Hello,
At first I would suggest you nevet to skip meals.
With a history of cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal) 3 years back and suddenly having bloating and pain, you must get yourself evaluated for biliary obstruction possibly due to common bile duct stones, which needs to be ruled out firstly. Then other causes like infection need to be suspected. Please consult your surgeon and get blood test and ultrasound abdomen done.
Hope this helps.

I have no gallbladder and haven t for years. recently I have had a ruptured disk and will be having surgery. in the mean time the doctor prescribed morphine which I could not take due to sick stomach it caused. he changed me to diluadid and it also is making me vomit green bile colored emesis. I have vomited more than6 times and cannot keep even clear liquids down. I have not drank water because it nauseates me. the green bile is scaring me and I don t know if this is a serious problem that I am ignoring. note I had bowel resection 10 yrs ago and have been having constant runny stools. this is not acute it is chronic since resection. I do not feel I am obstructed but the abd pain is almost not tolerable.

I have gallbladder stones, can they be the problem I m having that every few minutes I feel like I have to pee. When I do pee, very little is coming out. In the mornings I pee like normal, like nothing is wrong and then it starts. It doesn t burn when I go. Sometimes when I wipe there is pink on the toilet paper. The urine looks normal in the bowl. No odor. I have no pain anywhere. What can this be? Can it be related to premenopausal as well?
