Like "For me my gallbladder problems are hereditary, my Grandmother, Aunt, 2 Uncials, my Father, and it likes the dark headed granddaughters, three of us have had ours removed. We thought that was what my problem was at age14; it was officially diagnosed at 28, and removed at 46. And mine was removed because of a very large stone; Luwitch was detected by a sonogram. And there can still be problems even after having the gallbladder removed as well as new ones. I still do. The stone was the reason for the removal. Good Luck"
