My sage advice is tell the surgeon you want to keep it. Put it in a fancy bottle and sell it to the chinese as a bear gall bladder. They can bring up to $10000 on the black market.

Most gall bladder surgery is laparoscopic now. Very small incisions and a lot less post-op pain than previous. My son had to have his out when he was 13 years old and was home the next day. He experienced very little pain and was happy to have that gall bladder out and an end to the problems it caused.
Any pain you have will probably be a lot less than that gall bladder is causing you now.

Matt's idea of selling it as bear gall is great...unless the Fish and Wildlife folks come after you.

chinese as a bear gall bladder
Hey Matt,

I've actually had some. It works very well, too, but it's powdered. Tastes awful, and is taken with clear spirits.



"Items used in folk medicine such as dried bear gall bladder from China are subject to confiscation when exported to the United States."
