Since I had my gall bladder removed several years ago, I've experienced maybe half a dozen "attacks": excruciating pain in the stomach/liver area that lasts for about 15-20 minutes then goes away. I have associated these with having eaten a meal with more fat than I normally ingest (very little) accompanied by a couple of glasses of wine. Anyone know if this is my liver saying, "Knock it off"? Anything to take during one of these attacks?

  • Might be GERD/hiatal hernia, also. Wine is very acidic, and fatty foods realy make my GERD act up. You might want to have it checked out - a scope. I was diagnosed with Barret's Esophagus, a precancerous condition, and never thought much about my symptoms. If it is GERD, it can be controlled pretty well with medication (Prilosec) and diet.
