The interaction with doctors stopped several years ago, so there generally isn't a way to get in contact with them directly. Have you discussed matters with your primary doctor?

Have you doctors done a through GI investigation using colonoscopy and endoscopy? Given that you were not experiencing pain or issues with your defective gallbladder, your doctors may have missed the real problem, with the distraction of your additionally diseased gallbladder.

rbc = 5.5
wbc = 4700
lymphocyte = 36
neutrophil =56
platelates = 154000
all the blood test below are also normal -

Just stay diligent like you are, hopefully you will begin to feel normal. You're on top of things for sure, you can't do anything more that that. Take care.
