Ok . Last week on a wedsnday i had my GB taken out ... Alot of swelling for the first 2 days or so .But as the swelling went down and i eat i started feeling that same effect as i did before but not as bad . Like someone is blowing a small balloon up under my ribs . Its not painful just drives me nuts to have the feeling . I read up on things about it and one thing i read was it could be phantom . Where my brain hasnt relize my gallbladder is gone . To me it feels like back up pressure . I now think i have ibs cause i go several times a day to where before it was like maybe once every 5 to 6 days . I know before the surgery they did an x-ray and they said i was badly back up . Tomorrow i go for my week check up and would like to know what i should be asking the doctor being that i am still having the syptoms just not as bad . Did anyone else have this problem to where they feel like they swell when they eat ..
