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 :)
