wondering what other symptoms can come from gallbladder not working properly. Got a test and doc said i probably need it out. However, my stomach pains went away. However, i have skin issues. Flushing of skin easily, red eyes alot, sensitive skin, skin bruises easy. Eyes go red after one beer and after i eat it seems like warmth all over my body and eyes get heavy. Just wondering if this is a sign of gallbladder...

hello there...
I honestly don't think your symptoms add up to gallbladder trouble.
I had mine out this year and never experienced your situation prior to the removal.
I wonder about allergies for your eyes and your skin ???
Are you in good physical shape ?? Just asking
I am concerned about you eating and being tired so soon afterward...
Let us know what your doctors say ...
If I or anyone else has feedback we will let you know !!
Also would like to add that my tests for gallbladder actually all looked 'ok' .
I sought out a surgeon myself and have never regretted having that sucker out !!
I feel so much better !!!
Take care, Annie

Hello ShaneA655,

Please do as Annie suggested. Feeling tired after eating is a symptom of a metabolic disorder such as diabetes or hypoglycemia. Please get checked.

Hello. Can anybody tell me, I've heard that once you have your gallbladder out a common side effect you might say is to gain a lot of weight. Has anybody had that happen? I don't know yet if my problem is my gallbladder but if it is I don't want it out if I'm gonna gain a lot of weight. I've battled my weight most of my life and since the nissen I'm finally down to where I should be and I definitely don't want to gain it back.

Hi lil peanut
Please dont use cap locks, it makes your words look angry. Thank you
If you reread my post you will see that I did not say my gb was fine, I did say that all my tests were coming out normal..however I wasn't satisfied with the pain I was in that nothing was wrong, so I sought out a surgeon who interviewed me and we together agreed
that surgery was the answer for me and it certainly was. !!
After the gb was removed the doctor found that it was indeed diseased !!
I feel good about having my gb removed and my body has adjusted to it wonderfully and I also would like to add that I have no bowel trouble as some of my friends did after the surgery...none at all !!
Southern star..I have not gained weight from my surgery , rather from quitting smoking , but it is all worth it !!! Smoke free for a year and nine months now !!!!!!! Woohoo!!!
I hope this cleared up the confusion for you peanut, let me know
take care Annie

I am sorry but I have never been up on the internet protocol but thank you so much for your information. While this perhaps should be another thread I too have gone through a series of tests for the Galbladder and they all show up normal howver i still have a stabing pain between shoulder blades and sometimes it feels like a sunburn.
My sister in law would swear that its the galbladder since she had hers out an like you her life has been quite normal. Thanks so much for your input. If you would like to continue discussion I have a thread entitled getting off PPI as I would be interesed in your symptoms and how long you were like that.
