Welcome to Healing Well. It sure sounds like you have gone through a lot. My husband also had his gallbladder out many years ago and he still gets that sudden pain in his upper abdomen also. Of course he won't go to get it checked out but I'm thinking that its probably the bile burning probably dumping too much at a time since there is no gall bladder to regulate it.
I'm sorry to hear that you have endometriosis. I have heard that can be very unbearable. The symptoms can be very close to IBS so you may be experiencing pain from that may be imitating IBS pain. I would definitely talk to your doc about
it, surely there is something they can give you to help with the pain which would probably help with the IBS pain as well.
I definitely suggest seeing your GI and/or your GYN to talk about
these issues. You shouldn't have to live with the pain.
