Can people who have their gallbladders removed make it big either in physical sports or business or life?Any examples?I might have to get my out at 35

Yes!!!: Big as in successful? I don't have any examples of professional athletes or business (wo)men who've had their gallbladders removed because it's not considered a big deal nor does the surgery or lack of gallbladder impede anyone's function, either on the field or off it. Techniques have advanced dramatically such that removal of gallbladder is now an outpatient procedure with a few small punctures. ...Read more

Madly in love with someone for their personality, but they aren't "my type".. Is there a way to get over physical appearance so i can be with them?

Madly in love with someone for their personality, but they aren't "my type".. Is there a way to get over physical appearance so i can be with them?

Yes, but maybe hard.: If you can do it you will be awarded a great treasure. Your own "wisdom" may be telling you that physical stuff is transitory. Not only aging, but all sorts of events can make it disappear. Personality "clicks" are such a great feeling! they also may foretell that you will have an instinctual understanding and many less isolation shocks. Enjoy the good things and deal with problems as they arise. ...Read more

Does viagra (sildenafil) actually work to make your penis bigger? What are some pros and cons of it? Would u suggest them to teenagers? Where can you get them

Penis envy?: Yes, makes it 'bigger' when you take it, but not permanently. And frequent use won't do it either. It's not the kind of drug you want to get into the habit of using at your age unless you have a specific medical reason to use it, which I would doubt. Message to teenagers: FUGEDDABOUTIT! Not for recreational use! If you've got a problem in that area, see your doctor!!! ...Read more

What to do if i'm also dieting along with exercising, but will this cause my legs to get bulky or will it help tone them?

What to do if i'm also dieting along with exercising, but will this cause my legs to get bulky or will it help tone them?

Tone, not bulk: while in theory either, 1) women do not bulk up as often 2) endurance exercise ONLY does tone and UNDOES bulk (muscles switch to the red, small endurance from the white meat bulk strength muscles). 3) if net loss of mass, trend is against bulk. ...Read more
