I had my gallbladder out in October, I was fine for 6 months no pain no problems. Well for over a month now I have had nothing but problems and it’s causing me anxiety ☹️

I have been getting pain where gallbladder use to be and having yellow stools if I eat something that doesn’t agree with me! Not only that now I started to get pain under my lower left rib and I can feel rumbling. 

I have been to the hospital and they did blood,urine,and ct scan all came back normal! I went to my Gi doctor 2 weeks ago and I have to have a endoscopy done next week. I am taking protonix and bentyl but nothing seems to work with me. Oh and I have been drinking pepto a lot. My chest is on fire sometimes and my stomach! I am just really really scared it’s pancreatitis because stupid me has been reading stuff on google and it has me having anxiety attacks! Please if anybody has been thru this tell me what you think it is!!

      I had gallbladder sludge and pain. 

      I was having trouble eating because of the pain. After the surgery I was 💯 better for 6 months and now I’m having problems ??

    Sounds a lot like gastritis? I took omeprazole for a month for that then took it when on ibuprofen as well as it irritates my stomach. Maybe worth trying it? Not sure if it’s worth waiting until after the endoscopy first though xx

      It’s like one day it’s under my right ribs and then the next day it’s under my left it driving me crazy☹️ My anxiety is going crazy because all I read it pancreatitis and I’m terrified

    I had my gallbladder out 15 years ago and had the pain you describe off and on  since that time.   However, a month ago the pain was so bad, I thought I was having a heart attack!   The gastro  doctor did a scope down my throat and removed 50 cc's of BILE from my stomach...that is a LOT!   He explained that when gallbladder is gone, bile "drips" into your stomach and if you can't get rid of it, can cause extreme pain.   I had been trying the Keto diet, which is high fat, and obviously, it got me into lots of trouble...I lost weight but it wasn't worth the pain i experienced.   I should have known better.   Long story short, he gave me omerprazole 40 mg, which is a time-released drug that helps heal the inflammation caused by the bile.   I would NEVER have believed bile in your stomach could cause pain that felt like a heart attack, but when I woke up from the scope, I felt 100 percent better than when they put me to sleep.   Good luck to you!
