Had gallbladder removed. Suffering from PCS, nausea, vomiting, weight gain. Help?

Hi, I had my gallbladder removed two years ago and have been suffering from PCS since - pain, nausea and vomiting etc. I have modified my diet - I don t eat any meat now as that would cause too many issues (vomiting after eating) I don t cook with olive oil or eat eggs (as that caused diahrea straight after eating) and keep somewhat clear of heavy meals as digestion seems to be an issue. In terms of my diet I m happy now with how I manage it, what I have an issue with is the weight gain I m experiencing. Just to maintain my weight I can only eat 1300 calories a day PLUS exercise for 60 minuntes each day at high intensity interval and strength training, burning around 700 calories each workout. IF I do not exercise I can put on 3lbs in a week. I have increased by 2 dress sizes since the summer and I am so depressed it is really impacting my life. I just cannot bring me weight down and I cannot just stay where I am without running myself into the ground. My GP seems uninterested and cannot come up with any ideas. I have started taking natural remedies to help with digestion and aid the process of fats, carbs and protiens but it s not really helping. There have to be something someone can suggest or help me with because otherwise I just don t know what else I can do.

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

First important suggestion for you would be to take off stress and depression off life because of weight gain. stress and depression may still further add on to increase in weight.
I would suggest you
1. Brisk 30 minutes walk at a stretch atleast once a day
2. Diet modification-
3. Consumption of plenty of oral fluids
4. Restricting excessive salt in diet

I hope it helped

Take care
