hi and welcome to healthcare magic.....
this type of dyspepsia is common after gall bladder surgery .....and usually difficult to treat.....
and in many cases it passed away by itself with time.....
the recommended treatment is omeprazole 40 mg OD before meal and tab itopride 50 mg Three times aday before meal...this treatment should be taken for 3 months.....
hope you will be better soon....
