I had my gallbladder removed over a year ago. For a while I could eat almost anything and it wouldn't bother me.
About 4 months later I started feeling bloaty and burpy after I eat. Seems to be getting worse. I have discomfort in my upper right just under my ribs, just right of center. if I don't eat for several hours after I get up I have these same symptoms. Feel like I might just explode one day. PLEASE HELP
Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possible causes that may need to be considered include fat malsorption secondary to GB removal, GI infections/ inflammations, GERD, gastric erosions/ ulcers, GI motility issues, hormonal/ endocrine causes etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
