Gall bladders store bile to release when digesting fat or to compensate for acid stomach. When doctors remove the gall bladder, it means that it is more difficult to digest fat and acid stomach will just stay acidic; talk about lost sleep due to acid reflux. This begs the question – why don’t doctors inform the patient the importance of gall bladders & the side effects of removing them?
I wonder if doctors or researchers ever look into what percentage of porphyria sufferers have had their gall bladder removed.
And, how often a gall bladder is removed because the doctor is guessing at what is causing the pain endured by porphyria sufferers.
And, why don’t doctors just take the stones out of gall bladders instead of removing the gall bladder?
