I just read somewhere that some people may grow something back similar to a gall bladder that performs its function, years after surgery to remove it. This seems quite odd, is it truly possible?
I had mine removed 2 years ago after getting pancreatitis from a stone getting into the pancreatic duct. We just didn't know near what we know about health now, and although we tried for years to keep from having it removed (my first symptoms appeared when I was about 11, I had the gall bladder removed when I was 17), we had much pressure from my dad's side of my family (every female, except for my younger sister- 9, have either had their gall bladders removed or are dead from it) and we finally got it taken out. I had diarrhea for months off and on, then after a while, thankfully, everything seemed to regulated and I seem to have great digestion now (very little gas, 2-3 bowel movements per day). My two cousins are not so fortunate, they both still have chronic diarrhea, we all are close in age, and had our gall bladders removed within about 3 months of eachother, I was first LOL, the copycats. One of my cousins, who was very overweight, has lost 100 lbs from the diarrhea. I haven't seen him recently, but he must be much smaller! My other cousin and myself are not overweight like that. I know he is not getting the nutrition his body needs with diarrhea like that. :(
I just thought that it seemed odd that you could grow one back, and wondered if that was true? That would be neat if I could/have.
