“I had my GB removed on feb 09. They said that it was urgent so I did it. I too have problems with my BM and can not for the life of me lose weight. I am tired all the time, have strong back pain, hormones are out of control, and the opening of my stomach hurts when I eat. Why the heck didn’t the doctors warn me about the possible side effects?? I have been back and forth to these doctors and no one has correlated my symptoms to my GB removal. >;) I was better off having my GB and just watching what I ate. At least, I did not have a nasty gut that weighs me down physically and emotionally :'( Thanks to all of these posts, I know that I am not alone and that it is not my fault.
