(Sorry you have to be here though.)
You're right, it was Keriamon who struggled with gallbladder issues. Hopefully she'll be back soon.
In my personal opinion, I would have the surgery. Yes, you are likely to have similar symptoms afterwards - BUT, you might get rid of some. I know that Keri usually only has D. And even that she controls with Welchol and calcium. You can, however, develop acid reflux... But then I think the D would stop. Either way, it might be better to have only 1 or 2 symptoms as opposed to several.
I hope others come along to share their experience. I can't really say much with conviction as I still have a healthy gallbladder.
