11 days after Gallbladder Removed, Feeling Some Unnerving Syptoms.

I had my gallbladder removed 11 days ago, August 21, 2018.

Several hours ago, my tummy started feeling bloated again, then some chest pains in some areas like under my right rib cage. I'm also feeling some pains on the sides of my tummy. My tummy also feels tight.

I found some blood from my stool, bright red, not a lot. My wife says she finds some blood from her stool from time to time too, she thought that may be normal. Several hours later, I had more bowel movement, but no blood this time. My stool is brown & yellow and mushy whenever I have bowel movements.

I am having some slight difficulty in breathing. My chest feels a little tight.

Although I am not experiencing any "screaming my lungs out in pain", at least not yet and I hope I won't get there.

Right now as of 4:16 AM EST, on Sept 1st, 2018

My BP reads 110 over 70, Heart Rate is 80

My SP02 reads 97%

My Temperature reads 97.8F

Am I going to be feeling bloated off and on for like the rest of my life and have some trouble breathing or at least feel some pressure when I breath and obviously feel it when I attempt to take deep breaths.

I never had any kind of surgery in my whole life, so this is something totally new to me,

Also, I have been diagnosed to have acid reflux.

I am taking Omeprazole 20 MG per day.

I used to take a CVS brand called "Acid Controller" but when my stool started to become funny, I stopped taking it as the label does have a black stool warning as well as chest pains, shortness of breath, etc.


I've also been chewing some Tums (1000mg Calcium Carbonate) whenever I felt gassy.

I've also still have the coughs and burps.

That's about all I can think of.

Any thoughts?
