No gall bladder question

Posted , 6 users are following.

My friend and I have no gall bladder. We are both experiencing some major menopause symptoms and we both are 52. Does anyone know if this could be a contributer to having more symptoms than others experiencing this craziness? Any answers are appreciated.

    I started experiencing severe symptoms at 51. Had all kinds of tests and the only thing they could find was my gall bladder looked diseased so it was removed. But it didn't make any difference.

      Hello, mines has been removed years ago as well. I didn't know if not having one made things worse for ladies in meno. I'm so glad to have you ladies to talk to. Thank you for responding. X

    Hi Crystal...I had my gallbladder removed 3 years ago. My feeling is that the meno shift in hormones caused my digestive issues that led to the stones and subsequent removal. So that problem is gone but I still have other digestive issues like gassy gut,constipation/loose stool, sour stomach,acid reflux. I still its the meno that's doing all this.
