I’m so glad I’ve found this thread! I had a feeling my doc thought I was crazy complaining about gallbladder attacks 4 years after I had my gallbladder removed. No matter what I eat, and I don’t eat fatty or spicy food for years now because all the stomach problems I had, as soon as 15 minutes later I’ll start getting dull and persistent pain. And it’s only worse at night when I don’t even eat anything, like around 4am I get woken up by sharp stabbing pains. Could it be that gallstones have formed in my remaining bile ducts? IS there anything other than painkillers to try to stop this pain?
