Gallbladder Update
0

3 posts in this topic

I just wanted to give a quick update on my gallbladder issue...a few weeks ago I did the HIDA scan & it was functioning at 15%. I just saw my dr at Mayo...we did a full abdomen ultra sound...no stones in gallbladder. He does not want to remove it...says the low-functioning is a result of the gallbladder not getting the signal from the small intestine to work. The small intestine is where my damage is, so I guess that makes sense. He has seen this all turn around after enough healing takes place...I am about 8 months since diagnosis.

So, I am on digestive enzymes & hoping things resolve. I am amazed how many things Celiac Disease can effect in our bodies!

Hope this gives insight to anyone else dealing with gallbladder issues...

It sure gives me some insight into why so many have had their gallbladder removed - often seemingly unnecessarily when it didn't solve anything - before finding out about gluten.

Interesting Mayo Dr comment on it being the signaling causing low function % instead of a functional incapability.

Sounds like you have a great Dr., especially compared to the ones we usually hear about.
