General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi ! Good morining. I am Dr Shareef, a general surgeon answering your query.
If I were your doctor, I would advise you for an ultrasound scan/CT scan of your abdomen to rule out any collection in the sub hepatic/ sub diaphragmatic area specially with a history of injury to the gall bladder. Till then, I would like you to take a proton pump inhibitor, a prokinetic agent, and a probiotic drug. Further management will depend on the investigation findings.

Thank you for using healthcaremagic for your health problems. Wishing you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
