Yes, my then-17yr old had hers out (3+ yrs ago) and her surgeon asked when mine was removed LOL .. the answer is that it should have come out 10yrs ago and I'm just waiting for the next gallbladder attack. I have gallstones and have had biliary colic, too. But, lately it's been all quiet (shhhhhh)
My brother 3 months after my issues started (i didnt have stones just chronic inflammation) he had an attack and found out he has stones... he chose not to get his out yet...so far so good for him too.... i just hope he never gets a stone lodged in the duct as he has the little ones. But made him live a much healthier lifestyle.
There used to be a detox that people would do and it would help your body remove or pass the stones naturally. It was like an apple juice detox with olive oil. I never knew if that was just an old wives tale or if there was truth to it.
Can you go get checked at the doctors to see if you have dormant gallstones?
My sister had hers out about 10 yr's ago . I've been having attacks and thought it was bad gas pains . I know now I was wrong ! Mine is between the ribs and the pain go's around and up my back like someone's stabbing me , can't take a breath in . Gotten to point I can hardly eat anymore . And OHHHHHH my the acid reflux is terrible I can't even bend over . Not to mention the nausea .
the ever present nausea puts me over top when pain gets so very bad.. doing blood work today to determine date for removal. I thought it was pancreas as I had that 25 almost yrs ago. tired of being sick and tired lol
