I had my gallbladder removed almost three years ago, and all went well. I have had diarrhoea most of the time since my operation, but that doesn't bother me as much as the medicine that would get rid of it.
Around three months after the surgery, I started having some wierd attacks that sometimes occur after fatty foods (mostly tortilla chips or japanese food). The attacks come on suddenly and are quite painful. It starts out as heavy pressure in the chest and upper abdomen, and after around five minutes, the pain goes to my middle abdomen. When this happens, I don't want to talk, I am very nautseous, and I sweat. It is very scary, but it usually goes away after around twenty minutes. When it is over, I can eat whatever I want. It is so uncomfortable that if it were to last for much more time, I would definately go to the ER.
Last night, I had an attack, and for the first time, it made me throw up. I thought that I was going to pass out, but I didn't. I have wondered if I am experiencing gallstone attacks that can occur without a gallbladder. I also have Crohn's Disease, but that is under control (Remicade), and these attacks don't remind me of anything that I have experienced from Crohn's.
Any ideas for me? Thank you!
