GALL BLADDERS AND CORSETING?
Please realize that we are not medical experts nor
medically trained. Therefore, we cannot render a medical
opinion, or make medical claims regarding our corsets.
However, we can speak from common sense,
common knowledge, general research, consultations with our
medical experts and doctors,
and our personal experience. We can let our clients tell their own stories
about relief they have experienced from various
health conditions and challenges, both permanent and
1.Q. I am a tight lacer and am going to have my gall
bladder out. Could my corseting have affected this matter?
A. In sum, my medical cornoner consultant is
unaware of corseting practices being associated
with or affecting the gall bladder or its problems.
The doctor continued: If there seems to be an association with corsets, it is
be indirect. That is, people corset to help to eat less, and
they sometimes resort to corsets when other diets don't
they may be on statin drugs because their cholseterol
high, or may have had one of more stones for some time
without any complaints.
If the issue is gall stones, they may be removed
if they are small, but since they
tend to recur, it is common to remove the gallbladder
leaving only the ducts which are flushed with
The patient may thereafter experience an altered
tolerance to fatty foods
after the removal of her bile "reservoir", or if
she's had stones
for some time but not known it then it may feel better
and quite quickly after the stone problem is solved.
The person should be able to start wearing corsets
soon as healing is far enough along. If she
them all day or several hours every day,
she can wear them
loosely for support after a couple of weeks.
She can in part
judge by the scar which is well formed when it ceases
pink and starts to turn pale. Hernia patients are
not to lift things for roughly 3 weeks and then avoid
lifting until about 6 weeks after surgery.

interested!), consider this:
- One of the things the liver does for us is
which helps the digestion and absorption of fats.
- Bile comes from the liver and is stored in the
and then injected into the upper part of the small
when it is needed for the proper processing and digestion of
- Normally the bile remains fluid.
- If the bile has too much cholesterol or bilirubin
in it, crystals
may form, and then fuse to form stones. Stones can
size from many little ones like coarse sand to one big
about the size of a smallish hens egg.
- Some people have stones but don't have any problems.
- Problems arise if bile ducts become blocked by small
or a larger stone becomes "wedged" in the tapering outlet of
the gall bladder. Infection may result, causing pain and
condition called cholecystitis.
-If the common bile ducts is obstructed there may be
jaundice and/or acute inflammation of the pancreas.
- Typical gallbladder pain may occur in the upper central
abdomen below the breast bone, or in the right upper
the abdomen, or between the shoulder blades, or in the right
shoulder. It often comes on after eating fatty foods,
last for a few minutes up to and hour.
- The old and crude medical school mnemonic for the typical
patient was: "a fat, fertile, flatulent female of 40
or 50" because gallstones are more likely if female,
age over 60, American
Indian, Mexican American, overweight or obese, pregnant,
on a low fiber diet, diabetic, after losing a lot of
weight rapidly, with
a family history of stones, and after treatment with
