Gallbladder?..... what gallbladder?????
I think the Lyme and probably the abx's over the years just went for my gallbladder. I went from weighing around 148 lbs. (my normal "pre-Lyme" weight was 135) to 181 lbs. almost overnight. I had all the gb tests and they removed it and found it to be chronically inflamed. The weight starting dropping off.... I got down to around 148 again... and in the past ten weeks jumped 20 lbs. and then lost 10 lbs. I'm being re-tested with another 2 pelvic sonograms........... who knows what they'll find. I ALWAYS end up getting tested twice. There's always a slight problem with the first test... and I end up with further testing or a repeat and then everything is "normal". This has happened with my heart EKG and brain MRI............. man this Lyme disease is just eating me away from the inside out.
Sorry for kind of hijacking your post.
