I have minimal biliary dyskinesia. ERCP ejection fraction was 34%. I have also had the palpitations occur after eating. Usually when bending or moving a certain way the palpitations will start. I also had an upper endoscopy...a nodule was found in the duodenum, this was performed on the 23rd of July. I do not know the biopsy results yet. But the Dr. said that cannot be the cause of my pain and asked again if I wanted the surgical removal for my gallbladder. So, if you DO have your gallbladder removed, please let me know how you fare. I am not convinced that is the cause of MY pain. I have also had acute pancreatitis. Maybe you should ask for an ERCP before you have any surgeries.
For people who have palpitations after your gallbladder removal:
#1, I am not a doctor; I am just someone who had these issues for years. I saw cardiologists, had panic attacks was diagnosed with anxiety disorder treated with Xanax.
#2 How I would feel: I would almost pass out, my heart would race or skip beats. I thought I would die when I was grocery shopping, driving etc. After I would eat, I would really feel bad, almost passing out. My best friend told me that I should try a digestive enzyme because it might be my gallbladder. Plus I read in the Wall Street Journal that our gut was VERY much in charge of our entire body.
#3 So I went to Walgreens (because it was right next to Starbucks ) to see if I could find a digestive enzyme. The first thing I saw was gas pills that were a food enzyme supplement. The main ingredient was Alpha-Galactosidase enzyme 600GALU. Yeah, don’t try to pronounce it. I took one of these pills prior to every meal and it made a HUGE difference!!! My palpitations are completely gone. No longer feeling sick.
#4 Once again, I am not a doctor, only someone who has been through this. I made a promise to God, that if it cured me I would post it everywhere. Ask your doctor about that enzyme prior to using. As you can see, I don’t work for any company trying to sell something because you can get that enzyme in a plethora of different medications or vitamins. I truly just chose the cheapest generic version I found and it works wonderful!!!!!!
#5 Your not crazy!!!! Your not having panic attacks!!!! (most likely) Your not weak!!!!!! You just need help in your gut!
I hope this helps you!!
so did you have gallstones??
