    So sorry to hear this.  After 7 years you must have thought you were out of the woods!!  I am wondering if having GB removed puts a strain on the liver.  Perhpas it's just a temporary thing.  I'm only 1 month post op but am having odd sensations in that are, like gurgling and bubbling feeling.  Bodies are so weird!!  Please get checked out.  I hope all will be well.

    It could also be pancreatitis. I still have my gallbladder (awaiting surgery) but had a gallstone pass down the bile duct and get lodged by the pancreas for 24 hours. Thought it was a bad gallbladder attack and went to the er only to discover it was my pancreas. The stone passed on its own thankfully and pancreas sorted itself out within a few hours

    Hello Marty

    The GB type pain can return after many years because of either gallstones that formed in the bile duct or SOD ( spinchter of Oddi dysfunction) which is more likely to occurred to people gallbladerless. You need to do a scan to know exactly what is happening.
