    I had my gallbladder out Sept last year after 11 hospital admissions before i was operated on, I am now experiencing right hand groin pain that is horrendous but it's not there all the time, my stomach at night swells so much I look 6 months pregnant.

    Hope you feel better soon .

      I also have a bloated stomach at night more probably because I have IBS but more after operation, I read somewhere that there is a nerve ending from the waist to the groin that is affected when the gallbladder is removed, mines not there all the time, the pain that is in the groin, but it lasts a few days then goes and then comes back, this is where we are getting the pain, don't know whether you heard this or not and it takes quite a few months to go I hope that this is the case and it will go for us.

    YES!! I have always had IBS but it worsened after gb surgery.I take a powder 3x's a day and 3 immodium tablets every 2 days and this has helped me so much! Sometimes I have watery diarrhea but I let it go then start back to my powder and pills.
