Hello c. Welcome to healthcaremagic.com. There are many causes of epigastric pain
, but due to your symptoms, which appear to be similar to gallbladder-related pain, I am going to take this answer in that direction. If you had your gallbladder removed due to gallstones, there may be a retained gallstone that can cause symptoms that make you think you have a gallbladder again. This would be the first route that I would investigate if you were walking into my office with this complaint. I would advise that you need to talk to your physician and both of you need to decide further steps to be taken.
I want you to keep a journal of the foods eaten, the time of the attack related to food intake, record any foods that seem to make the attacks worse, and make note of any other associated symptoms like heartburn
. Take this journal with you to your physician when you see them. I hope that this helps.
Be well, Dr. Kimberly
