Has anyone had an ultrasound done confirming either stones or inflammation of the gallbladder and then continued eating fats on a low carb / keto diet and had a follow up ultrasound to show whether anything changed in their gallbladder? I've been mostly low carb for a couple of years and a couple of weeks ago I went more keto (even though I have done it on and off over the past couple of years with no problem) but this time I indulged in roasted duck (skin and fat) and noticed a dull ache under my right ribs a few hours later. A bit of googling and I realise it's probably gallbladder related. A doctor's appointment today with a bit of palping confirmed probably inflammation of the gallbladder so I'm heading for an ultrasound soon. Even though my "attacks" haven't been severe, the doctor has already said most people just have their gallbladders removed. I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck sticking to moderate fat on a low carb / keto diet and managed to get through gallbladder inflammation, or is it dangerous if the gallbladder is already inflamed to leave it in there? After the ultrasound I should at least know if there are any stones that are likely to block the ducts. But right now it's tender in there so something is already up and I wonder if it's something smaller just working its way through. In the mean time I have started drinking a bit of blitzed up whole lemon (including skins) and whole apple mixed with water because I read that limonene and something found in apples can help dissolve gallstones. (Not sure if what I read was just anecdotal or whether there was evidence from a study.) I did read that the olive oil / lemon juice gallbladder flush, which sometimes produces green stones, are not actually gallstones but complexes from the olive oil, and I think a flush is possibly more risky than just eating the fat I would be eating on a keto diet. Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences! Good or bad - I need the reality here.
