I was one of the first to have the laser gallbladder surgery and i had a very good surgeon..I suffered with gallbladder disease for 5 years before they figured out what was wrong with me..I was 23 when I had it removed..Im now42..I have never had any problems..Its as though nothing is wrong..but i wa trying to find out if drinking alcohol in moderateration affects your liver more if you still had your gallbladder..
