Gallbladder Surgery 4 weeks later.
- I had my gallbladder removed 4 weeks ago Aug 2013. I am only 24. I was the youngest patient that my surgeon had done this procedure on. It has been 4 weeks since my surgery. My bellybutton has been leaking a yellow colored fluid. I called my doctor a week ago and they gave me antibiotics saying that I had an infection and that it is not normal to have the belly button leak fluid. My bellybutton is now bleeding. I am seeing my doctor in 3 days. Did anyone else experience this?

- I had my gallbladder removed July 31, 2013. If you feel like you are still not feeling well, and having gallbladder like attacks, get the doctor to check on your liver blood levels (increased bilirubin, increased alkaline phosphatase, increase liver enzymes) as there may be some left over stones that have blocked one of your bile ducts. Or your body is still producing crystallized bile. Especially if you are still having pains, nausea and/or jaundice. Also, check out the gluten-intolerance, IBS, and things of that nature. There is no reason you should continue to be in pain. Someone, somewhere will have answers. Hope you all feel better soon or find some way of getting relief.
- I had my gallbladder removed Aug of 2010. But my story starts in Jan of 2010. I was having chest pains not thinking much just thought it was my asthma flared because I do work outside and thought cold air was doing it. this kept up for a while then March I started noticing I wasn't able to eat very well and chest pain got worse. I told my husband what was going on so the road to my nightmare started. I go to Patient First couldn't find anything wrong got sent home. so I went on till June losing weight and barely eating I go to the ER still nothing. So I got a gi doctor on my own. first few test showed nothing. Finally a hyda scan showed my gallbladder was working at a three out of 30% so after that more test my last test upper gi scooped, next day rush to hospital could barely move hold water in if I ate it went right through me I had surgery done I had diseased gallbladder I had four holes and rope scar in center of chest I lost 50 pounds and to this day I'm still sick I'm only 33.

- I had my Galbladder out in July of 2009. I started out feeling great then about 6 months after I started to not staying out of the bathroom when I ate certain things. It has gotten so bad now everything I eat hurts my stomach, I am constantly in the bathroom, and I get really nauseated. I live off Imodium to ease the signs and pain but know that's not good for me either. HELP!

- I had my gallbladder removed 8 years ago and have had pain every since. I am eating a very low fat high fiber diet and it helps some but not always. Nothing helps actually. I don't think I want anymore surgery of any kind because it will likely make it worst. I am sure I have SOD because I have had occassional mildly liver enzymes. Living with this chronic pain is exhausting. I would love help/cure but naturally; no heavy drugs/surgeries medicine. It only makes everything worst for me at least.

- i had my gal bladder removed two weeks ago. i have had no pain or problem since. i only suffer from constipation a bit. i had stones in the duct and the doctor had all the stones removed before the surgery i think why some of you are still suffering with pain is because they did not clean out the duct if they had then you will be fine. my operation was done at north york general hosp.. by a very good surgeon.

- I have written on here before. My heading was called "Dark Nightmare". I had my surgery to remove GB 1/8/2013. All was fine, until umbilical hernia came through belly button surgical site in mid-March. Surgery to repair that on 3/29/2013. But here is the life altering status. Today is 9/2/2013 and since March, I have been nauseated and sick every day. Chest pain every day. Stabbing pains every day. I now have esophogial spasms that cause me to "want" to throw up too. I need help. I did find a sure way to stop diarrhea, Cholestrymine. It more than stopped it. I had to only take a 1/4 dose to make it work. But I need your help, anyone, everyone...What in the world can I do to stop this nausea and vomiting. My life has been shut completely down for a little over 5 months now. Do not feel well enough for long enough to do much of anything. Please, I pray for your help. Prayer are also appreciated. Please help.
Problem after gall bladder surgery
- My father had the gallbladder surgery 2 yrs ago after being diagnosed with the gall stones. Now even after the surgery he is facing the complications of indigestion and frequent jaundice (once or twice a year). Before the surgery he had gone through gall bladder infection and had performed ERCP as well. We are worried about his health. Can you help us? What might be the cause of jaundice?

After Gallblader Removal
- Three years ago I figured out I had gallstones after I had an attack and went to the hospital in the middle of the night. The doctors suggested that I have to remove it so I did. After the surgery I was eating anything I want. I was not watching my diet at all. I was not avoiding any type of food. I was OK for the first year but then I figured out that I have indigestion problems and it was becoming worst by time I never liked to take OTC laxative medicines. I started to watch my diet and cooked for myself. I figured out that I am lactose intolerant and can't eat spices nor tomato sauces. I cut off cheese, tomato sauces, spices, junk food fat food and I only eat healthy home cooked food. I do suffer from lot of gas and constipation I spent too much time in the bathroom. It got me really stressed out and worry if I have any type of problems with my intestines. My bowel movement fluctuates sometimes constipations and other times diarrhea. I do not know if I should seek a doctor.
gallbladder removed six years ago
- I had to get my bladder removed because of the stones. When I would drive around a curve, I could feel the sack move over, so I was scared that if I didn't have it removed it could possibly rupture, and I am sure that would cause death. I feel that there is no win situation when dealing with the gallbladder situation. I have nausea almost constantly now. The doctors will not tell you anything even about what not to eat. You mostly have to do your own research on this subject. When I first had this surgery done, I had to be careful where and when I ate food of any kind. I needed to be seated close to the restroom whenever I ate any food.

- I just had my gall bladder out because it was full of stones and causing me so much pain. Now I have lower pain in my bowels every time I eat something until I go to the toilet which is becoming every half an hour and its basically ongoing diarrhoea it's not fair :(....

- I am a 15 year old teen. I had my gallbladder removed because of 30 gallstones. It has been almost a year and I am still having the sharp knife stabbing pains that I had before I had my operation. I have the pains at least 4 times a day.

- I had my GB removed on 6th August. I have pains on the same area where the bladder was. I am also having the frequent bathroom trips and my stools are at times yellow. I drink lots of vegetable juices e.g. beet, celery and carrot. I also tried a spinach smoothy. When I eat fatty foods the fat comes out undigested. How long does the postoperative healing process take? I feel tired, listless and have insomnia.

- Surgery 7/18. ER 7/18 because i couldnt breath and sent home with pain meds. ER 7/24 vomiting and my stomach was really distended. Issue with bile duct. 2 days after being in the hospital i ended up on the cardiac floor because my heart was racing. Stayed there the whole time. i had surgery to put a stint in. Then i got a drain on my side. After a week they put a bigger stint in because I was still draining a lot. I was in the hospital for 2 weeks. After a week the drain was practically empty. This past Monday it came out. Next Friday my stint comes out. I can't wait! They said I should feel better instantly. I am sick of gas and bowel movements hurting (stabbing pain in lower abs) and being nauseous. I am also sick of taking pills. I hate pills but I know I need them. I am already eating what I want. No issues. I lost 20lbs (I was 20lbs over weight). This is the scariest hardest longest issue I have ever dealt with. Positive thoughts and prayers welcome for my upcoming surgery!
