    USA!
    At year 14 after CFIDS onset, my Gallbladder started to give me problems. Tests showed NO stones but also a non-functioning Gall Bladder. I had it removed via lap in November of 2008 and the symptoms were gone by the time I got in the car and was driven home. Why did my Gal Bladder go "bad" without any stones, gravel or other issues? They don't know. I'm just glad it was an easy situation: symptoms, diagnosis, removal - FIXED! If only CFIDS could be this easy.

    Muffin, that is why I ran the poll, because a lot of us had gallbladder issues, mine was 3 month after the start of my illness, without stones, and it was necrotic. And the surgeon said it was not EBV related??? ???

    other digestive issues

    Thanks muffin for sharing this. Did you have other digestive issues besides your gallbladder? I have other GI problems so can't always tell what is or is not gallbladder, though sometimes it's very clear. And how are things now? I've heard so many people talk about problems after removal. I hope you are one of the success stories and that you continue to be bad-gallbladder symptom free.

    Isn't it great when something gets FIXED like this? It's almost like a miracle! :Retro smile: Yes, if only CFIDS could be this easy.

    I'm interested. I keep losing your post that has the web address.

    One of the best sites I know is gallbladderattack.com. I had some good success with their The Beet Recipe.

    The site also has directions for a gallbladder and liver flush. Fresh eyes, what do you think of this one?

    I'm having gallbladder issues but can't get the doctor to run a HIDA scan. I had a normal ultrasound.

    does anyone know if systemic enzymes can cause gallbladder pain?

    I'm trying to add them to my treatment but I had some pain about 45 minutes after taking them. I'm going to try again today as I really feel I'm needing enzymes.

    Hi Gracenote. Looks like that purple link is basically the same flush, with some extra supplements added. I think the epsom salts and the oil are the only two really, truly essential ingredients - the idea is the epsom salts clear all the food out of your system and dilate the ducts, and the oil causes your gall bladder to purge out all its bile, taking stones with it. Here's the one I use:
