Biliary Dyskinesia

Hi everyone about 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed Biliary Dyskinesia after suffering for over 8 months of not being able to eat and feeling sick all the time. My gallbladder is working at 13% (I do not have stones, its just not functioning) and I just met with a surgeon to have it taken out, he told me I have a 75 to 80% chance of being back to normal after surgery. He even suggested I try a low fat diet for a while, ive been on pretty much a no-fat diet for 6 months with no luck, so he said the Gb has to come out. Has anyone had this and has surgery helped, how were you after? Any comments would help, Ive never had surgery and am really freaked out, seeing as im only 20 and have never had anything major with health go on.

Thanks so much!

This is a simple same-day surgery. Don't worry, its like falling asleep and waking up as if nothing happened. They may want you to stay on a liquid diet for atleast two day.

I personally suggest that you do not get it taken out. I got mine taken out a year ago as of february 26 and have seen things gradually get worse. I am 17 years old and at the time I was 16 and things are worse. I have seen multiple doctors and have seen a bunch of GI doctors. I had a Upper Gi and a colonoscopy and they found i have Gastritis and Acid Reflux. I am currently taking Nexium for these problems but rely on the Nexium to keep me from throwing up. Don't get it out !
