My mother just had hers out a few weeks ago, she had been putting it off for a few months. After a horrible attack and becoming jaundice she finally relented and had it out. The surgery went great, she was home that afternoon in very little pain. Four days after surgery she started throwing up and was running a low grade temp, my dad called me to come help him as she was refusing to go to the ER, I live about 20 min away. While I was on my way he called the surgeon to talk to her and he convinced her to go to the ER, by the time I got there she could hardly stand, was having severe back pain and was about the color of mustard! ER took her straight back to a room, ran some tests and found out she had pancreatitis. She had waited too long to have her gallbladder removed and some stones went into her pancreas. She has lost 40 pounds, she was in the hospital for 4 days.
My mom thought the longer she waited the better she would be, not true.
I am sorry you are dealing with this while you are pregnant. I was an OB nurse for 15 years, if it gets too uncomfortable, whether it be pain or diarrhea talk to your OB provider and your PCP(GI Dr or Surgeon) you do not have to be miserable.
