Got an ache or pain? Have a question about a prescription or over-the-counter drug? Looking for some FREE medical advice?
My daughter is 15 last November she had surgery to get her gallbladder removed, at the hospital they told her she was the youngest one ever to get it removed. Before she ever had problems with her gallbladder she was dieting, could loosing weight to quickly cause gallstones?
We are also not aware of anyone that young needing the gallbbladder removed. We assume as implied in your question that the reason was gallstones; and yes, weight loss through dieting is implicated in gall stone formation, but equally gall stones also form in those who never diet and those who are not overweight (although the incidence and prevalence are less).
