Hi Almost 3 years ago, a month after having my daughter I had to have surgery to remove my gallbladder. I was having a lot of painful gb attacks until they cause pancreatitis. So there was nothing else to do but remove by emergency the gb. That's when all my health problems began. For a long time after surgery, I had gullet spasms, heartburn, chest pain, irritated throat, and even gastritis. It took almost 2 years to feel more normal. I've lost a lot of weight along the way but I'm back to a healthy weight now. I eat a lot more things I completely gave up after surgery eating chocolate, coffee, fatty foods etc. I went on holidays and start eating a lot of crap food and now I have this horrible sore throat which I feel is irritated by acid/ bile and I'm pretty worried that because of that I'll get esophagitis . I know people with no gallbladder are at more risk of having bile reflux and I know I had it after surgery because meds such as proton inhibitors didn't work. I'm scared that is bile flowing into my stomach and my esophagus burning my throat. I'm willing to have a strict diet again and try natural things to see if helps.
Is there anyone going through similar situation I would like to know any advice or ideas you might have. Thank you.
