I was diagnosed with gallstones in Aug 2014 after a couple of nasty attacks. Finally had it removed in Mar this year. I had terrible symptoms, pain, nausea, couldn't eat and lost a stone and a half in weight. When I was pushed through for surgery as an emergency, I felt like all my Christmases had come at once. I expected to be sore after wards and to continue with a low fat diet, but didn't expect to feel how I do. I have imense tiredness, very little or no energy and still experiencing pain and nausea, especially after eating. I am at my wits end and it has affected me mentally now as I already suffered with a sickness phobia so have been living my worst nightmare. It has become so extreme that I avoid leaving the house now. Please someone tell me these feelings will subside and I will start to feel normal again sad

    Just like to add a thought to what everyone's saying.

    Gallbladder removed September 2014. Basically ok, two weeks after op loads of bile, bowels all over the place and very bad dieahorrea causing excruciating pain. Ambulance called but Managed not to get re admitted. Over time this has been

    repeating its self and each time is worse. Ended up in a&e Monday night. To my shock found out that I was compounded, in other words full to brimming with faeces. I was on overflow as they put it. Was given meds and waiting for them to start working. Hoping this will be the answer to it. So may be worth asking one's doctor for x Ray to check out your bowels. The symptoms by so many are what have been through so maybe worth looking into.

      Hi janet74211,

      Oh my goodness, how awful. I suppose anything is a possibility, so investigations post op should be mandatory to make sure things like what you are suffering with are caught sooner rather than later. Hope you're feeling better soon xxx
