I have been dealing with gallbladder issues for over 2 years... now am scheduled to have it removed in August.


I get regular blood work due to other health issues... for several months my liver counts were changing... I was very concerned with it but my doctors weren't... until my bile (bilirubin & liver counts) levels were finally tested & they were climbing higher & higher...


Eventually my sugars were impaired too... now I'm thinking I have diabetes... which I'm high risk of b/c of meds I'm on...


I was feeling really sick... exhausted... more than usual... then I started getting itchy... it got worse & worse until I couldn't stand it anymore...


so eventually I got an ERCP... tube down throat etc... some little stones & sludge... doc cleaned it up & after a few days I started to feel much better... my liver counts are normal again.


I was sternly warned... AGAIN... to have my gallbladder removed before things got even worse... if infection sets in... trouble...


Hopefully my experience will help you... keep us posted...
