I dropped 25 poinds in Feb and March, and got no relief from gallbladder surgery. In fact it made me worse. You could find that like me your problems weren’t gallbladder related to begin with. When I told the doc I had pain in my back, he did all the pancreas tests. I could tell he was itching to do more procedures, but I was just mad because he seemed to be barking up the wrong tree all along. I left his care, went to a gastrointerologists, who found I had gastritis and low bowel motility and hemorroids. Later, the cause was determined to be metal poisoning (12 different environmental metals making me fatiqued, depressed, bloated, pained in the joints and large muscle groups, unable to keep food down, nauseous, etc.) [weight loss]
