    it's probably post operative  trauma which will take a little while to recover from. I would see a dietician or GP to get onto a recovery diet.

      It’s part of my plan I had already started a low fat high fiber diet before my gallbladder removal but I am seeing a GI soon though as well thanks

    Hi Anthony I'm afraid I did. Few days after my surgery 3 years ago, I started feeling weird symptoms such as chest pain and burning in my throat. Surgeon was very dismissive and said it was acid reflux. But I've never had acid reflux in my life and suddenly after this surgery I had! I had a chest pain for months on end, did several tests inclusive ph 24h to monitor my reflux and none acid! I suffered from very painful esophageal spasms and bile reflux. First confirmed by a new doctor, the second never got tested because there's no tests on NHS Uk besides perhaps an endoscopy . 

    The explanation I got from a new specialist was that the vagus nerve that runs from brain, esophagus to gallbladder was obsviously disturbed from cutting the gb, and was causing me very painful spasms in my chest. I'm not sure it's what you have but my advice is get a good doctor and tell him about your chest pain and hopefully you'll feel better.

      Yeah I have GERD so I can understand the acid reflux perhaps and I also plan on looking for a new doctor as well thank hopefully it does not continue thanks for your input
