How do I know if I have gallstones?

You may be suffering from gallstones if you are experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Pain or tenderness in the upper right portion of your abdomen
  • Pain after eating
  • Pain in your right shoulder
  • Fever or chills
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the whites of the eyes or skin)

If you think you may have gallstones, talk to your Glacial Ridge Health System doctor or make an appointment at Glenwood Medical Center.

How can Glacial Ridge Health System help?

Glacial Ridge Health System’s highly skilled surgeons can help you find relief by surgically removing your gallbladder and gallstones. Gallbladder surgery at Glacial Ridge Center for Surgical Care is performed laparoscopically (using small incisions) in one of our state-of-the-art operating rooms. Surgery generally lasts two hours or less and patients typically leave the hospital the same day.

How long is recovery?

Recovery time is fast, with patients getting back to their normal activities usually within two weeks of the procedure.
