So I got a new doctor

Gallstones

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.

    Susie I’ve had similar revelations and thought it was basic information that should have been known and communicated to me earlier.

    I’m sure there are supplements that can help with the loss of emulsifiers. One would think.

    Good luck!

    I can’t believe you didn’t know that, since you’re up on so much else. If I was going to get a body part removed, I’d be doing all sorts of googling on what the doomed organ or whatever does, and what happens when it’s gone. Also you figured it out yourself and still didn’t do a Google to confirm suspicion.
