[AlternativeAnswers] I'd really like to keep my gall bladder!

 

Hello Everyone,
My name is Dawn, I've been on here for awhile now & have learned a great deal from you all, but this is my first time posting. I've always been interested in natural medicine, but haven't had any real issues until now.

I have always had problems with my digestion. The first thing I cut from my diet about 20 years ago was artificial ingredients. Over the years I continued to cut out anything I found that upset my digestion. So when I started having more digestive issues I just thought it was time I went totally vegetarian. That was going really well until I became concerned with the lack of protein in my diet. 2 days after adding eggs & peanut butter to my diet I ended up in the hospital.

My ultra sound didn't show anything, but the ct scan showed a thickening of the gall bladder wall. Nothing showed up on the MRI except divertasomething which was "inactive".(I forget the name!I do know what it is though).

The real worry (I think)is with my liver, The liver count(?) was really high when I went in, but lowered by the time I left, but it tested positive for hepatitis, not a contagious type.
All the blood tests results weren't in on my last doctor's visit, & I have more blood tests Monday, so there could still be other issues.

They say my gall bladder is inflamed & needs to be removed & I need a liver biopsy. I'm kinda ok with the biopsy part, but I hope I can avoid the removal part. They want to do it at the same time. I am hoping someone could suggest alternatives for me to look into?
Thank you.
Dawn
