    The gurgling was so loud- I was SOOOO hoping it didn't last and it didn't!  But my nausea and pain pretty much subsided after a few weeks....hope yours gets better too.    Good luck.

    Hi Linda, I've had mine out 2weeks ago, ive been advised to take pro biotics daily, digestive enzymes before each meal and slippery elm before I go to bed. I was suffering bad with bloating, gas, burping, and was worried about getting distended tummy as I was looking pregnant and my tummy was very hard. The doctor didn't give me any medication to help I've found out about this via chat groups and others suffering the same. I can't believe the difference it has made! Good luck!

    saga is the right term for it certainly Linda lolcheesygrin? just been in hospital for 10 days and the pain u have at the begining was absoultely awful.cry? after reading up on the gall stone problem over the last couple of days, it seems that this like many other health problems are more of a case of managing it instead of curing it. Those who have had an op and feel great, I envy you eek? as for the rest of us mortals,smile? we can only grin and bare it lol Good luck
