View Full Version : Anyone here ever have their gallbladder removed?
Hi, I posted earlier in the intro section. I *just* started eating more raw. I had a pretty serious stomachache today, which I understand is something that could be attributed to detox or adjusting to the diet or it could have been just one of those things.
I had my GB removed many years ago -- so long ago I nearly forgot that it's generally recommended to follow a low-fat diet afterwards. I've been pounding down the walnuts and cashews pretty hard for two-three days and, even though this is probably a temporary thing, I half-wonder if I would ever be able to go raw and enjoy it without a GB.
Thanks for any input!

I had my GB out back in 2003 and did not follow a low fat diet afterwards. Over the last two years I noticed that I would have phantom GB pains. :eek: Of course nothing like when I'd get them prior to surgery, but still, it worried me. Speaking from my own experience I have not had any problems since going raw. I'm only into it a little over one month and have had absolutely no problems in that respect. I went very very heavy on nuts, seeds, and olive oil the first two or so weeks - for me there was no other option. I am a high volume eater with a lot of weight to lose... but now that I've adjusted a bit I'm not pounding down the nuts like before. I still make nut and seed based dishes but not every single day.
Thank you for replying. I'm glad it's working out so well for you. I hated the idea of giving up so quickly. I also found this article about another woman who had hers out and yet worked with Alissa and found great health with raw foods.

I had my golbladder removed when I was 15 (I'm 16). This was obviously pre-raw. Golbladder issues are caused by (usually) gobladder stones which are caused by too much fat in your diet (as was the case with me).
Edit: thats what I get for reading half a post- dohhhhhh
It was already removed many years ago as I said. There were never any stones anyway. It just became inflamed one day, who knows why.
