I couldnt live a normal life without this medication,i would have to stay in or not eat at all when i did go out.

I suffered for 3 years after gall Bladder removal getting steadily worse. I got to the stage of being afraid to go anywhere and then had a very embarrassing accident.

Why don't they tell you this can ... Show Full Comment
