Abdominal pain, trying to gain weight. Had gall bladder removed

I am 5 6, I weigh 109. I have lost 19 lbs since July. I have been feeling pretty good except I somrtimes have some pain in my abdomen in the right side. I did have my gallbladder removed in July, but I have felt great since and process foods fine. I have been trying to gain and keep weight on by eating and even drinking protein weight gain shakes.

The not ability to gain weight has little to do with your gall bladder surgey. To gain weight you also need fat and carbs in your diet..protein skakes alone will not help. A good nutritionist can help you. You also need to hit the gym and lift a little weight... that can help gain mass with the protein shakes.

hope this helps
