In 1954/56 (I was six years old) I had been in and out of hospital all my life. A Dr McGladdery in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) operated on me and discovered that I had been born with a detached gall-bladder. I don't know the medical terms but remember that it was HUGE news at the time. My father was away in N Rhodesia and was flown to Gwelo (now Gweru Hospital) under police escort because I wasn't expected to live.They probably wouldn't make such a fuss nowadays ;-). There were a couple of other doctors in the surgical team. Apparently it was the size of a tennis ball when it was removed and it could have exploded as it was full of white powder.)... I would really love it if someone could help me find out more about it. I believe Dr McGladdery reported it to the Lancet magazine at the time. I heard about him again in about 1979 and I contacted him. He sent me a lovely long letter saying that it was the highlight of his career and he was thrilled that I had made contact with him. He has since passed away.

My cousin was born without a gallbladder and was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia. She had an operation when she was born and then had a liver transplant at 15 months old. She is now 14.
There is hope. It will be a difficult journey, but you need to stay strong for your baby.

I am glad I found this post. I am with my elderly mother who just recently had a urinary tract infection and they found out she does not have a gall bladder and asked her when she had it done. She has never had an operation which led me to the conclusion that she didn't have one when she was born. She was also born at 7 months and weighed about the same if not less. She is 82 now and was not expected to survive birth. She has always had trouble digesting various foods which made me more curious. Now that I know it is really possible I can question her doctor on her next visit. Perhaps it can answer some of the other issues she has been struggling with.

My baby was born without a gallbladder. She had duodenal atresia. She had to have surgery as soon as she was born. She is now a perfectly healthy 8 year old.

I was also born without a gallbladder and bile ducts. Growing up I could only poop every 3 days. I was very thin. Weighed 138 pounds and had a 28 inch waist. Over many years I had stomach pain. In the hospital many times trying to find the cause of the pain. In 1982 I drank the stuff to check for gall stones. It would not go thru. So the doc did surgery to remove the gallbladder. He spent 4 hours looking for it. Did not find one. But put in a tube to digest fats. I started gaining weight. Now I am over 200 pounds. I also cannot take statin drugs. I get a pain where the gallbladder should be. I am 77 years old.
