Just ran into your thread. Sorry about your loss! About the Gallbladder, you'll feel better! I had it taken out a few years back and every pain and discomfort related to that disappeared. Something nobody mentions because it's gross is the fact that for about a year everything will pass through you real quick when you eat. (some foods are worse than others in this regard). Your body eventually adapts though and you go back to normal. The benefits outweigh all that. Anyways, Good luck!
I am sorry for the loss of your friend, may he rest in peace.
You seem to be on a tough streak.
I've said this to a few other members facing challenges and will say this to you as well, but if you need to blow off some steam, you can PM me.Times are extra rough for a lot of us and having each other's back is part of what a community is for.
