    Stones in the spleen isn't anything to worry about as it normally doesn't need any treatment have they given you a blood test to check for calcium levels as that is one that can cause stones n the liver spleen etc causing malabsorption they will check for ulcers etc in your stomach or excess acid which is causing your heart burn

    Wait until you get your results from the endoscopy

    And ask the doctors what it all means but don't worry about the spleen

      Thanks, I've not seen Dr yet. I don't have heartburn. This all started after I had emergency gall bladder removal 2 years ago, just getting fed up with it. Scared to eat. Then I'll have a "good" few days then back to square one. Thanks again.

      Sorry it's the burning in your stomach that is also caused by over acidity

      I wouldn't think it's connected with the removal of your gallbladder but yes see a go about any concerns

    Hi, it is still possible to have bam after gall bladder removal. i looked this up a few months ago for another fellow sufferer on here ( i suffer with bam & still have my gall bladder-no stones). are you on any meds for bam? i take questran (cholestyramine) sachets 2 at a time twice daily & it relieves my symptoms/controls it 90%.
