I had my gall bladder removed 3 years ago, at first all my problems seemed to disappear. Now i have noticed that my stomache is swelling up like i am pregnant and i am suffering from pain in my right side under my ribs. I have been advised that i might have stones in my bile duct and may require an ERPC, [tube down throat to take stones from bile duct]. I have told my doctor about the bloating, and he also says this is quite common with gall bladder problems.
