    Gerd can cause a lot of your problems especially the left side pressure and anxiety.  Did they find anything on the endoscopy?

    good luck,  I hope they can figure it out.  I had GERD real bad but had it surgically fixed.  I have all the sympoms of a bad gall bladder but it tests good so I understand how it is to be so sick but be told nothing is wrong.  Have you been tested for small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)   You have all of the symptoms?

    YouTube has some great videos on what happens with the bile after our gallbladders are removed. I had all of your issues but am doing very well now, I eat pretty much what I want but smaller meals and I take ox bile supplements which is the number one most important thing I ever did, it's not a perfect solution and it's a lot of trial and error with dosage, I take 1-2 125 mg capsules with dinner, some people need to take with each meal, some need higher dose with each meal but I really urge you to do the research on ox bile and try it

      You can purchase ox bile online through Amazon, I use Nutricology 125 mg. Read the reviews and research. I too had every test imaginable and they found nothing so they label it IBS which means they don't know. I kept researching on my own, I tried different medications, supplements, diets all of it but still felt miserable especially at night bloating, gas, pain in my chest,  but after the ox bile no more gas, it's made a world of difference.

      do you only take it with dinner?  I still have my GB but have almost all of the symptoms of it being bad.  Just curious

      I mostly just take it with dinner but I will take it anytime if I am eating a higher fat content meal like red meat. Even though the ox bile works well there are still foods to avoid like high fat meats, fried foods, dairy etc. You say you still have your gallbladder? If you have a bad one and eat high fat foods the symptoms can be the same, pain in chest, bloating, have you had tests?

      Ya that's like me it's been almost 9 years. If you've been tested and they found nothing I would also do a low fat diet, eating smaller meals, don't eat late. Research fodmap diet but like I said I did every test, tried all kinds of prescription medications, dietary supplements and diets and the only true difference I had was with the bile but yes do the research yourself, you'll find it's safe, low side effects (too much) will give you diarrhea). If nothing else try it for a week, it doesn't cost a lot so what have you got to lose and you just might find your answer

      Hi Debsa I did my cholecystectomy almost  3 years ago had so many symptoms that subsidised with time, and now recently my throat start burning chest pain I think esophagus is irritated gas bloating . I was eating everything, I know coffee is very acidic and fatty meals. now I have gerd symptoms. Taking a PPI still burns  a bit. Do you think this all because of bad indisgestion because of lack of bile or there's probably too much bile causing reflux pain? Maybe I need a supplement to help too.

      Hi Leni75 one thing I don't think a lot of people know is sometimes gerd symptoms are actually a symptom of low stomach acid. First thing I would do is cut out acid reducers, don't eat late, eat low carb, low fat and even try the ox bile, it's safe and also you'll know right away if it's going to work for you or not, took like three days and I felt so much better although getting the dosage that works for you is sort of trial and error, I took too much at first, now I usually just take at dinner but definitely with a higher fat meal. Good luck to you smile

      Yes my life feels very miserable again too. I've been in tears a lot of this pass two weeks and my family goes through this as well. So you suffered a lot with acid reflux too after surgery? I can't feel it but my throat hurts and my esophagus. I've been feeling warm sensations in my chest too. I really hope it's not something more than just acid . I'm also constipated. I'm taking esomeprazole but haven't helped much. I'm taking sucralfate too to coat my inside as much as possible. Today I'm also with an awful cold symptoms that my 3 year old pass on.. I can't get out of bed. Hope you feel better soon.

      Hi Debsa its nice to know soMething works for someone. I've been  weeks searching on the internet about no gallbladder and reflux because I'm almost sure they are related and always comes up Bile reflux. I don't want to think I have bile going into my stomach but there's a possibility causing this gerd symptoms so severe. I also read that people gallbladerless should take digestive enzymes or the ox bile . I'm just a bit concerned it will make my burning worse by increasing more bile in my digestive system. I'm not eating any more fatty meals for now it's hurting too much my esophagus   I'm also constipated since started and a pain above my belly button when I press ( gut) . I'm so scared that this won't go and I feel very depressed and not enjoying life.

      I take the ox bile just before I eat, I haven't had any burning feeling or symptoms of acid reflux from it at all. I'm so sorry you're having so much trouble now but if you do decide to try the ox bile and it doesn't work within the first week I would see the doctor again as it may be something other than the gallbladder issue
