I just got out of the hospital, diagonosed with gallstones and pancreatitis. Doc said I will need to have gallbladder removed. I have been reserching some on the internet and I have a few concerns.
Me- 39 year old Female, 214 pounds (ugh), otherwise healthy and active, Vegatarian diet- No meats, No fried foods!!
First off, I am pretty sure I got the gallstones from doing too many fasting cleanses! The first few attacks I had was during a cleanse! And I lost 60 pounds in about 6 months with little effort- NOT from fasting. I understand rapid weight loss can cause gallstones too.
I also rapidly gained back about 40 pounds in the last year, and can't seem to loose a single pound no matter what I do!!! I asked the doctor about this and he said it could be due to the gallstones/pancreatitis, and my body not being able to digest food properly. And that I will probably loose weight after having gallbladder removed. IS this true??
I am concerned about having the surgery because I see that allot of people say the GAIN weight afterwards!! But I also wonder if this is due to them being able to eat more foods??
