Has anyone else continued to have digestive problems after gallbladder removal. Had mine out 6/98 and still have most of the same symptoms as before. Only diagnosis I've been given is IBS/stress. I don't think that is the whole problem, though I do think that plays some role. My biggest symptom is pain in the upper right quadrant where gb was. I have had numerous tests...upper GI, ultrasound, colonoscopy, endoscopy, bloodwork on liver...all normal, with the exception of mild reflux. The symptoms I have come and go. I can have several good weeks, but I still can't eat Mexican, pizza, fried fish, etc. without major pain for several days afterward. Very frustrated. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
