    Galbladder removal can trigger complications like IBS and bile acid malabsorption.  A twitching stomach is an IBS symptom. I have had twitching in my stomach with IBS.  I noticed it on the day I was diagnosed.  Pain/discomfort during or after eating is common with Irritable Bowel. Maybe a food diary would help to uncover any food intolerances.

    Also see your doctor again and ask to see a GI specialist.
