Pain After Gall Bladder Removal

Guest Author - Arrow Durfee

Gall bladder problems can be complex and they call about 500,000 people to the operating room table each year with anticipation of pain relief following the surgery as well as better digestion and enjoyment of meals. But sometimes things don’t get better after the surgery, they get worse. This article will explore two of the reasons why.

Generally there are three reasons for gallbladder surgery. The patient has complaints of right sided abdominal pain either associate with a meal or even long after eating. The pain can be debilitating. The causes can be an excess of gall stones that are inhibiting the function of the gallbladder or flow of bile, or the gall bladder is infected or inflamed and is at risk for rupture.

Diagnostic tests used could be any of the following, sonogram, MRI, CT scan of the gallbladder or liver or both, billiary scan, blood work.

So now you find that after that terribly needed gallbladder surgery you are still having digestive difficulties. Gas, bloating, indigestion, nausea, reflux, even abdominal pain. What could have gone wrong and what to you need to do get past this?

When my husband had gall bladder surgery I was amazed how diet was never mentioned either preoperatively or even more important postoperatively. When it comes to digestion and the livers capacity for doing it right diet rules. All gall bladder patients should have diet consultations post surgery to keep them on tract and to prevent further problems, problems that can feel just like their bad gall bladder had never been removed.

One of the most common problems post gall bladder removal is indigestion caused from too little bile being secreted into the food chime in the stomach. Since the gall bladder stores bile specifically for the immediate use towards digestion of incoming food its removal is a big issue for some people. Sometimes the liver just cannot get the required bile into the stomach fast enough to get the job done correctly. The gall bladder is sorely missed for its capacity to deliver bile immediately and sufficiently.

The symptoms are abdominal pain associated with a meal, gas, bloating, acid reflux and possibly even nausea and vomiting. What is often required is more bile during the actual meal. Since the liver cannot deliver this bile fast enough bile salt supplements will be required to be taken with meals. The dosage will depend on the person and only experimentation will tell you how many to take and of course this may vary with the product that you choose.

Bile is a very important component not just for digestion but for the whole body. It components nourish the blood and……………..

If too much bile is taken in a supplement form or if the liver secrets too much bile, which is normally regulated by the gall bladder, dumping syndrome may occur. Dumping syndrome occurs right after eating or within an hour or two, where one has to run to the bathroom for an explosive bowel movement. When the cause of the condition is from the liver dumping bile to quickly the treatment is difficult and some people find no effective management except for adhering to a low fat diet to keep the liver from being stimulated to dump. Hydrogenated oils and saturated fats can be particularly stimulating and contribute to this issue. You will want to select high quality fats such as olive oil and grape seed oil. Fats from fish will be superior to fats from red meat.

Taking too many bile supplements can cause you to dump also. Simply reduce the dosage and things will even out. Return to one pill and move up gradually. You may also learn over time what kind of meals require more pills over other types of meals. High fat large meals will require more supplementation

The gall bladder flush is controversial but in my experience it is a real and valid treatment to liver and gall bladder issues. It would be my first choice for treatment if gall bladder issues started to arise. If you wait too long and the gall bladder is very congested with stones the flushes may be more difficult to accomplish positive results with. If there is a history of gallbladder problems in your family you should consider doing the flushes long before you actually develop symptoms to prevent developing the need for a surgery. For most people a yearly or biannual flush is sufficient for prevention measures. If you choose to do a gall bladder flush I strongly recommend that you use a recipe that contains magnesium sulfate which will facilitate the passage of stones through the bile duct.

If you have developed gall bladder pain that is significant it is important to determine if you have an infected gall bladder before you try a flush. Generally an infected or severely inflamed bladder can be diagnosed with blood work and or a CT scan. Stones in and of themselves are not an absolute cause for removal. They and the symptoms of gall bladder pain can be managed with diet and if stones alone are found it may be a viable option for you to manage your condition with diet and bypass the surgery. A clean healthy diet can often relieve the pain and a series of gall bladder flushes may eliminate some of the stones. If you do a gall bladder flush be sure to select one that includes magnesium sulfate in the protocol.

Below you will find links to bile supplements that may be helpful. I am partial to Standard Process for this particular product. You will also find a link to a good liver flush prtocol.
