Re: Burning Stomach
I really think you need another workup. Blood work, endoscopy at least. You know that your gall bladder is not function perfectly, so removing it might stop the pain, but you can never be sure. If you remove the gall bladder and still have pain, you certainly have eliminated one possibility. Most people do pretty well without their gall bladder. You might experiment with your diet. If you drink alcohol, stop for a few days and see how you feel. If you drink coffee or tea, or chocolate (caffeine) same thing, stop for a few days and see how you are doing. If you normally eat a high fat diet, try going low/no fat for a few days, see what happens. Is there anything you eat or drink that makes it feel better? Does a glass of milk stop the pain or make it worse? Don't be afraid to repeat the endoscopy, knowledge is power.
