Hi all. I had my gallbladder out on April 17. I had diarrhea once or twice but was pleased that stools were pretty normal. My biggest issue was pain. I have alot of sharp pinching pains. Surgeon at 4 weeks said it was normal. I have been careful with my diet and seemed to be doing ok even with the pain. I actually had a few pain free days and thought I had turned the corner. It didn’t last. At 8 weeks my pain changed to an area higher in stomach in center below ribs. Excruciating! Also starting feeling sort of crampy in lower abdominal area. Ended up in ER and they did a CT. All normal. Pain is less but the other pains I have had all along still there. I have had 2 really bad bouts of diarrhea in a week. One was last night and I also felt nauseated. So basically I am getting worse instead of better. I am not eating anything bad and am now actually having to be even stricter with diet. Constant pain and now diarrhea and nausea are the main things going on. My surgeon has basically said he’s done and to see a GI. My question is why am I suddenly worse and worse when things seemed to be healing at 4 weeks? I started taking probiotics on week 2 and added digestive enzymes on week 3. They seemed to help but then I wasn’t sure. Have gotten off and on some and couldn’t really tell. ER doc told me to stop the enzymes and keep probiotics which I did. Digestion was terrible yesterday which led to tons of diarrhea during the night. Anyone had a similar experience? I am so discouraged.
