For Those With Gall Bladder Issues

Does anyone have experience with the finding of "fundal adenomyomatosis" . "Mild wall thickening and punctate calcification of the gallbladder fundus which may represent fundal adenomyomatosis. The biliary tree is nondilated.

 

Thanks,

 

Colleen

Not sure I have the answer but don't mess with gallbladder issues my husband just got out of the Hosp. from gallbladder surgery they were supposed to do the Divinci surgery thru the belly button (1hole)  his gall bladder was un recognizable , so then they tried the laproscopic way, nope still couldn't recognize it. So they went in the good old fashioned way. What was supposed to be 1 1/2 hr. turned into a 5 hr. deal and a wake up in ICU. he was in ICU for 3 days and in the hosp. for 5. Finally home and just got his 30 staples out on Monday. All that thickening your talking about he had. His intestines were attached to his gallbladder also. He's lucky with all the infection he had he made it thru this. A friend of ours was telling us her grandfather passed away from the same thing. Nothing to mess with!

Hi Wendy, thanks for your reply.  

 

The previous scan I had of that region showed the gall bladder being completely normal.  time span was 7 months.  My Oncologist doesn't think it has anything to do with my cancer, so that's good.  Unfortunatlely,  Oncologists don't worry about anything unless it's connected to cancer.  I think I have an appointment coming up with my GP and I'll show the scan info to him.  I want to be knowledgeable on the subject so he can't gloss over anything on me.

Sorry, Colleen, I checked my hospital records and other than ejection rate did not find anything else. The surgeon told me verbally that it was "hot" meaning infected. Other family members were told that their gallbladders were damaged, but I do not recall them mentioning wall thickness. In any case, no one in my family ever had their gallbladders removed based on standard tests other than the HIDA showing ejection rates or infection. It is a curse and I think it is related to celiac disease, but that is just my opinion since most will not get tested for celiac disease!!!

One Aunt just went gluten-free per the advice of her chiropractor and found relief. Her daughter had an endo only without blood test or biopsy, but went gluten-free because her mom had found relief. Both are doing great except for accidental glutenings. Both had the GBs removed too.

Curse = 6 out of seven siblings, oldest five grandchildren had surgery to date.

Thanks for your reply.  As far as I know, no one in Family has had any gall bladder issues.  But then again, no one has cancer...lol.  I'm the Special one in the Family I guess.   I understand the gall bladder works with the Immune System?  Is that correct?

It is a reservoir for bile, but it can be attacked by your immune system. I suppose it could have immune properties as well but that is beyond my scope of knowledge.

Here is a good article:
