Gallbladder Polyps

Recommended Posts

This is my official diagnosis and it's recommended that I have gallbladder removed.

what am I dealing with?


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Thanks -

Just wanted to know if anyone has personal experience with this type of condition and what happened to them. Was it ever found to be cancerous?

I had my gallbladder removed due to a polyp. In retrospect, I think my symptoms were actually caused by gluten sensitivity. The cholecystectomy pathology report showed a chronically inflammed gallbladder. I have read more than one doctor's opinion that gallbladder disease can be secondary to celiac.

I would consult a surgeon (or even better, two surgeons) for opinions on the necessity of this surgery. Ever since gallbladders can be removed laparoscopically, they are removed at an alarmingly higher rate. Just my opinion.

Having said all that, it's an easy surgery and you can live a healthy life without a gallbadder if it's truly a necessary surgery.

I see the surgeon on Tues and I have become very symptomatic - gas, bloating, nausea, diarrhea (?), discomfort in upper abdomen, discomfort when I twist from side to side. The sonogram stated that the polyp(s) were small. But they are sure making it known they are here.

well surgeon who has done this surgery has seen me and says yes gallbladder must be removed and his diagnosis is that I have small stones stuck to inside lining of gallbladder. So now I am very interested in knowing if my symptoms are what one would get with gallstones...
