Possibly every surgery can have it's complications..one thing about surgery, it can't be undone. I deal with a surgery with many complications, going on 9 yrs. Sorry you are having issues, many here rave about their G.B. removals.

Just talking to my neighbor and we don't chat a lot but today she wanted to. She's 65 or so and was hit with RA in 2014 and in 2016 had pain in her stomach area and went to UCLA a teaching hospital and the "team" of learning students and the head doctor took out my friend's G.B. and she claims she's had so many issues since the removal. She was the students' guinea pig. She believes she was used to teach the students on G.B. removal. ummmmm

I just posted about my friend who believes her G.B. was removed unnecessarily as well. I don't know if you are still around here as your post is old.

I had my gallbladder removed 6 months ago after two years of suffering. Then two months after I felt so I'll I had this odd pain on my chest I woke up like it one morning and then I felt as if I had a blister that was situated inside my chest if I breathed in it would be painful, after an 8 day stay in hospital.they let me home the pain carried on and I attended the GP 4 times in a month just to come out more upset as they were not concerned at all, I have seen my consultant who signed me off and got the doctor to tell me I had so much time off work that they started being sarcastic to me. The only thing I found that worked was going on a gluten free diet I would recommend anyone who has had gall bladder removal due to changes in dietary tract to get tested for crohs and celiac disease within a few days the pain stopped for me you need to be tested cause if it goes untreated it can cause nerve damage. I mean I tried everything from various pain killers to remedies to fizzy drinks, however three weeks later I started trying to introduce new foods and am.back to square one now with pains in my neck and chest so I am going to have to go back on the diet. I don't find the GP any good I think if they can't anything significant they ain't interested I should go back cause the last few days I feel lowsy but am fed up of being told it's post cholosectomy and they ain't interested it's a viscous circle you end up at all dead end roads that lead to nowhere and that makes you depressed but you get told you are depressed and that is why you feel way you do I have heard certain anti depressants can work for medical reasons because it shuts off the spincter and tricks your brain that's my next step to ask the GP. I don't think anyone realises what's it's like until they suffer.

They tested me for kidney stones, I have none. I had the pain again in late November, back to the ER. This time they did a CT scan and ultrasound and found 2-3 small gall stones. They said I was having 'gall attacks' caused by these stones. I had my gall bladder removed laproscopically in December of 2008, and the pain in my upper-right abodmin has not gone away. The pain has actually been occuring even more. I have already had two of these attacks with discomfort on a daily basis. The pain is so intense it brings me to my knees, I have even passed out once due to the pain. I usually get the pain in the mornings and after eatting greasy foods.In the past 2 weeks, I have been to the doctor 4 times and had blood work, ultrasound, x-rays and an MRI done. All of these came back normal. Now they are suspecting me for Celiac Disease, and I am going in for more tests shortly. If this is true, goodbye wheat. Did I mention that I already have severe food allergies to soy, milk and peanuts...I need to fix this pain because it is ruining my life... oh yea, I am only 25.
Greasy foods can set off these attacks--with--or without--your gallbladder. Please research a way of eating that's supportive of your health..low-fat with lots of vegetables and good proteins... Fried foods are not your friend...or buttery and oily sauces...

Hello- I know this was posted several years ago, but after long bouts of on/off pain, I decided to go online and see if this could be related to my past gall-bladder removal. I came across your post and I share the exact same symptoms!! The pain is nearly impossible to describe from the trapped gas- but carbonation is the ONLY thing that will work! I feel it come on and from beginning to intense pain is probably less that 30 seconds. I'm curious if you ever had the doctor check this out and if you were given any helpful answers or treatment? TIA

Google sphincter of oddi dysfunction. I suffered with this for 6 years and was misdiagnosed by many doctors, the very best specialists and surgeons. I traveled great distances experiencing continual misdiagnosis or disbelief about my pain. I underwent every uncomfortable, invasive test, scan, ct, mri, etc available. My gallbladder was unecessarily removed. Next I had to convince Dr's I had sphincter of oddi dysfuntion. I was finally successfully cured by having a sphincterotomy. I previously unknowingly suffered with acute and chronic pancreatitis for those 6 years which was mistaken for gallstones, gallsludge,depression, acid reflux etc... I didn't need my gallbladder removed and even told Dr's I suspected sphincter of oddi dysfunction instead. They said it was "too rare" and instead prescribed antacids, anti depressants etc.. Doctors didn't want to acknowledge that I might know my own symptoms and be correct about my diagnosis. Now I still get a little pain if I eat a really fatty meal, but am able to eat normal food without crippling pain and have gained back the 20 + lbs I had lost over the 6 years of misdiagnosis and unnecessary gallbladder removal.

Has anyone had their Gallbladder removed and a Biliary Stent inserted in their bile duct afterward? I had this procedure done 2 months ago. What was your experience like? I am due to have my stent removed soon, and have been getting gnawing aches, cramps, and bloating in my upper stomach and side that come and go everyday, along with some pain when I bend down, but nothing severe like before. I have been managing by taking Extra Strength Tylenol 500mg. Did anyone take Mylanta to coat their stomach? I know for a fact that stress causes painful cramping. I sincerely appreciate everyone's advice and comments here, especially about diet and vitamins. Thank-You

A stent was placed in my pancreatic duct and it caused pain. But I was also suffering from post surgerical pancreatitis as well. Some people are unknowingly suffering from pancreatic duct issues, rather than gall bladder. Too many unecessary gall bladder removals and not enough focus on the pancreas instead. Eat low fat, low acid, which require less bile and pancreatic enzymes.

From all I've read many with G.B. removal take ox bile which I did my research and take it myself and I have my G.B. I learned about this when a friend was going thru so much with G.B. removal and other parts of her stomach...she really suffered and did pass.
