“This is my first time on this site and while reading yours and Debbie’s post, I thought it sounded alot like what is going on with me. I know its been a few months since your post, but I was hoping that maybe you found some answers. What types of foods make you sick? Did you have an ERCP test? I was getting sick a month after my gallbladder surgery and it was because of open lesions at the bottom of my esophagus. They gave me a medication that acted like a liquid bandaid, so that I could eat and my esophagus could heal. I had my gallbladder out 3 years ago and havent been right since. I have tenderness and pressure at the bottom of my esophagus. I get sick from eating raw fruits and vegetables. Especially on an empty stomach. I have found over the years that eating canned fruits and cooked vegatables in small amounts and after you have food in your stomach seems to help. I was diagnosed with GERD and take nexium but still no explanation why I still am getting sick from the foods. I am now in the process of more tests. What I was told so far is that some of the pain is coming from the top incision and when you eat gassy foods, your stomach bloats and puts pressure at the point of incision and causes pain. Not sure yet why the foods are causing problems, they are steering towards bile duct scarring.

Thanks for listening and hope that you found some relief. Lisa
