    Hi Glad to hear you're recovering well. I'm still pre -op but all can say is I get dizziness now which Drs keep saying is not a gallbladder symptom, however, many posts on these forums etc seem to relate to a connection. Not sure how long post -op you are as this would make a difference, if not long, you may still have meds in your system, or if liver enzymes have been up, these might still be causuing symptoms. Also have you been eating, as I can eat very little/ limited foods at present and this has played havoc with my blood sugars and may cause dizzy spells. From research, some sources say we can expect up to 6 months for the body to adjust after Gb removal, many symptoms may persist, or new ones may occur until it all settles down. If you are worried though, best to mention to the Dr, just in case of any unforseen complications. Good luck and take care.

    I had my gallbladder removed in April last year.

    No dizziness.

    How long since you had your gallbladder out?

    Take care and keep in touch

    Hello, Precious2983!  I don't know how long ago you had surgery, but I was told by my MD that removing the gallbladder is a difficult surgery to get over.  I expected to feel well in a couple of weeks, but it took me much more than that to build up my health again.  My MD reminded me that surgery is still surgery.  Most people have had a long time of feeling terrible before their gallbladder issues get diagnosed and then waiting for surgery.  Take care of your precious self, eat as well as you can, and rest.  Exercise gently, eventually, you'll start to feel better!  Good luck!

    Hi.I suffered severe dizziness after gallbladder removed.. I went to doctors and got prochlorperazine to treat it and it worked,I was so bad with it sometimes I couldn't stand long enough to wash a dish or make a cup of tea...I think it's connected to liver function as I was tested every 2 weeks to check my levels were returning to normal and as results improved so did the dizziness... Good luck x
