I learned yesterday that I have a massive gallstone, too! I still love these comics!
Why don’t we have a gallbladder plush available in different sizes?
I used to think Heart was my favorite character. How naive! Gallbladder is the nicest, cutest organ in the body. <3
Someone pointed me at this very comic the night before my cholecystectomy. Never mind that I had already written a humorous farewell note to my little GB, but the whole gallbladder series had me rolling on the floor.
Currently in hospital from pancreatitis caused by gallstones. Reading through your comics to pass the time after friends linked me this one. They had the stones one and the removal of gallbladder pinned up on the wall in the ultrasound area of the hospital, it was awesome.
I know how u feel since 1999 had issues ? with Mr pancreas. In the end 2 surgeries lost 1/3 pancreas, gallbladder and spleen.
Pancreatitis almost killed me for this exact reason!
My mom is currently in the hospital w gallstones for the first time and said she finally understands what happen to her after seeing this comic strip. Thanks
I imagine Gall Bladder sounds like Kevin from The Office.
No, no I don’t thanks – and now I don’t have one – a gallbladder that is, and I am reminded of that – every time – I eat something deliciously fatty and get sick in the bathroom for 20 minutes 5 times in one day.
For those who don’t know – no gallbladder means no way to process fats properly – so you get sick if you eat too much of something with fats – in a very unpleasant way and it goes right through you…terrible cramps and it feels like you can’t possibly have anything left in your body by the end of the day. Moral of the story?
No gallbladder forces you to go on a low fat diet – and when you eat fat – you pay. Dearly. Pay.
That is not normal. You need to see a doctor about those symptoms. Most people who have their gallbladder out have absolutely no problems digesting fats and only experience temporary diarrhoea soon after surgery (if at all).
A large per cent of people who have their gallbladder removed suffer from irritable bowel syndrome for the rest of their life
I cannot find any evidence of that in the medical literature, though here is an increased rate of cholecystectomy amongst people with IBS, so it may be the other way around Either way I think a doctor is a good idea dont you?
This is probably irritable bowell syndrome. Some people have this after gallbladder surgery.
Gallbladder speaks Swedish :o) ‘dem’ is the swedish word for ‘them’
