Hi! I'm new to this so please be patient with me. My story begins with having my gallbladder removed 3 yrs. ago. Since having it out I have now begun to have an ache where the gallbladder used to be, explosive bowel movements. I have the ache off and on and it really starts acting up if i get physical like lifting, driving. Feels like something right under the bottom of my rib cage where the gallbladder was and my ribs can really get tender. One dr. said she thought it was scar tissue and gave me a scrip for neouratin and told me if it continues to make an appt. with a surgeon. She wouldn't do any other tests on me so then I went to another dr. and she ordered a complete blood work up as well as a abdominal ultrasound. All came back normal. She now wants me to go to a gastro dr. I can't figure out what direction i should go in. Has anyone experienced this and could it be scar tissue...Thanks
