In 2009 I started getting horrible pain attacks right under my sternum and it radiated into my back. All of my doctors said it was acid reflux. I lost about 60lbs over 5 months, and I was incredibly weak. When I told my doctor about my weight loss he said "what's you secret?" What an ass!! Eventually a nurse suggested to the doctor that it could be my gallbladder, and I had emergency surgery to remove it. My doctor said that it was dead inside of me for about a year, but that everything should be fine now that it was gone.

2 weeks after surgery the pains started again. The only things that I have noticed that bring on an attack is drinking liquor, or being very nervous about something(job interview etc.) Sometimes I go two months without an attack, and sometime it is every day. It has the normal pains everyone mentioned shoulder, back, under sternum pain. The other symptom I have not seen anyone mention is being severely hot. I have honestly laid in the snow before during an attack. My boyfriend has put me in ice baths, but it pretty much feels like I am burning alive. Sometimes I pass out from the pain, which is rather inconvenient. I went to the doctors multiple times and they all say acid reflux. One jerk said that it was ghost organ pain. It is quite frustrating. I feel like I have to plan life around the possibility of getting an attack.

Gallbladder attack? Apple cider vinegar - a couple of tablespoons in water every day. Incorporate more beets in your diet. Or drink beet juice. Start taking probiotics for your digestive track.

If you've already had it removed, probiotics will still be good for your stomach.

Of course its not normal... I had it done with no complications at all.. something has been left behind and should be removed, as I know the pain is unbearable...take pain killers as soon as you feel it coming on as this can help , the first time I had symptoms I thought it was a heart attack and was slumped over the back of the settee to try and help the pain.. and couldnt walk or talk... get it seen to.

Something worse is going on. If you're bleeding you need to seek help asap not be asking advice here.

Pontoll: Glad I read your entire May 2013 post wherein you have pain when bending or lying on your belly because that is what has been happening to me. I had lap chole in Nov. 2011, some few little pains since then in RUQ now and then, not often, but this almost feels like a pulled muscle, a soreness. Feel queasy once in awhile but I tend to overeat although I'm not overweight and have had queasiness occasionally since I was in my 20's, never could pinpoint why other than anxiety. If they ever figure out what's going on, please post. I have a doctor's appt soon for something else (headaches), but will mention this to him if His Highness has time. It has been worse, and better, so I'm just in a holding pattern.

I just saw my doctor today for my follow up appointment after having Gall Bladder Surgery, which was done laproscopicaly. I have to say that a day or two after my surgery I had terrible pain and was not quite sure if that's how bad I was supposed to feel. I then read these posts and got really freaked out. I started envisioning a life full of pain and problems. But I'm happy to say that I'm 16 days post surgery, and you have to remind me that I even had surgery. I am almost completely pain free, aside for occasional discomfort when I power walk. I get pain on my right side, but the doctor told me that it's normal, and I should expect it for another few weeks. I was thrilled when he told me that I have no food restrictions and can exercise regularly. He just mentioned not to do ab crunches for another month. I happen to have been on a low fat, low sugar diet prior to surgery and I continued to remain on the diet throughout recovery without any problems. I did have pain the first 3-4 days after eating and I suddenly got diarrhea on day #3 post surgery. But that all went away quickly. I was back at my desk job 7 days after surgery. I do get lightheaded and dizzy occasionally as well , but was told by my surgeon today, that this too is normal and no need to be concerned. I'm happy to say that this surgery took away all the pain and discomfort from my gallstones and it was well worth going through the procedure. My heart goes out to those of you who have complications. I hope you find a cure to your ailments soon!
