peewee I have not had any gall bladder problems but at a prenatal massage recently my massage therapist told me to limit my intake of Tums. She said she had emergency gall bladder surgery post-partum and knows of one other person who had the same thing and I guess they were both told by holistic health practitioners that Tums might be to blame. I realize this bit of info is largely useless since it's not necessarily your situation AND there isn't any clinical data but, in case it offers you any insight, I thought I'd pass it along. Hopefully, it's not starting a new "old wives tale".
I feel like I've written this before on these boards and hope I haven't just told you the same thing twice.
I hope you feel better soon.
