Non-functioning gall bladder removed. Fatigue and nausea. Any natural supplements?

Hi, I had my non-functioning gallbladder (HYDA scan=8%) removed laparoscopically last June(2012). I am continuing to have nausea and some right abdominal pain. Unable to exercise due to fatigue and nausea. Are there any natural supplements I can take to make this right and not cause future digestion problems. I realize now, most diseases are due to inflammation...what can I do/take to decrease the inflammation in my stomach? I drink warm ginger water, which seems to help some and go to acupuncture(I take Bao He Wan) but does not seem to be working this time. Thank you for your help!

thanks for writing in.
HIDA scan is not the investigation for proving a non functioning gall bladder. The symptoms which you have descibed are related to a post cholecystectomy syndrome. You need to reduce the intake of fatty foods as well as start bile acid supplements.
Before you can start the treatment it would be advisable to get aimaging of the biliary tree in the form of a MRCP to ensure normalcy of the biliary passages.
I hope this answers your querry.
