I have had my gallbladder out for 5 years now and I feel the same way as hope4me. No it does not get better that is just a doctor talking. No one knows how this feels until they have been threw it. You cannot live a normal life. I would like to sue that doctore butt off for not telling me I would feel this way for the rest of my life. And yeah I talked to a different doctor and he said this will be this way for the rest of my life.
