My doctor is very concerned. I will now undergo testing once a year. The radiologist and the ultrasound tech told me that they had only heard of a handful of people in his 40 years and 2 for the ultrasound tech. My test came back 'normal for my age'. I will ask at what percent that my gallbladder is functioning on Monday. The good news came right at closing today at 5:10 pm from his assistant. I will ask them exactly the percent. I was told that the functioning must reduce to around 30% before removal of the organ. My doctor's office did mention that this will be a yearly exam for me for now on. Hurray for myself!! My Mother has got to be smiling from above!! Hugs and good luck with your exam.......Jennifer
