About a year ago I underwent a laproscopic cholecsytectomy after several months of sporadic acute pain and sickness after eating. After discovering I had an extremely low ejection fraction my surgeon gave me the option to have my gallbladder removed thinking that was causing the pain, so I did. A couple months after the surgery I began experiencing similar pain as before, but it wasn't quite as frequent or severe. I also am still experiencing trouble with digestion, which I am blaming on the missing gallbladder. However, in the past couple months the pain has become more frequent and sometimes very severe and sharp. The sharp pains come from the right upper quadrant just like before. I've done a lot of research and have noticed other people having similar issues, but never sharing any solution. I have researched some about the sphincter of oddi dysfunction and am continuing to look into that. I saw my surgeon the other week and we scheduled a CT to make sure there were no stones, and it came back clear. Next step is to see a GI physician, but I am wondering if anyone else has had similar issues after gallbladder removal or has ever been diagnosed with sphincter of oddi dysfunction. Any help or advice is appreciated!
