After going to the gi dr they prescribed me Librax. It has stopped the spasms but it still feels like someone lit a match and through into my gi tract. My appetite is still gone and losing weight (which is not good at all for me). My anxiety of course isn't helping my gi issues but since my gallbladder surgery everything has gotten so much worse. I'm going to end up back in the hospital for failure to thrive again. Please give me some advice suggestions encouragement something!

Sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time. Even though you don't have an appetite I would set an eating schedule up for several very small meals though out the day. You have to get calories in there. The added food may also help calm down the burning.

Take care,
Bill

When did you have your gallbladder out? What were your symptoms before the surgery? Can you tell us details about your symptom history?

All of my tests for gallbladder were normal, but. I was having the atypical gallbladder pains and symptoms.... Pain under right rib went around my side up through my shoulder blades. They removed mine due to inflammation, no gallstones. The librax now taking it on my second full day is starting to kick in a bit now. Most of the burning has stopped, the spasms are less frequent and the pain has pretty much subsided. Seems librax might be the symptom fixer. From my understanding it can take quite some time for your digestive system to equal out after losing your gallbladder. I've heard everything from a few days to several months and some even longer. I'm hoping mine will equal out soon, but at least I've got something now that seems to be helping a great deal worth the symptoms for the moment.

I had my GB removed about 9.5 years ago and I still deal with the bile induced D.

For that more fiber does help though.

take care,
Bill

Where is your burning and where are your spasms?? I had 2 ultrasounds, 2 hida scans and an mri that were all normal and after a year and a half of symptoms i almost died before they got it out. The ER kept sending me home.

The burning and spasms were basically from the esophagus down. The librax has done very well with both so far. And I also take pantoprazole aka protonix at 40 mgs 1 x daily.

How about your throat? Do you have LPR or Gerd?
