I am hoping that someone can help. I had my gallbladder removed almost two years ago. My experience was great, other than than the occasional bouts of the runs. However, mainly in wee hours of the morning, I experience an intense burning in the area where my gall bladder was removed. This burning is so intense that it causes me to curl into a ball. I have found that it takes about a half an hour and several glasses of water to get rid of the pain. Has anyone else experienced this and does anyone know what causes it? Please help!
