I am suffering from intense gas, bloating ,chest pain after gallbladder removal

Hi, I had my Gallbladder removed about 1 year ago and every few months I ll have a few weeks of intense gas, bloating , chest pain and what feels like tension headaches. I take Gas-X before I eat to try and help with the gas and Excedrin for the head pain, is this just due to not having my Gallbladder?

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
After the gall bladder is removed, the bile juices which are essential for oily food digestion are not released in bulk after every meal as happens normally. So, there is the problem of indigestion and gas after taking an oily meal.You will have to take these medicines life long.
