I had my gallbladder removed in 2007 and like many of you I was still experiencing severe pain. I tried different diets, medications and more tests. I was desperate and starting researching natural supplements and discovered an article about Taurine. I discussed this with my PCP, visited a local herbal store, asked more questions and decided to give it a try. Two tablets on a empty stomach 1 hour before eating, twice a day and it worked for me, no more pain!! Taurine 1000mg 100 capsules price $11 at the herbal store, half price if you order online, but if you consider the shipping cost and the wait, $11 bucks is not bad. Although, I still have the occassional running to the bathroom after a meal, that I can handle. Good Luck and I hope it works for you as well.
