I have flares of severe stomach issues

I am an 18 year old female, I had my gallbladder removed in August of 2009, from my understanding it had just shut down functioning at 0%. Since surgery I have had alot of issues. At first I thought it was the norm after that kind of surgery, you know the normal diharreah and nausea . However I am still sick, I have flares I guess you could say. I will be fine for a few days to a couple weeks, and then I am sick again. I will have severe diharrea where I am in the bathroom two or three times in an hour, and then it is solid the next. I will have sharp pain in my stomach that will double me over, I am nauseated all day every day. When I eat my stomach swells like I am pregnant , and it hurts. Other times my stomach will be so thin that my ribs stick out. In one week after surgery I lost 7 pounds. Before surgery I wieghed 125 I think, now I barely weigh 105, and it keeps falling off. I dont really have an appetite most days, but other days its like I cant stop eating . Please help me, I have spent over $1000 sice surgery on medication and doctors visits. I am broke. Please Help me

I have the same problems since my Gallbladder removal in 2004 It makes me have to miss work sometimes because I am stuck in the rest room for hours, I did change my eating habits drastically and I was starting to feel better "Just started about 1 1/2 ago with only one attach much better then almost everyday but yet again today I was doubled over in pain and stuck in the restroom for 3 hours. Has anyone else ever had this and if so and you went to your Dr. again what did they say? Or did you go to a different Dr.? What kind?

I know your post is almost a year old. Hopefully you're better by now. My mother had her Gallbladder removed and later develop stones in the common bile duct, the small tube that carries bile from the gallbladder to the intestine. So when I hear you discribe your symptoms I have to wonder if you may have a stone in the common bile duct.

I think you have to admit few facts and your expectations after the surgery are not met by your Doctors. It is their fault and your are suffereing. Please consult this Doctor here, Dr. H.S.Bharath online. He will help you with diet and counsel you how to go about from now.
