Dear probably your suffering from post cholinergic syndrome. as you told you just undergone cholecystectomy. But dumping syndrome seen in gastrectomy,gastric bypass,esophagectomy etc..

it is seen 5-40% of patients with post cholecystectomy patients.

Symptoms of postcholecystectomy syndrome may include:

Dyspepsia, nausea, and vomiting.
Flatulence, bloating, and diarrhea.
