Gallbladder Pain years after surgery!!

Posted , 4 users are following.

This July has marked 3 years since Ive had my Gallbladder removed. Dr. Said it was only working at 1%. But it seems to me since the gallbladder has been removed I have experienced more pain and issues. I have been having to take Bentyl due to the spasms I experience. The spasms start on the right side radiates to my back and sometimes knocks the breath out of me. I have had a CT, ultrasound, EGD nothing has been diagnosed as to why im having these. Some doctors say its a issue that was probably forming before the surgery. I believe not!! Then im told its IBS-C gastritis esophagitis!! Im sure i have inflammation due to the gastritis always have even before the gallbladder removal.

But this pain is crazy. I shouldn't live the rest of my life like this.

Im looking to see if anyone else is experiencing these problems. 7/16/16.

    I had mine out at the end of March this year, was back in the hospital the 4th of July with the same pain.  ECRP done for nothing.  My liver enzymes were at 5.  I'm convinced we over produce bile, with or without gall bladder, causing severe pain.  I see no resolution for this and will not return to ER.  Can't afford the medical bills.  Last time I was in hospital for FIVE days.

    Please try mineral water! I've had horrible pain since my gallbladder removal in 1990 many trips to the ER in horrible pain. I searched online to help myself and found the suggestion. I drink mineral water every day and when I do have a Flare up it is relieved right away!

    Try mineral water today please!
