I had my gallbladder removed 5 years, after some serious episodes of pain from stones. The pain between the shoulder blades and shortness of breath were unbearable so I was relieved that the doctor was confident that the op was the answer to my problem. Since the op I have experienced regular bouts of abdominal pain which is nearly as bad as the excrutiating pain of gallstones. Fortunately I don’t suffer with constant diahhorea, but I am very embarrassed with severe flatuence. Are these common symptons assosiated with gallbladder removal and is there any medication that can help.?
