Gall bladder removed, sweat and pain in ribs and lower back pain. What can be done to treat the ribs pain?

I had my gall bladder removed 2 years ago. I couldn t eat anything with any amount of fat for 12 months or I would sweat and shake and experienced pain in my ribs and lower back (both sides) after I ate. Slowly I have improved and can now eat a reasonable diet but still suffer permenant pain in my back/lower ribs area. I live permanantely feeling that I have had the shit kicked out of my ribs and they are extremely bruised. Have no idea what I can do about this? 2 years in pain is getting pretty hard to tolerate and I am tough as boots!

Hi welcome to HCMForum. so far my knowledge is concerned a healthy individual with only gall stones dont have any such effects.
you must be having gastritis fatty infiltration hepatitis or cirhosis of liver besides gallstones.there could be some error in the surgery.
I advise you to consult a gastroenterologist for diagnosis. you may have to get the u.s.scaning gastroscopy SGPT SGOT HBSAg
serum bilirubin for confermation of the diagnosis. in the mean while your doctor will priscribe you enzyme preparations with bile
