Linking increased risk of pancreatic cancer to gall bladder removal

Postby accidental_hippy » Sat Jul 23, 2016 1:50 pm

I've read that there may be an increased risk of pancreatic cancer after gall bladder removal. Never mind that the majority of these surgeries are unnecessary. I had mine out in 2007. Knowing that it was not needed makes me mad, but now worrying about an increased risk for a cancer that doesn't have a good prognosis has me wondering what I can do to reduce my risk. Any thoughts beyond what is already recommended for general cancer risk reduction?

There's a belief that having our Wisdom teeth pulled is putting our entire system out of balance, our teeth are part of the whole

I had my gall bladder out in 2003 and have regretted it ever since! I saved Suzun's article too! and it does create a lot of havoc in your digestive area that is for sure shaking head.. I never knew that belief about teeth! By the time I was in my mid 20's I was wearing full set of dentures. Completely toothless.... sadly the kids got that part of my genetics... and the shortness.. deep sigh... hahahahaha
