I have posted on the Gallbladder problems thread previously viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7143&start=30
but now I thought I'd post here. Having had my gallbladder out at the end of Feb, I have since had a bile leak, an ERCP to fit a stent, another ERCP to remove the stent after 3 weeks (early - should stay in for 4-6) due to severe nausea and vomiting - it was thought the stent was causing the problem. I was fine for about 4 days after the last ERCP but since the weekend the nausea has started again. It starts about an hour after I eat anything and sometimes I have to go to the bathroom to retch (which is better than it was as I was actually being sick when the stent was still in.) I am eating next to nothing and it's all low fat and healthy. I do get hungry after a certain amount of time but my appetite is greatly affected too. I feel quite full, even after small meals but I guess this is because I have been eating so little.
I have been getting a niggly ache in my right side which is puzzling, and think I woke up with heartburn type pain last night but it was obviously not too bad as I fell asleep again!
I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced any nausea after having their gallbladder out? Or whether the trauma of the bile leak could set off gastroparesis? It's nearly 5 weeks on now.
While it's good that I'm losing lots of weight, I want to enjoy food again, especially over the holiday............
Am phoning my gastro in the morning but I'm getting more and more worried about what is wrong, as are my family.
