Gallstones travel tips
Taking some extra time to plan your trip could really help you if you are travelling with gallstones. Check out Big Tick’s gallstone travel tips.
- You may want to seek medical advice before you travel to ensure you have any medication you need and enough to last the length of your trip (plus a few extra in case of damage or delays). Your doctor will be able to advise you on when to take your medication if you’re changing time zones.
Know your symptoms
- Complications with gallstones sometimes arise and may be made worse by changes in diet. Seek medical attention immediately if you develop jaundice, an abdominal pain lasting longer than eight hours, a high temperature and chills or abdominal pain so intense that you cannot find a position to relieve it. Within your travel insurance policy, you should have access to a 24 hour emergency medical assistance service so make sure you have the details of this with you at all times.
Know your travel insurance policy
- Once you’ve bought your policy, be sure to keep your travel insurance policy documents with you plus it may be worth printing out a few extra copies for those you’re travelling with.
Be mindful about what you eat
- You may experience a flare up if you change your diet, so be sure to drink lots of bottled water while away. You might also want to avoid sugary foods and soft drinks, try to cut out fatty, greasy foods, and drink alcohol moderately. You may want to ask your doctor what they recommend.
- You can still enjoy delicious local cuisine but you might want to opt for more natural whole foods to minimise risks of a flare up.
- If you’ve been told to avoid particular foods, it’s a good idea to have a list of these things translated into the language of the country you’re visiting so you can be sure to avoid them.
Travelling to your destination
- If you’re worried about feeling any discomfort throughout the flight, make your airline aware that you may need your medication and pain killers on you at all times.
