    Gallbladder removed, dull ache, bloating and constipation

    Hi everyone,

    I had my gallbladder removed 2 and a half months ago. For most of that time since then I have felt fine. Over the past week I tried to reintroduce foods that have caused me to feel bunged up before to see if my body could now cope with them better since the gallbladder is gone. Well it appears not!

    The culprits that I can't seem to digest properly are things like bread, pasta, cereal, dough etc. It seems my body cannot break it down properly. Over the past week (I ate quite a lot of cereal and bread for four days) I have felt bloated and my side twinges and there is a constant dull ache. I got tested for celiac before they realised it was my gallbladder but that came back negative.

    I hear alot about people saying excess fat aggrevates them (i've cut that down a lot but doesn't seem to be much of a problem) and they get lots of diarhear, but i'm the opposite.

    I will stear clear from these foods, but it's a pain because most other food doesn't fill you up as much...

    Do others suffer with this because of they had their gallbladder removed? And how long do the side effects wear off? I am usually constipated but have been taking ox bile for a while now and it really helps (but not when eating things mentioned above).

    OK, your gallbladder's only function is to help digest fat. So the lack of a gb is most likely not the cause as it would be causing diarrhea not constipation. Perhaps you just have too much fiber in your diet?

    It's probably the gas they inflate you with that hasn't dissipated yet. Walk as much as you can. And I'd lay off the bacon for a couple more weeks.
