 I had my gallbladder removed three weeks ago. I feel better the gallbladder intense pain is gone. I now have D...which I know happens to a lot of people and the problem may fix itself in time. My other problems are I have lost almost ten lbs in these 3 weeks, and I am eating more then enough. I am burping constantly, I can feel the air getting trapped in my chest, it is relieved when I burp. I am also salivating a lot. And sometimes get naseau after eating. Could this be bile reflux? I am at a loss...I guess I was naive to think I would feel amazing after this. Please help.

 I just had my Gall Bladder out 2 weeks ago and I have D everyday. But I always have but now I take meds to stop it and now I have it still. My tummy gets upset over different foods I eat. I have had burping problems or saliva problems so I can't help ya there. But my tummy gets so upset all the time and sometimes it hurts over what I eat. I guess time will resolve it. I go to my surgeon tomorrow for a follow up. Have you been to yours to talk about your problems. Or even maybe a GI doc? I am so glad the pain is gone but I will be glad when my tummy settles down and I can eat normally.

I'm so sorry to hear you are going thru this. Sometimes having your gall bladder taken out will leave the patient with chronic diarrhea. I had mine out but I also had 90% of my sigmoid and 15 inches of my lower colon removed. So I have multiple bm's each day, not from having my GB out. I also do not experience true D but have been reading the many topics here at Healing Well that pertain to GB removals.

Keriamon has been very helpful to members in your situation. Take a look at this excellent topic she started. Also, if you are able to do so, try editing your topic title to specifically ask for help in the GB area.

I wish you my very best.

Hi Rowan, welcome to the site, I'm sorry to hear you're still not feeling well after your surgery. Sometimes it can take quite a while to recover after the surgery, 4-6 weeks isn't uncommon. So be patient with yourself; you may find relief comes slowly. For now, stick to easy-to-digest, low-fat foods, and eat slowly and frequently. This may help. Let us know how you're coming along!
