Hi, everyone! My name's Gracie and after a few months of nausea, burning and constant belching I finally got my gallbladder removed about a week ago! My gallbladder must've been going bad for a long time because my surgeon told my parents after surgery that my gb looked pretty rough. It's been very difficult to watch some people come out of surgery and feel great and eat whatever! I have not yet graduated to that and I'm starting to worry that I never will. My stomach is still burning after some meals. Trust me, I am NOT eating anything fatty or spicy. I'm eating sliced turkey, rice, bananas, oatmeal, etc. Nothing acidic. No seasoning. I'm even eating gluten free and dairy free because a friend with their gb removed recommended doing that after surgery. With all that being said, I'm still experiencing some weird acid feeling in the pit of my stomach that maybe lasts like an hour after some meals. I'm lucky that I'm not having much diarrhea. I wonder if this is my digestive system trying to get back on track? It has only been about a week so maybe I need to give myself more time? Have any of y'all tried Aloe Vera juice? Should I start drinking that? Btw I had an endoscopy before my surgery so I know I do not have any irritation in my stomach so that's good news I guess! But I definitely don't wanna just ignore this and end up doing some damage later on! I hope all of you are on the road to recovery, whether you choose surgery or not! I'm still glad I did either way
