In Reply to: Post gallbladder surgery problems posted by Melissa on April 28, 2000 at 22:07:31:

hello again....I am sorry you are having problems after your surgery. I have two thoughts on why this is happening to you. First, it could just be your body adjusting to not having a gallbladder. The gallbladder does most of the work in breaking down fat so your body has to get used to not having that organ to do that job. Does it get worse or more severe when you eat fatty foods? A lot of people whe have no gallbladders can't eat fatty foods. Also, there is something called dumping syndrome which is pretty much what you wrote about. It is something that some people get after having gallbladder surgery. My doctor never told me about it but if you go to this web site you can find lots of messages posted about it: http://www.medhelp.org/perl6/gastro/wwwboard.html
I hope this can help you...you should keep your doctor posted too in case he has other thoughs. Definately call him if you have pain similar to before your surgery. Good luck...hope I can help
