I read a very interesting article that says having gallstones is linked to heart disease.
I had my gallbladder removed in February, 2004, it was non-functioning 18%, contained gallstones and was considered diseased.  And of course, I do have Heart Disease.
 
How about you??

That's a very interesting study. I had my gall bladder removed (one rather large stone in it blocking the "out" line for lack of a better term) in 2002. I'd had 2 MIs previously. I'm not obese (most of my life I was pretty scrawny) although I've put on weight since quitting smoking about 12 years ago.

I can sorta imagine plaque accreting inside the arteries and stuff building up inside other body organs. Seems to make sense, in a strange sort of way. I just hope that kidney stones aren't part of the deal. I haven't had them...and I don't want 'em, either.

That's what worries me, Ray.  My Dad had lots of problems with kidney stones, and then ended up with the renal artery having to be stented, then restented and then the artery shut down.  So he was on kidney dialysis for about 6 yrs.  So far I haven't shown any problems with that just the gallbladder and it's gone. yeah

I had mine out in 2000. They said it didn't have stones but had been bad for a long time. Man was I ever sick. Took them 3 months to figure out that it wasn't my acid reflux. I had non stop heartburn for 3 months. I couldn't even lay down it was so bad. When I would eat I'd have terrible pain. Lots of nausea. The doc said he hadn't seen one that bad looking in his career. the ultra sounds they did didn't show anything it was when they did a rare test to check for function that they found it was pushing gall into my stomach. Yuck! Glad to be rid of that. You know another thing that seems to run along with the heart disease is the acid reflux too. I've seen many of the people here have it. It would be interesting to see how many of us have that. Barb T
