Stomach/digestive issues after gallbladder surgery?

Posted , 14 users are following.

Guys I really would appreciate all the info and advice you might have. I got my gallbladder removed on August 5th and during the week of my recovery or two, I felt alright. I think perhaps around the third week I started feeling sick after I ate and this full and pressure feeling in my stomach after I ate the smallest thing. Also felt nausea again. I'm so angry, I thought this surgery was suppose to fix all my problems sad. Anyway, I seem to be having digestive isuws. I would like to be able to eat a normal meal without feeling sick after for hours or so bloated and full like I ate five meals. I even hate eating now. I keep loosing weight and its me good, I'm currently underweight and I'm 25 years old and about 5'6. I weigh 90 pounds sad. This is scaring me and I don't feel good or like myself. Any suggestions if I need probiotics or enzymes maybe? Anything i would appreciate please I feel like I'm going to feel like this forever and end up dying or something. Just wanna be healthy again, these issues are making me feel depressed and anxious.

    I'm sure you probably had antibiotics during the surgery. Anytime you take antibiotics I highly recommend taking probiotics to get your stomach flora back to good or else bad bacteria such as yeast can overgrow. I had my gallbladder out 2 weeks ago and I've been taking probiotics and a multivitamin everyday. I feel amazing.

      I had no antibiotics just regular pain medication but I'm so tired of feeling like this! Which probiotics do you take and is it a regular multivitamin? How should I take probiotics when I get them, one before every meal?
