Had ERCP scope done before removing Gall bladder. Feel awful and have metallic taste. Suggestions?

I am one week out from having my gallbladder removed. I also had the ERCP scope to remove stones before surgery. I feel awful. Eating just makes me feel worse - everything tastes very metallic or something. I have had a craving for bananas which I never used to eat. Is there something I can do to feel better or am I just being hard on myself and need to give it time. I am 48 and overall am in VERY good health. I eat a very clean diet and exercise.

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
This is occasioaly experienced and you should be patient for few more months till your digestion adapt. Also, there can be postcholecystectomy syndrome which is rare complication of surgery,but there is no specific treatment necessary at this point. Just watch foryour diet,avoid alcohol,fat food and smoking. Eat more frequently but smaller meals.
Wish you good health. Regards
