I had my GB removed 5 years ago after experiencing systematically increasing nausea for about 10 months prior to the operation. Post op, I was nauseated constantly for 2 years and then things finally started to get better. Over the next 2 years the nausea slowly dissipated to a frequency of several times a week for several hours at a time. In the last year, the nausea is much less frequent, but I still have bouts that sometimes last for days. So much for an easy surgery and recovery. I’ve read that about 2% of people suffer from prolonged or permanent symptoms. I’ve been test thoroughly and the test are all normal. I’m hoping that as time goes on it will become less of an issue.
