I had my gallbladder out about 20 years ago. Had a hysterectomy last May and have a slow thyroid but not enough to warrant meds according to the doc.
This lifestyle has been great for me. I can't eat broccoli, cauliflower or onions since losing my gallbladder without getting bad gas, and digestive problems. Otherwise, I eat Primal and I have no problems. In fact, my digestion and my hormones have never been better.
Good luck to your mom.
