I feel your husbands pain! I had my gallbladder removed 5 years ago after they found alot of little stones during my 3rd pregnancy. My life has changed forever since that surgery. I cant digest wheat, gluten, high fat foods (even more than when I had the gallbladder),spicy foods, acidic foods, etc. Eating is no longer enjoyable for me as there is so little that I can eat. I now have the bile reflux because of that surgery.
Also, chronic gastritis.
I would encourage your husband to look into natural ways to deal with the gall bladder stones, I guess there are ways to dissolve them without getting the gallbladder out. Also, watch the high fat foods. I have friends that manage their gallbladder issues without getting them removed and some are doing well.
There are so many people that I have found out about that have these same problems when they get their gall bladders out, and I surely don't want to see your husband go through any of that if possible.
I would do anything to have my gall bladder in again!
There are people that do fine without them, however, it is a little bit like playing Russian Roulette (sp?)!!
Good luck to him whichever way he goes!
