I too had my gallbladder out LAP. in February this year and returned with a bile leak <48hrs later- a stent was put in and I went home 9 days later. I have had pain worse than b4 gallbladder surgery on and off since- now the pain is constant but all my blood tests have been "essentially" normal. I am so frustrated and feel so lousy- nauseous all the time, horrible abdominal pain that goes to my back and my sides-its awful. I am so frustrated I dont know where to go anymore-the ER thinks Im nuts and wants to blow me off everytime- good luck to u all-altho I feel awful and have empathy for you all, I am glad to c I am not the only one.
