I  suffer from  lots of  crampy wind pain especially  after eating, 

loose stools, constipation,  low  down  stomach pain. 

Are these  the symptoms of gallbladder problems  or something else  ?

    hello linda, well sounds a little familiar, but you must get to your local surgery,discuss with them,they will arrange for you to have an ultra sound scan to see if they can see anything,it picks up most things,my symptoms  at first were terrible like stabbing pains, stuck it for 3 days,was then rushed to our hospital gb out,;;;; sent home next say,    even tho i have all ways eaten carefully surgeon told me my gb was in a bad state,they removed all,plus i had a very large stone trapped,which was causing the severe pain, get to your doc asap,

      Hello Terry 

      I have had 2 ultra  sounds  so  I  know  I  have  gallstones. 

      I'm  just  wondering  if  they cause  bowel  symptoms  like  I  have.   I  can't  eat

      anything  now without  pain  and  loose  stools  afterwards.
