain symptom-free. ...Read more
Anything you want: If you have no symptoms then carry on. Just know that there may be a time when a stone gets stuck where the gallbladder empties and it may then cause severe pain and possible infection. In that setting you should see a doctor and see if the gallbladder needs removing. There is no diet that will make the stones go away. ...Read more
Yes: Unless the risk of the operation is too high, the best time to remove your gallbladder is between attacks. Don't wait until you get sick. A 1" stone will not go away on its own. ...Read more
Unlikely: Cholesterol gall stones form when something upsets the balance among the three components of bile: bile salts, a phospholipid called lisolethicin and cholesterol. Rapid weight gain or loss and pregnancy are common causes in susceptible individuals. I'm not aware of tramadol causing this. ...Read more
Doubtful: Gallstones are caused by an imbalance of bile salts, lecithin and cholesterol. What causes this is probably multifactorial, and heavily dependent on genetics, either inherited or acquired. While it is possible an antibiotic could contribute, it is very unlikely. Especially with short term use. ...Read more

Platlets at 131 then 5 days later down to 106, po&inj steriods used for spine issue, also have gallstones currently not sure if related cause or not?
No: Neither steroids or gallstones affect platelets. Your platelet count of 131 is just below the limit of normal. 106 is low but not worrisome. The chances are that there is clumping of platelets causing the miscount, though if a repeat test shows a low count again, additional tests and a physical exam are appropriate. ...Read more
