I had suffered greatly from gallstone formation. And I honestly think or at least in part had to do with birth control pills and hormonal. Once I changed my lifestyle and diet I felt a whole lot better. Of course I also treated the gallbladder. But people can really prevent things from happening by decreasing the harmful things they put in their body. At least that is my view.

I went on a 500 calorie diet recently with no fat in my diet, 6 weeks later,and 30lbs lighter, I was having discomfort on my right side under my rib cage, lo and hold, the ultra sound showed gallstones! Surgery is in a few days, I look good, but I am not sure if it was worth it, would I do it again? No way!

It started out with kidney stones that they found because I had lots of bladder problems. Now they want to look at gallbladder!
