I had a diseased or malfunctioning gallbladder. It took them 14 wks to discover this .I was deathly ill. After 12 wks it then got so bad I also started having acid reflux on top of everything else. ( bile d. if I ate & it did'nt agree with me  I would get so hot & sick IT was like praying to the porcielon goddess . I would have to wet rags & hold them on my face. The crazy thing is I never would vomit just severe urges) I finally got to the point I could'nt eat anything!All the time I feel like I'm having bad acid like my throat is rawl. I had upper scope done Dr. said everything looked fine no signs of acid ( I had took my protnix that day ) Latter that day Iget thombrosed hem'i have to go to surgion to get it lanced. Then I go get colonoscopy Dr. says everything looks fine he doe's find polyp but says nothing to worry about & also hemi's. They then take my gallbladder out. I then get more thombrosed hemi's. but I do feel better with gallbladder out I can eat again!!!!ooops I must have over done it I became constipated & became impacted!! I even tried an enima all that came out was the watter &blood .Dr. says the blood was my hemi's  just by looking at me . My question is I feel rawl from my throat to my rectum . Is this normal??? I will say Iv'e had all these tests back to back 5yrs ago they done a upper scope & it made me rawl for a while.
 
When my stomach gurgles or doe's that gas thing some times ican almost feel like it's coming up my throat.
 
i'm 2wks &3 days post gallbladder surgery

Hi kyhurst,
I don't have gallbladder problems however there are many on the forum that do. It may be a little slow getting a response since its the weekend but I'm sure you'll hear something soon. Sorry I couldn't be of much help with this topic and I'm sorry that you have been feeling bad.
Take Care

kyhurst,
I had my gallbladder removed several years ago. My releif has been minimum. I have pain on my right side radiating to the back, my upper part of the stomach is swollen, my tryglicerides are on a rollercoaster and I am very frustrated. I also suffer from IBS-D, hiatal hernia and GERD. The pain on my right side and high count of triglycerides really worry me. I am going back to the surgeon to find out what's wrong with my stomach. My heart goes out to you and I want you to know that I can feel and understand your pain. Hope you can find an answer soon. I wish you the best.

Tryglicerides are all the fats we eat. Tryglicerides are transported through the bloodstream as a source of energy for the body. However, high levels of triglycerides increase the risk of diabetes, stroke and pancreatitis.
My trygliceride levels have been on a rollercoaster.
I am not an overweight person and I really do watch what I eat due to the fact that I suffer from IBS-D, GERD, hiatal hernia and gastroparesis.
I am very frustrated and would like to get an answer soon. The doctor hasn't been of any help. He says that it is hereditary but no one in my family has had this problem.

Unfortunately, it can take upwards of 6 weeks for your body to adjust to not having a gall bladder anymore.  The best thing you can do is eat blandly and avoid anything that's hard to digest, like raw vegetables and red meat.  Oh, and try your best to avoid whatever foods were a bad trigger for you before you had your GB out.  For me that was caffeine.  For some it will be dairy or pizza or something else.
 
After 6 weeks, take stock of where you are, because that's pretty well how you're going to be from here on out.  If you have diarrhea a lot, ask your G.I. for Welchol because it will bind up the bile in your stools.  If you are constipated frequently try upping the amount of fat you eat daily (too little fat gave me SEVERE constipation--you need to eat fat to trigger your body to make bile) and if that doesn't help, ask your doctor about getting some bile salts.  These replace the bile that your body isn't producing (as evidenced by the constipation).  I don't think they are a prescription, but I know the pharamacy I went to looking for them when I was constipated (because of my low-fat diet) didn't carry them.  I have seen them for sale online (how I heard about them).  Your doctor should be able to tell you where to get them.  Apparently they've been around for a really long time to treat constipation.  May can find them in an herbal store.
 
My G.I.'s nurse told me that excess bile can go up or it can go down.  When it goes down, you end up with bile diarrhea.  When it goes up, you end up with acid reflux.  Tell your doctor that you think your bile is going up and is there a prescription acid reflux medicine that will help you?  (Bile going up isn't quite the same as stomach acid going up because your stomach isn't the problem in this case, so not all acid inhibitors will work--depends on how they work.)
 
14 weeks?  Lucky!!!  It took five or more doctors 5 YEARS to find my bad gall bladder!  So you're talking to a woman with a LOT of experience with one!  Lol.  Not to mention I've had mine out 3 years now.  I'm much better.  Still can't have caffeine and have developed a problem with apples, but that's pretty much all I have to avoid.  After you get straightened out, add your trigger foods back in one at a time and see how you react to them.  Some you may be able to eat again and some you may not.
