My Story – Without Gallbladder

This is my story without gallbladder

I am new here so I am going to tell everyone a bit about myself and my stomach problems.  I am now 31 years old.  When I was younger I was allergic to lots of foods (dairy etc.) but nothing actually bothered me too much.  Beginning in my last year in law school (approx. age 27)  I began having weird stomach problems.  Mostly consisting of bloating and immediate rushing to the bathroom after meals.  I saw 10+ gastro doctors and had every test under the sun – nothing was found.  I tried every herbal and prescription med out there.  In the end they diagnosed me with IBS and Gerd – because they had no idea what it was.

Fast forward, in Nov. 2009 I went to another gastro doctor.  They ran one more test – scan of my gallbladder and found it was functioning at 14%.  The next day they took it out.  And if I thought my stomach problems were bad before it was taken out – I had no idea what was in store for me!

For the first 3 months after the surgery (lapro) I had immediate dumping syndrome to everything I ate – from bread to crackers – everything! I tried everything under the sun again for bile reflux – nothing really worked.


Message from a reader: Kefir and probiotics

Kefir and Probiotics – No Gallbladder

Few days ago, I received a message from a person named Syl with a subject line of: new found relief from no gallbladder symptoms. He/She mentioned Keifer, which I think he/she refers to the ready-to-drink Kefir as he/she also mentioned probiotics.
