Re: Lost my gallbladder somewhere..
You don't have to give it up. In my case, I just have to be careful not to "overdo," which is a low threshold now. I had some pizza last night and two beers from a local lovely watering hole down the road from work, and I had the twinges of a little bit of pain. One more beer and it would have been worse, but I also have this problem if I drink a lot of water or have a ****tail and then eat carbs, like rice or bread. Wine doesn't do that to me.
And of course you didn't expect to have issues with your food. In my case, I didn't have it right away. It developed over time. Interestingly, before I had the surgery or even a hint I was having problems, there were certain foods I couldn't eat (boiled eggs in particular); a lot of things wouldn't stay down.
