I recently had my gallbladder removed after months of being sick. Before having it removed I spent 8 months with constant nausea, tried anti-nausea pills, but vomitting and nausea persisted. After seeing a couple different doctors (the first few refused to do more than give me multiple pregnancy tests, which I was NOT pregnant) I finally had a doctor recommend having a "HIDA" scan (i don't know if that's the actual name) and it turned out my gallbladder was working in the low 30% range (and I'm only 20) I met with a surgeon and we decided to remove it. It has been 5 weeks, after 2 weeks I started to feel quite better as far as nausea and vomitting were concnered, but my pain and nausea came back by week 3. I now feel almost as poor as I did before the surgery. I had an abdominal x-ray that looked okay, and am awaiting an ultrasound. I have to wait a few more months to get into a specialist. I am an athlete and am having a lot of trouble, the pain in my abdomin gets very intense, running is almost out of the question. I don't know what to do, I currently am on Phenergan and still experience nausea, vomitting, mild to extreme abdominal pain and exhaustion. I do not know if the exhaustion has something to do with whatever is making me sick, or a result of the other symptoms on my body. I just wondered if anyone had any kind of ideas?

No constipation, if anything completely the opposite, but completely bloated all the time! No idea about gluten products, and the doctors have drawn blood but do not know what they have tested for.
