Okay let me start by offering my empathy for anyone who has ever had a gallbladder attack or the likes of one. They are NOT anyones idea of fun! I have experienced this reoccuring excruciating pain at random intervals for more than 22 years now. I can definitely relate. The only natural remedies I have personally found that minimizes pain are ice cold milk, and raw carrots. Although the milk no longer works for me. My doctors think that I am exaggerating my true pain levels and how often. They claim to be stumped by these attacks.
Im not a professional but if you remove the gallbladder due to gallstones, isnt that just removing the collection source rather than treating the problem? Most articles I have read regarding gallbladder removal end with that procedure.
NOW (2019) I have read somewhere that scientists believe they have found the actual cause of gallstones. IF the cause is now possibly known, perhaps they can prevent a future generation the humiliation of living with these attacks for their entire adult life!
I was 18 when they removed my gallbladder. I am 39 now. I have never had success completely relieving myself of these inhumane attacks! They have stolen my life.
MY family history includes my great grandmother dying from a ruptured gallbladder, my grandmother (her daughter) had her gallbladder removed and died from ruptured small intestines with malignant scar tissue, my mother had her gallbladder removed but thankfully doesnt have reoccuring attacks but also had gastric bypass.
