I had my gallbladder taken out in October of 2003. I regret the decision to this day....I was better for about 8 months and am now so nauseated everyday I'm truly losing the will to live. I've been to 2 major medical centers in Chicago and all the doctors just think I'm making it up. I burp about 100-200 times a day and I don't even drink pop or anything other than tea and water. I have had just about every test in the world done (13 Barium CT scans, Ultrasounds, Gastric emptying, esophageal manometry, upper gi xrays, lower gi xrays). I have started acupuncture for this and it helps somewhat, but I can't bear the thought of going through the rest of my life feeling like I should carry a trash can with me everywhere I go. If anyone has any suggestions PLEASE let me know. My GI doctor basically told me a couple weeks ago that I have gone through every antinausea/gerd medication out there and there is nothing else he can do. Please help.
