Crohn's and gall bladder disease

So I'm curious who else has had gall bladder disease either before or after Crohn's diagnosis.

I had mine removed in 2005, 4 years after my Crohn's dx.

Interesting.
Pretty small sample size still (just 10), but 40% of us had our GBs removed prior to Crohn's dx...

My Support Groups:
I had my gall bladder removed in 2003 after a Hyda (??) scan showing it was only functioning at 14%. I was first sent to the surgeon because the GI found bleeding around my appendix during a colonoscopy, and he suspected chronic appendicitis and CD. So, I ended up with my gall bladder removed along with a bunch of adhesions, kept my appendix and still no dx of CD. The last time I bothered to try with my GI again, presenting with the same symptoms as before the surgery, he then tried to tell me that I have some form of diarrhea that people can get after their gall bladder is removed. Humph! LOL
Such a vicious circle I tell you
