I had my gallbladder removed
18 months ago, following
stones (despite being full of them), BUT following
an attack of acute pancreatitis
. I wasn't really given much say in the matter, as the pancreatitis
was a nasty attack and I was strongly advised to get my gallbladder
out asap after it. It was a straightforward procedure, with no after effects. I can't really say I felt better, because apart from the pancreatitis
incident, I never had any problems beforehand!
