Is it okay to participate in a 40 day water fast without a gallbladder? I had it removed 2 years ago.

Actually one of the theoretical problems with fasting is that bile will concentrate in the gall bladder and form stones. This seldom if ever happens but it is the theory.. The proof of the pudding, however, is in the eating thereof. I would love to learn how you cope with a longer fast without a gallbladder. Please just be prepeared to break the fast if things goes awry. I would suggest that before embarking on a fast you have your liver functions (and particularly Bilirubin) measured (a blood test) and follow this up regularly during the fast. If you are willing to share the results, I will be honoured to be allowed to advise you during the course of this endeavour.
