Why do I experience pain while drinking and eating after gallbladder removal?
Hello, I had my gallbladder removed 2 months ago. up until recently I could eat and drink like normal without any problems. But recently I have been getting pain when I drink water or eat. I am also burping constantly and feel full after only eating a small amount of food. Does anyone else have these symptoms? Can you please help me with this? Is it common? How long will it take? Do I need to worry? I am 38 years old male.
@ronn-james Hello, it might because of your diet but I will recommend you to see a doctor. High-fat and certain high-fiber foods tend to be the most difficult ones to digest in the days and weeks following gallbladder removal. As a result, you may experience these symptoms: Abdominal pain after eating. After surgery, your liver will still make enough bile, but you might have difficulty processing fatty foods at least for a while. More than half of patients who have their gallbladder removed have trouble digesting fat. Avoid fried foods, high-fat foods, foods with strong odors, and gas-causing foods. Eating the wrong food after gallbladder surgery can induce pain, bloating, and diarrhea. Slowly add small amounts of foods back into your diet. Thanks!
