Bum Tum, you should post your question at the IBS board, there's a poster there, "Keriamon" that knows tons about the gallbladder...and there are a few gallbladder topics over there since there seems to be quite an issue with IBS-gallbladder problems for many.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

You can still develop stones after cholecystectomy, only they lie in the common bile duct instead of the gallbladder. Symptoms are similar to those associated with cholecystitis. An abdo ultrasound would confirm their prescence or if there was common bile duct dilatation. Normally they can be removed endoscopically

Hope this helps

Definitely get it checked out as soon as possible....could be something else going on. Sounds as though an ultrasound is in order.

The liver is also in the vicinity...something we as UCers need to get checked via blood tests.
