Any Celiacs Out There Have Their Gallbladders Removed (Cholecystectomy)?

28 September 2012 - 04:50 PM

Anyone have gallstones, sludge or a non-functioning gallbladder (biliary dyskinesia) as a result of celiacs? Did you still have abdominal pain after your gallbladder was removed/post-recovery?

Friends! Happy Friday! Please Share Your Story Of The Onset Of Your Symptoms.

Did any stressful event seem to trigger the onset of your sensitivity or full-blown celiac?

Has anyone consequently lost a job, a house, or even a marriage - due to depression or symptoms related to celiac disease?

My story:

I married my high school sweetheart at the young age of 23. Little did I know - in retrospect - my full-blown gluten allergy was triggered at the age of 22 - even though it was somewhat dormant in me since I was a baby. Long story short -- I went into a deep clinical depression - that was unresponsive to medications - and subsequently my wife left two years later.

Fast forward to present day -- I have been let go by various employers because of my lethargy, frequent Doctor visits, and work performance. I had to move out of my condo and and am currently seeking refuge in my car.

Please share your story :) And remember, have an AWESOME weekend :D

Excruciating Pain - I Need Serious Help

26 September 2012 - 11:40 PM

I have been gluten free for about 10 months now. I am still experiencing pain; a deep - hot knife twisting-like pain - in my lower upper left quadrant - a few inches above and to the left of my navel. This is usually subsequent to a primary pain - that comes and goes - in the upper right quadrant localized to where the gallbladder would be. It feels as though it's inflamed and I am sure it's borderline non-functioning - as this has been going on for years...

This condition has literally cost me everything I own; I have been living out of my car for nearly 3 months. I am educated and strict when it comes to my diet- unless CC sneaks in. Can someone please tell me if this is similar to what they experienced? Any experienced celiacs that can help, I would greatly appreciate it!
