Removed gall bladder, persistent pain, stool smelling chemicals. Cure for symptoms?

I had my gall bladder removed but still getting pain between my shoulder blades and under ribs right side, my stool also smells lkke chemicals. Im scared as what is causing these persistent symptoms and not sure how to ease the pain. Eating dairy or chocolate makes the pain worse and I am reliant on prune juice to have a bowel movement . Please advise.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Since your gall bladder was removed, there wont be any storage of bile that to be released with food. So this may cause you stool which smells like chemicals.
But for pain you need to get done USG abdomen and pelvis, stool examination with LFT once to know if any problem there.
Dairy products and chocolate contain more of oil and fat. So there wont be adequate bile released for its digestion and hence you may be getting this discomfort.
For pain now you can take NSAID with anti spasmodic drug and drink plenty of water. Consult your doctor for further management. Hope I answered your question.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
