Re: Contracted gallbladder with thickened walls
I had my GB out in January following years of pain. When they did the ultrasound they said mine was contracted but they didn't know why until I had it out. Turns out it was packed full of large stones and had thickened sides. I'd guess that yours is full of stones too and that makes it kind of shrivel up on itself.
The good news is after the surgery I felt better IMMEDIATELY and could eat normally. The scars are tiny and recovery was easy. Feel better.
