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?
