Hello I’m 21 and I’ve been fighting through my conditions and symptoms for several years and would love to tell my story and hear yours as well.

      I would like to know the cons of having my gallbladder removed I have a lot of gallstones and my gallbladder is full of sludge which is disgusting and it causes severe pain

        @alicus you may still get pains after gb removal, and most ppl complain of diarrhea after meals

        • alicus

          @Nikki75225 Yes I read about the diarrhea problem what I read was that it could last a few months but I'll tell you the pain that I suffered when I had an attack was excruciating absolutely excruciating I cried and cried and I don't want to go through that again I go see a surgeon next week to get his opinion thank you for your answer

      I was misdiagnosed with celiac disease for 6 years, but when I was 16 they did further testing & my gall bladder only works at 35%

        @Erma I understand completely they misdiagnosed and didn’t diagnose me for the longest and I was and still am struggling then they said my gallbladder isn’t functioning probably soooo… next is upper GI and gastric emptying study

    • Nikki75225

      Did you do ct scan or ultrasound

      • alicus

        777d

        @Nikki75225 ultrasound

      • alicus

        777d

          776d

          @alicus I’ve gotten an ultrasound and they said everything looked “normal”

      • Mac2

        785d

        @Nikki75225 yes I’ve had both and others as well, my next two are a gastric emptying study which sucks! And an upper GI , then possibly removal or not

        @Nikki75225 My doctor said I need to eat a low-fat diet since I've been on keto for 2 years it has been a high fat diet but it's very difficult to change the way I'm eating so drastically

      Whatever you do, don’t remove your gallbladder unless you have a life threatening issue!

      • alicus

        777d

        @Julia_Magyar why?

      • Mac2

        796d

        @Julia_Magyar I’m not sure if I’ll have to or not, do you know the pros and cons?
