Sore stomach, pain in pancreas area. Recovered from pancreatitis and gallbladder removed. Suggestion?

I have just recovered from pancreatitus and had my gallbladder removed just in case that was the problem. Its been about 3 weeks and about 3 days ago I got a sour stomach like I had never had before. I was miserable for those entire 3 days until I threw up then I was completely fine except that I have been having strong pains in my pancreas area ever since I went back to my regular diet about 5 days after I left the hospital and I am worried it may be coming back. Any ideas as to whether the sour stomach has anything to do with my pancreas and if the pancreatitus may be coming back?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
PAncreatitis is most commonly caused by gallbladder stones and alcohol abuse. Since you removed gallbladder possibility of pancraetits is less now,but possible. YOushould avoid alcohol, fats and abudant meals. After cholecystectomy postcholecystectomy syndrome may occur which goes with your symotms,but also any kind of gastritis can cause it as well. 1-2 months are needed till your digestion balance and you can expect improvment then. If your symotms persist you should do gastroscopy to evaluated all this. If you have paon that radiate to back it can be pancreatiti sagain, and visit hospital if you feel it that way.
Wish you good health.
