    I have never heard if a man experiences the same effects after the gallbladder is removed. I know there was a lawyer and saxaphone player on here about 2 weeks ago talking about how long it would be before playing the sax would be okay. if you do statr with more diarrhea and pain let us know. Good luck!  lol

    We are interested in a boy of appx 30 for my daughter's marriage. However his GB has been removed nine months ago. I need to know specific information about the risk factor.

      Most of us women that come to this forum have severe diarrhea, pain where the gb was and pain that goes to back and shoulder. I have nbeen told it is probably adhesions, which is scar tissue that grows like a spider web. Certain ways you move, it really is painful. You have to really watch your diet. I am on a powder 3x's aday and immodium tablets for the diarrhea. You have to drin  a lot of water also. Remember, all of us are different!  question

    Hi Haridas, Please keep in mind that 80% of people with a gall bladder removed function much better than they did with gall bladder disease.  Even people with very uncomfortable symptoms post surgery usually improve and lead a normal life.  The one long term caution I can think of is that the key hole surgery is prone to a hernia if the person lifts heavy things.  About 60% of people with keyhole sugery experience a hernia with in two years.  This is fixed with a day surgery, and you need to find a competant surgeon to do it. Good luck to you! a removed gall bladder is the LAST thing I would worry about when considering a prospective mate for my child.

      Well, like I said, "all of us are different". Yes, having the gallbladder out is lot better than having those attacks and possibly things getting worse. One can manage the side affects (if any) with diet, etc.

    I'm 38 female and had mine out 2 weeks ago. I can eat normally, don't have diarrhoea, I have no more pain, I have a little sensitivity around the incision sites which is to be expected. I'm so glad I got my gallbladder out.

      I had mine out in 2004 and all my pain and diarrhea started about 9 months ago. Like I have stated, "we are all different". Hope you stay well!
