I had mine removed almost 2 years ago and I still have pain Sometimes severe, but I always have some kind of pain going on in my stomach area chest lower abdomin up into back towards the right shoulder, stomach just hurts al the time.I was told pains would go away and my body would learn that the gallbladder is no longer there.I can’t eat as much as i did before the surgery, but feel full and bloated all the time this sucks.It makes me worry all the time that something else is going on, I have had several panic attacks since my surgery, I have been back to the doctors and they have ran all the tests and say every thing checks out normal.They make feel like I’m nuts or something.
