My gallbladder was removed in August of 2008. There was a “honeymoon period” during which I felt great, was at my perfect weight of 135, then I was hospitalized with pancreatitis, then I began to bloat and gain belly weight (never had a weight issue in my life… ) and last year I was finally diagnosed with gastroparesis. I take Reglan without too many unwanted side effects. Bloating, nausea, vomiting, constipation and weight gain in my upper abdomen are my chief complaints. Oh, and I now weigh over 175 pounds. This is a disgusting disorder. I may visit Dr. Snape, a motility specialist at UCSF, if things do not improve. I’ve spent 5 years trying to figure out what is going on. I have a severe gastric emptying issue. Food just stays stuck in my gut forever. I’d love to hear from others, and gain suggestions on what the heck I can eat without blowing up like Humpty Dumpty. I’m simply appalled, listless, tired all the time, and am now on disability. I teach English online to make ends meet. My life has become very burdensome, and my body image is in the trash can. I’d been a fit athlete/dancer all my life until my gallbladder was removed. For a while I took bile salts and I wonder if anyone has any info/advice on supplements, including bile salts. I must see a nutritionist, I cannot live like this. Love and light to my fellow sufferers. ~ Beth
