Jill Duggar Had Emergency Gallbladder Surgery After ‘Horrible Pain’

Jill Dillard (formerly Jill Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame), is recuperating after emergency surgery following the birth of her third child.

The reality-star-turned-mommy took to Instagram over the weekend to tell fans about her recent gallbladder removal.

“Well, I almost made it to my six-week postpartum well-check without incident but ended up with a horrible bout of pain earlier this week that culminated yesterday in having to have gallbladder surgery😩,” the 31-year-old said via Instagram.

Jill Duggar gave birth to her third son in July

She gave birth to her third child earlier this year. “I wasn’t excited about having to start my healing time clock over again, but I am so thankful for good medical care & so many other little blessings along the way … help from family and friends + the relief now and thought of hopefully never having to deal with another bad gallbladder attack again!!”

Jill shares two other children — all sons — with husband Derick Dillard. On her social media, she elaborated on her recovery and the pain she felt leading up to the gallbladder removal.

“PSA!! In case my story helps anyone else, listen up!! Disclaimer: NOT medical advice. If you’re like me and have been dealing with what you think are just ‘gut issues’ episodes occasionally but are frustrated that you can’t pinpoint exactly what is causing them, even if it hasn’t been accompanied with a ton of ‘pain yet maybe think again,” Jill added in her Saturday post. “Or … as my surgeon said, ‘the storm might be brewing’ but just hasn’t hit/you haven’t had a big gallbladder attack yet!”

As she mentioned, Jill recently gave birth in July to her third son, Frederick. She and husband Derick also have son Israel, 7, and Samuel, 4; the two lost a baby, River, late last year to miscarriage.

“We recently found out we were expecting our third baby,” they wrote in a November 2021 statement, choosing the moniker River Bliss for late child. “We were thrilled! However, a few days later we started miscarrying. … One meaning for River is ‘tranquil,’ and here in Arkansas, rivers are often a serene, beautiful escape in nature. Our baby doesn’t get to live here with us on earth but is forever with the source of the river of life in the presence of the Lord!”
