And I mentioned all the crazy food sensitivities. I told her it all started after I got my gall bladder out, and asked if there was any connection.
She laughed. “Oh yes, there’s a well-known connection,” she said. “You no longer have the same emulsifiers that help digest food.”
Despite my many, many questions about this in the past few years, this is the first time a doctor has shared this information. Uninformed — or doesn’t give a shit?
So that’s good news. My immune system isn’t going crazy; I’m not digesting properly. That’s a problem I can probably work with.
