IBS symptoms is or not?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi All , I just recently had my gallbladder removed 5 1/2 weeks ago . I'm having stomach pain upper and mid. Just had a endoscopy and colonoscopy all normal but still still have pain I have been to the ER for this pain just recently as well. Abdominal CT scan and blood work all normal. I do get constipated as well I'm taking probihotics, digestive enzymes and acid reducers. This pain can get bad just seeing if it sounds like IBS and if anyone else has had the samething . I do have anxiety and the last 2 months have been very stressful for me with the surgery haven't gone back to work yet so anxiety has build up. Just seeing if anyone has any suggestions .. I'm looking into neurology for help maybe.

      That's what I'm thinking just not sure how long it takes for inside to heal . The pain at times can be rough. Went to chiropractor yesterday I think that was not the right thing he poked and pushed everywhere. I'm hurting now like I did the first week of surgery.

    Hi, why don't you try to reduce your fat intake to 45 gram of fat a day, do that for two weeks and see how you feel. After removal of the Gallbladder you might have problems digesting fat. Look it up on Google. Example Gallbladder removal and Bile Acid Malabsorption.
