Upper RQ dull ache 2 years after gallbladder surgery

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hiya - for a bout a week now I have been getting a dull ache on right side of back just under bra level, slightly radiates round to the side. This is similar to how my gall bladder attacks first started before it got unbearable. I had the op two years ago and all had been well.  

It started when I started eating healthy last week I would say at first I thought my body getting rid of bad toxins may be putting kidney or liver under pressure. Now not sure as I had a bad eating day today and am in more discomfort (exactly how I was with gb) scared to death to go docs as don't want more surgery As no sooner was I released I was in with an internal bleed and the worse pain ever ended up back in for about 10 days. 

Any ideas

    I just had my gb out 8 days ago and every time I eat I am getting the same pain I had before surgery. Keep me posted I don't know what to do.

    Give yourself time to heal. What are you eating. I hope soft diet. No fats. How much are you eating at one meal. It's all moderation. That's what works for me. 3 months after surgery.

    Yes I used to get that as a first signs of acid problems, no-one could ever find out why and could not link the 2 but that was it was, I had every test going.  That was 30 years ago and it would go after H2 blockers at that time for 12 months and it would always take 12 months, that pain just like you said for a year!!! Now I'm on PPIs and have been for the last 5 years all the time sad but they do sort me out.
