“Hello there,

I know this is an old thread but was hoping someone would be of some help. I had my gallbladder out a month ago. I seem to be healing okay and the gallbladder pain is gone so far. (knocking on wood). 4 days after the surgery, I experinced this intense burning throughout my whole belly area. It felt like someone poured acid in me. I have had 24/7 acid/bile? reflux, burning, sore throat, burning belly, mouth burns, everything burns. Drs. told me to try all the antacids, PPI’s etc. nothing really seems to help. I read in this thread that pysillium helps the diarrhea (which I’ve only had a couple bouts of so far). I would say I tend to now be more constipated. I’m wondering if it would also help soak up the bile in the belly? Any thoughts or suggestions? I see the GI dr again on Tues.

I was told this was supposed to be an easy surgery and life would go on. I wish I had not had the surgery.
