    Dianne nausea is a common side effect after gallbladder removal. It can take time to settle down. Also having pains were the gallbladder was is also common after the operation. It can take 6-12 weeks to settle down or longer in some people. I had nausea for over 5 months after the operation and it's only settled down in the last few weeks. Try ginger tea or acupuncture if it persists. That's what helped me. Take care xx

    Sorry to hear that but my expertise is limited back to Feb '15.

    I am aware that a percentage of folk taht have their gallbladder removed are not the better of it for a few months.

    If possible, arrange for an MRI early in the morning after you experience pain.

    Perhaps raise the issue of SOD with your doctor.

    Good luck

    It sounds like you may be slightly anemic. I would get tested for iron deficiency if you can. If they will do a full mineral panel that would be best. But at least get iron, magnesium, d3, b12, potassium and zinc tested.
