Re: Not really. Just trying to avoid pancreatitis.

I apologize for the late reply about the possibility of an Acute Pancreatitis episode after gallbladder removal, I don't always check my inbox nor do I come to this forum everyday. If my memory serves me correctly you have already had one episode of Acute Pancreatitis? If that is in fact correct, you will ALWAYS be at risk for another episode especially if your pancreas suffered damage and it is very difficult to believe that a pancreas doesn't receive some damage (even if not detected on CT) during an Acute Pancreatitis episode.

If you have gallstones, removal of the gallbladder would lessen the risk of another acute pancreatitis attack due to gallstone obstruction and of course would eliminate the risk of acute cholecystitis (infection of the gallbladder) which can progress to gangrene or perforation of the gallbladder, neither of which is a good thing.

If you need more information concerning Pancreatitis you can find it at: Living with Pancreatitis
