View Full Version : Polyp on Gall Bladder
06-05-2008, 05:24 PM
I had a sonogram because I had what seemed to be a gallstone attack/s. I have had 4 of these attacks in the past 4 years. they were pretty unforgettable. felt like I was passing stones.
the sonogram test came back today and said I have a tiny polyp on my gall bladder and thickening of the gall bladder wall. and, no gallstones!
the doctor told me not to be too concerned about it. said everything else looked very healthy. hmm.
has anyone had a polyp on their gall bladder? or thickening of the gall bladder wall? comments? please :o

any suggestions for getting rid of this polyp? fasting? juicing? GS-ing?... as I have already had the organic, raw-vegan thing going for years and years. :D what else can I do? is a polyp part of detox? or am I doing something wrong? help please, I'm kind of concerned. thanks.

Polyp is a growth nothing you can do (eat/drink..) will get rid of it. Like growing another finger or toe, only surgery can remove it. Living a healthy lifestyle will slow the growth...
I recently found out that I have one possibly more :(
Looking to see if there's anyone else out there who has/had them in large intestine..

I have known a few people who have had polyps in their intestines and colon and always have had them removed (colon are ones are said to be the most concerning due to statics showing they are a higher risk for turning to cancer. ) Personally if I had one there I would be totally fine with it being surgically removed.
I also know someone with nasal polyps and outside of headaches she is fine. No surgery recommended. Had them for years and nothing has resulted for them.
Most polyps in general are not dangerous.
As for the gallstones I had gallstones before and I know your pain- that is why I am terrified to do a liver cleanse. For me I kept being told I did not have them - mine were missed because when they looked at the sonagram the stones had moved from the gallbladder.
I hope that info eases your mind.

I had one that was partially lodged in my bile duct causing new stones to happily hang out in my gallbladder. Eventually the gallbladder too many stones and ruptured so it was taken out. I was only 13 when that happend, my sonagram was done a maybe a year or so before that. They showed me the largest stone that was in my gallbladder and it was the size of a concord grape but shaped like a football - there was no way that one was passing anywhere on it's own.
My parents felt so bad to have listened to to the pedatricians. According to them I was just making up stories to get attention. It is also not very common for a child to have stones :mad: I was having attacks several times a week the last few months before my surgery...it was horrible

ouch, I'm sorry, that's terrible. I'm glad you got through all that. That's some painful stuff.
