Hi from the US. Had my GB removed after 2 years of attacks in Oct 2013. Surgeon didn't believe it was my GB as it was just "swollen". Surgery proved GB was decayed, even adhered to liver (they had to scrape it off my liver) and had a huge stone inside. Fast forward three months, diarrhea started, even when eating toast/crackers. Was diagnosed with PCS at Gastro, placed on Welchol, due to side effects of med I stopped it & started all natual supplements (digestive enzymes, probiotic, DGL Licorice, etc.) and those have fixed that problem. Fast forward nine months, having right side pains and URQ pain same as when I had GB attacks. Pain will radiate into chest and around my back. Have had CT scan, xray, blood work x 100, you name it. Was also diagnosed as anemic & B12 deficiient as I was on Nexium for GERD. Stoped the Nexium as I was so anemic I had to have an iron infusion, was very ill for months, still very low in B12 although I get injections monthly, feel like crap overall. Due to complication with SOD I don't care to have Gastro investigate that, just wondering if there is anything anyone has tried to stop the recurring pain? I have also modified my diet to the tenth degree, low fat, low cal, low carb, etc. due to constant GI issues. So grateful to find a recent thread on these issues
