“WOW…I FEEL your pain. I am 49 years old….had my gall bladder removed 2 years ago May. Since then, I have not had a “”normal”” bowel movement and sometimes even to the point of urgency. I have gained significant weight around my mid section and lost the “”cute””, as Ive been told, butt that I USE to have. Its EXTREMELY depressing. I started walking 3-4 miles a day and have been doing this for over 4 mths. YES, I have lost weight but my tummy (and spare tire effect) is still there. Don’t know if it was due to the gall bladder removal or just my age catching up to me but it certainly started happening just after the removal. If you find anthing that helps out…please let me know. I just wanted to let you know you aren’t the ONLY one experiencing this.
