Did anyone have an operation like me without a stone?

Hi I'm 28 years old.

I had my gallbladder removed 45 days ago.

I went to the emergency room several times when I was sick. I felt nauseous, I vomited, and I couldn't eat because of the pain in the pit of my stomach during 2 weeks. But the emergency room doctor said there was no gallstones. So I was diagnosed with gastritis and returned home several times. When I went to the emergency room of the university hospital, they said the gallbladder was swollen. They said it looks like acute acalculous cholecystitis. So I had my gallbladder removed. I have not fully recovered yet. But I wonder suddenly if there is someone like me.

      There are still a few symptoms. I still feel a little bit sick. But it's not as bad as before the surgery. Are there many people like me who have no stones? I didn't know.. smile

    I had mine removed 3 weeks ago, no stones.  I was having horrible nausea after eating and a dull ache in my shoulder blade.   They did a hida scan three years ago that showed it was good.  I finally insisted on a second one recently that showed it was very bad and had chronic inflammation.  My nausea is gone smile

      protein powder? Does the doctor say you can eat protein? My doctor told me to limit protein intake.

      I think I can't eat anything...😂😂

      They say I can't eat fat, meat, protein.

      What on earth should I have?

    I am 3 weeks post o.p tonight. Did not have any stones. Horrible nausea and pain in my back. After blood work and tests the hida scan showed my gallbladder was not functioning properly. Still have a poor appetite.

      So did I. Horrible nausea and pain ToT....

      I didn't test the hida scan. Only CT.

      Seven weeks after my operation, I still feel uncomfortable in my stomach. 😭 I'm pretty sad..

    No stones on first ultasound. No stones on CT. Tiny little stone on second ultrasound but thickened wall. 

    Now awaiting surgery.

      Meeting the surgical registrar on the 28th of this month. It's taken me 15 months of complaining of  feeling really unwell to get this far, so hope it's not to long a wait after that.

      Still the same nausea, upper back pain, dark urine, light colour poops, bloated. The ache in my flank and ribs is constant. I feel so weak, i've been dizzy 24/7 for 27 weeks solid today and seem to hurt all over. My Dr has been no help speeding anything up or helping me and i'm going to sue when it's over!

      How's things with you? Have you come to a decision about surgery?
