I had an emergency cholecystectomy in Feb '10. I was diagnosed with a "porcelain gallbladder". Since the surgery I have had recurrent pain in the right upper quadrant with nausea and diarrhea. My liver enzymes (alt & ast) keep fluctuating, though not very high (below 100). I recently had an endoscopy which showed gastritis in the entire stomach. Biopsies were taken and h pylori was ruled out. Pancreatic enzymes were reported to be normal. I was misdiagnosed with Addison's disease 9 yrs. prior. I can tell you my symptoms appeared after I was taken of the prednisone therapy and have gradually gotten worse. I also had a l5-s1 fusion in June and was given prednisone for inflammation. Stomach issues cleared up for a short time. Any suggestions?
