    Question High Lipase and Gallbladder issues?

    I didn't have any issues with milk pumped for Amee. And I pumped a little for Vyse when I knew I'd have to have surgery, and that milk was fine also. But now, I've had my gallbladder out and suddenly my pumped milk gets a "soapy" smell to it, and curdles/sours really quickly. So I'm guessing that I have Lipase issues now that my gallbladder is gone. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    Hello,
    I am now two weeks gallbladder free (and pain free yay!). I pumped to store twice since the operation and I haven't noticed anything different. Sorry that I can't be much of help. :/
