I had my gallbladder removed 1 year ago and now have occassional pain on my right side. I sometimes feel as though my liver is cramping and at time feels as if it stiffens up momentarily then relaxes almost like a charly horse type feeling. Is there any relationship between the gallbladder being removed and what I am experiencing or could this be some other problem
Hi, I don't know that my input will help any at all...but I had my gallbladder removed on March 31st, 2009. It only has been a couple of months and yes on occasion I get these weird feelings as you mentioned. But I have been back to my doctor and for now this is normal, at least that is what he said. I just find them annoying is all. No other complications from the surgery to complain about. Just happy the pain is gone. : ) I would certainly follow up and just talk to your doctor about it. The one thing I have noticed is that when I feel those same feelings it is because I didn't eat properly. Perhaps that has nothing to do with it all, but that is what causes mine to act up like that.
