My Baby Doesnt Have a Gallbladder ?


I am mother of 10 months old son. After having two ultrasounds performed on his liver, kidneys, abdomen and scrotum, it was discovered that he had been born without a . So far the doctors are not worried and they told me that I shouldn’t be either. He is on a special formula for now. Have anyone f you ever heard of a baby without a gallbladder? If so, what is the outcome?


Answers:


I too was born without gallbladder. I remember that my mom told me that she took me to the hospital because of a gallbladder attack during the surgery; they discovered there was nothing to remove. When they told to my mom that her baby doesn’t have gallbladder, she fainted. That particular surgeon almost killed me because he did not see that the pressures of my were so severe, luckily I went to a gastroenterologist that was able to diagnose me correctly. He performed an ercp and put a in my ducts to open them up. 2 months later had to have another to remove the stent. I have had no problems with my stomach after this.
