Thank you for your post. It was very interesting especially The part about emotional stress, as that could certainly be the cause of my problem.
My husbands secretary had her gallbladder out recently and she told my husband that her brother had his out too, but he was told that his had hardened. I think this is what has happened to mine. I doubt that anything will correct this. I think that my liver is already doing much of the work that my gallbladder should be.
I remember you saying in a previous post that you have a fear of general anesthetic. I do not like the idea of it either. The closest I have had to an op is the removal of a wisdom tooth.
