Hello and hope you are doing well.

As there is biliary dismobility, removing the gall bladder may help, as it may help to bypass the gall bladder. The bile will find its way directly to the intestines.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

I am on a very lowfat diet, nice to have lost a few pounds in the process. I am going to have my GB removed in a week. But I am thinking of postponing until after Christmas... I have very mild pain only once in a while. I am just weary- I have heard Biliary Dyskenesia is not always resolved wit the removal of my GB. I will keep ypu updated- Thank you for your response :)
