Hi Folks!  Had my gaulbladder removed 9  weeks past Friday, and am concerned about some issues which i'm still having!  First of all, still get the occasional bloating feeling even before i  eat.   Then, sometimes my bowel movements are a  bit loose.  Also, i  get a  churning in my stomak which i  used to  get when i  had my gaul bladder.  Are these things normal, and what can i  do to help the situation?  I  also forgot to say, that i'm not sleeping too well and get very shivery which i  used to have when i  had the gaul stones.  any advice is welcome please.  thank goodness in no pain!

      Hi Julie!  Thanks so much for replying.  Good to know i'm not the only one who's experiencing these problems.  Like you, i just want to get back to normal, and suppose i'll just have to be patient.  Hope you get better soon.  ///Val.

    Hi the body needs time to get used to lack of GB I guess. The bile has now a different flow and it is not as ready as it used to be to digest, especially fats( good/bad) so maybe that's why you get loose stools and bloated.  I hope it will only get better as the liver and rest of digestive system adjusts.

    I'm 16 weeks post surgery and I can eat more things now without having awful diarrhea. I don't know if it can help but I eat a lot of probiotic yogurt for a healthy gut. I also felt the churning sensation in my stomach  few times and thought that it could be a stone trapped but I don't feel it so much anymore. 

    hope you'll feel better soon

    Hi!  Thanks so much for that!  I  know that there are no more stones left in the bile duct, because 3  days after my op i  was taken back down to theatre and they removed the stones that were there.  I  guess its just the body adjusting to being without the gol bladder.  hope things will improve both for you and myself.  Unfortunately, i  can't take any probiotics as they cause terrible nosea.  good luck and thanks again.  Val.
