Three years ago, I had surgery to remove my gallbladder. Despite my efforts to cleanse the gallbladder, it remained very diseased, and had to be removed.

I'm not doing too badly, but I do have  occasional bouts of acid reflux  which leads to gastritis, and then irritates a hiatial hernia.   I  have learned quickly that small, simple meals work the best for me.  Losing weight is real difficult, but I've not given up on that issue.

Living without a gallbladder, has  a high potential for many future health problems.  If anyone would have important insights they would like to share, I will be grateful.  My experience using the Type A diet is rather new.  So, I'm sure any input will be enlightening for me.  

Thankyou, pamma

Fortunately, when my gallbladder wasn't working as a teen, the Dr. thought it might be an ulcer, so didn't take my GB out...  Unfortunately for you, I don't have knowledge of living without one to be able to help you.

I will say, however, that by following the recommendations for your type should reduce any negative issues and allow the body to heal whatever can be healed.

I had my gallbladder out in 2007 after trying to save it for a year.  Things have gone okay without it, though I've been consistent with my liver health and have done numerous liver cleanses after my gallbladder removal and take supplements for it.

I'm quite compliant with my food choices.  Obviously our food choices are different, but keep up with your Type A diet and you'll see good results.

My doctor once said, white female over 40 and you have GB issues.. I did for a week, aggrevated by a flight.. to and from vacation sick as a dog, could not breath... then nothing any more..

My experience is not like yours.. but eating BTD will make all the difference that I can agree with all the others who come her to welcome you.  All the best.
