March 6, 2007 4:02pm CST
after consulting abdominal pain last september on my doctor, I undergo to ultrasound and accidentally found of that i have few small gallbladder polpys. I was shocked at that time and imagine on the age 28 i have that findings. But the doctor told me to be calm and dont worry just take enough excercise, avoid fatty foods, and balance diet and he gonna observe it after a year. I dont take a second option on a specialist instead i research it on the net that polyps are rarely cancerous (malignant). Gallbladder Polpys usually cause no signs or sypmptoms and need no treatment. As finding measurement it was only 10 mm on size but the recommended size for surgical removal was 20 mm. right now, im aware of fatty foods and took regular excersie.

I have never heard of having polyps in our gallbladder. I had stones and quite a few of them so I had mine out. I had it done on April fools day and I was only 29 at the time. If you get really worried about them just have it out. It doesn't hurt that much. I just felt like I had done 100 situps in a few seconds. It was more just cramps then reall pain afterwards. I wish I would have made them let me keep it though. Good luck with yours.
