Cool Chest pain following Gall Bladder surgery

I had my Gall bladder removed May 17th. It is now the end of June and I am still experiencing the following symptoms: gas, some fullness after eating, pains in my chest and sternum, sometimes radiating into my back. The sternum pain is worrisome as it feels like a heart attack. I know that it isn't because it has come and gone several times, but excruciating each time. I feel like it may be trapped gas. I have found that following a low-fat diet, avoiding sweets, and following the "Pain Free in a Day" guidelines, that my symptoms are diminished. The "Pain Free in a Day" program teaches you what foods to eat together so that gas and digestive problems are diminished or non-existant. Hopes this helps someone.

Re: Chest pain following Gall Bladder surgery

I had my gallbladder out October 26th of last year, and the chest pain was horrible after surgery. I can still eat certain foods or sometimes when I can't eat until later in the night I will wake up the next morning with aweful chest pain. It is few and far between with my chest pain. I just have to sit up straight or lean forward to get it to go away. I have found if I eat a piece of plain bread, it will help with that pain. It was explained to me that it was bile in my stomach causing the pain. I will try what you have said. Thanks for posting your experience.
