I had my gallbladder out 20+ years ago assured by doctors that I would be able to live a full productive life. New research is showing that the removal of the gallbladder can cause problems with the blood pressure long term. For the last 6-7 years I have suffered from very high blood pressure, deadly high, extreme, and can not tolerate medication. Medication makes me very sick and has landed me in the hospital several times. Do not believe everything doctors tell you!!! My pressure is so high I am not disabled, and trust me not living a productive life. Would love to hear back from anyone else with this issue.
