I had my gallbladder removed nearly 2years ago. for the past year I have had constant pain in the right flank and below the sternum. The conclusion is that these are adhesions and nerve damage. its the lack of treatment that is frustrating and no cohesive approach from doctors. reading these posts at least I know I’m not crazy or imagining it all. there is a problem with being abandoned after operations, so post operative problems are not being treated seriously by the medical profession.
