Carbon Dioxide Trapped in Me For Months after Surgery

Ever since my Gallbladder removal My Gallbladder pains have been gone, Duh!

However new symptoms have arouse, After getting a few more tests everything keeps coming back negative.

I'm following the advice of a Doctor on this forum and getting a few more things looked at, as well as that My Mum who is a Nurse warned me she was sore for up to a year after her Gallbladder removal due to Carbon Dioxide being trapped in her system.

Is it actually possible 2 months post op to have Carbon Dioxide still in me?

A Month ago I had lung scan and It was revealed I had carbon dioxide pockets in my lungs, they found it very strange.

2 Months on I've got a funny pain that travels in my body, its usually in my right lung, and now its in my stomach as I type this.

Tomorrow it will be in my shoulder or back, then back in my chest.

I actually feel like I've got one of those scarab beetles from the mummy crawling around inside of me lol.

Anyone else had similar problems?
