I had my GB removed 6 years ago and also didn’t receive any advice on after effects. I cannot eat fresh cream or spicy food, not that I miss them. I do suffer occasionally with loose bowel movement and a bubbly stomach and acheing in my back under the right shoulder blade. I still get heartburn and take ‘Tums’ or gaviscon for relief. Wind is another problem and can be embarassing at times. I thought I had a problem but it seems I am not the only one. The only consolation is I am not in the pain I was before. When I was younger I was told ‘it is in the family’ as a good many of my relations have have their GB removed or suffer similar problems or been taken to hospital with suspected heart attact! I have warned my children.
