I had my gallbladder removed on 12/31/09.  My gallbladder was chronically inflamed and had formed adhesions in the area.  I had no stones. I was pretty much healed at 3 weeks but would occasionally feel something, no pain, in the are  where my gallbladder used to be.  I didn't think anything of it since the surgeon said it took about 3 months to totally heal.  The last week it has gotten more constant and sometimes hurts.  It does not seem to matter what I eat or don't eat.  I'm not constipated and don't have diarrhea.  I'm going to make an appt tomorrow with my doctor but does anyone have any idea what's going on.  Its freaking me out.

Oh, that doesn't sound very comfortable or fun.

I saw the surgeon who took out my gallbladder and all I know so far is that it's not my liver.

Well, I guess it is good news that it is not your liver, at least.


Please keep us informed about what you find out.
