I too have had my gallbladder removed exactly 2 years ago. I can say 2 months after having it removed, I still feel like I have stones. The same pain I get keeping me up crying at night. My thing is.. I have not been back to the doctor again after my surgery. I have spoken to a few people, and they tell me the pains never did go away for them either. Have you checked to see if you have an ulcer? or acid reflux disease? This is what I have been told may be the cause of my pains. But still feels like I have gallstones
