  • I had mine removed 2 years ago. I can't tell that much difference.

  • Yes, the pain went away, but I do have other issues that are worse now.

  • I had mine removed 11 years ago. The pain went away but honestly, my quality of life is better now that I had a hysterectomy this past March.

  • I had mine removed about 6 years ago, I still have a side effect of not having it called Bile Salt Diarrhea. Not everyone gets this but those that do know what i'm talking about. You get horrible stomach cramps and diarrhea with bile in it, it's not just greasy food that can trigger it,but anything, a drink of water, a piece of toast, some have it after....or DURING....every meal. I used to have this daily for years. ow I only get it about twice a month but my Aunt who had hers removed about 20 years ago still has this everyday!
