hi all. I had my gallbladder removed 2 weeks ago today due to it being full to the brim with stones. I suffered for 2 years with multiple gallbladder attacks after eating the slightest amount of fat. I also was getting bad heartburn, indigestion and reflux which my surgeon and my mother who also had the op years ago said would completely go. Recovery wise I'm feeling great. It's nice knowing that I am able to eat and enjoy food again without getting an attack. But I am still getting the heartburn, indigestion and reflux? I'm not sure if it's acid or bile causing it. I have omeprazol left from before my surgery that was supposedly controlling it so I'm going to try taking that to see if it relieves it at all. I'm hoping it's just waiting for things to settle and not that it's something else causing it. I have a follow up appiontment with my surgeon in a few weeks so I'll mention it to him. I'll admit I've not been great in terms of diet post surgery either. Been enjoying all the things I had to deny myself over the past two years. I asked the surgeon before my surgery if I was okay to eat what I liked afterwards and he said to let things settle for a few days first (which I did) but yes I should have no issues with diet post surgery. Anyone with any advise as to how to tell what's causing it. I'm assuming that because I had it before my op and after that it's acid and not bile as your gallbladder is responsible for the bile right?
