I recently had one because of gallbladder problems. I was told that 35 is a normal #. Mine was 34 which said my gallbladder funcion was normal. I was still having severe pain, all test showed normal gallbladder. I was sent to a surgeon who removed it and I was told it was very infected. The severe pain has stopped but I'm having problems getting regulated after surgery,

If you're having trouble with diarrhea, try a low fat diet. You may not be able to eat anything you want right after gallbladder surgery and it may take quite awhile to get things squared away.

I'm not having diarrhea, it's completely the opposite. If I don't take something I don't use the restroom.

Bosslady, if you are still on the pain pills, stop taking them, as soon as i stopped taking mine, i was back to being regular, though all my stools were yellow and watery for a week or so afterwards.
As far as being normal, it depends on your age. At 19, which i am, "normal" was around 85%, i was pushing 27%. they say that if it is below 35 at any age, to have it taken out. so, anything below that, is bad, but the rest depends on the age.
Anyways, surgery is a breeze if thats something you are worried about. It was my first surgery, i am now showing off the places where they cut me to put in the scopes lol
Good luck!
