I had my gallbladder removed in Feb 09. Since that time, I have had a huge stomach. I am about 40 lbs overweight, however, I was the same weight before surgery. Now my stomach looks twice as big. I do look about 7 or 8 mos pregnant. I have often wondered if anyone else has had this problem. I decided to go online today and try to find out. Apparently this is a common issue??? I eat red meat at least twice a week. I never thought that that could be the problem. Sometimes I am more bloated than others. I am going to try to really watch what I eat and how it affects me. If anyone has any further info, please post!
