Like the title asks. Can someone (like myself) have a bad gallbladder and require surgery even if I have no pain? I have basicaly all the other symptoms and HIDA scan is scheduled early next week. I do get pain in center upper abdomen but only when I press pretty deep. No right pain at all.
I thought that I had an ulcer, and after having that ruled out, I had other tests done. The results fo a hyda scan showed that my gallbladder was functioning at 5%. Not good. Symptoms were nausea, feelings of hunger when I knew that I wasn't hungry. I did not have stones, and eat a low fat diet, so did not have severe pain or discomfort. The nausea was similiar to mornig sickness.
You are asking the right person! I get morning fatigue, after meal fatigue, wake ups at night every 2 hours and thirst if I eat a greasy meal.
I still have my GB but scheduled to have it out 8/18 probably.
I used to like to sleep 10~12 hours, but now since I get the morning fatigue if I sleep more than 8 I feel even more tired.
I am pretty sure the fatigue is caused by vitamin deficiency since we can't absorb the fat soluble vitamins as well. (A D E K, B12)
So far I have tried:
Pineapple - Bromelain
Jarrow Formulas "Bile Acid Factors"
Typer "Lipotropic Complex"
I have had varies blood test, stool test, ultrasound, HIDA, CT Scan, Celiac Panel. Pancreas seems to be normal, it's the first thing I looked at.
So far, Centrum seems to work very well. It has Folic Acid in it and all the vitamins you need. I am still experimenting with the bile salts. All other seemed to work a one time but then the effects faded away.
I am now experimenting with gluten & grease... I must be feeling too good lately! *_^
