After eating food i had a heavy undigested feeling in my stomach.

Resolved Question:

After eating food i had a heavy undigested feeling in my stomach. my gall was removed. i had excellent health for six months then the same feelings came back. Taking Lowsec for three weeks but as of now it is not working.very careful with my diet only eating calming food eg avocardos rice milk porridge salad etc. This morning a pain deep down my throat woke me up. Each day is different depending what i have eaten.I did eat apple muffins yesterday so did they give me this new pain? What am I suffering from? Is there anything more that a surgeon could do? Or is it best to try and cure it using alternative medicine?

Dr. Sohaib :

Hi, Welcome to Just Answer...

Dr. Sohaib :

Sorry to hear about your problem...

Dr. Sohaib :

Do you have any concurrent medical illness like diabetes, hypertension or heart disease?

Dr. Sohaib :

Any medications that you take on regular basis?

JACUSTOMER-5gvlo9n1- :

no no i do have a heart murmer

Dr. Sohaib :

And was that investigated further by means of an ECHO?

JACUSTOMER-5gvlo9n1- :

have not had that test yet

Dr. Sohaib :

Allright...

Dr. Sohaib :

Well, this could be Postcholecystectomy syndrome (PCS), which is the persistance of symptoms after cholecystectomy...

Dr. Sohaib :

These symptoms can represent either the continuation of symptoms thought to be caused by the gallbladder or the development of new symptoms normally attributed to the gallbladder....

Dr. Sohaib :

It also includes the development of symptoms caused by removal of the gallbladder...

Dr. Sohaib :

And is caused by alterations in bile flow due to the loss of the reservoir function of the gallbladder....

JACUSTOMER-5gvlo9n1- :

yes that makes sense

Dr. Sohaib :

You need to see your doctor for this, discussing the possibility of PCS...This will direct further tests like a CT/Ultrasound, and subsequent management strategy...

JACUSTOMER-5gvlo9n1- :

what is PCS

Dr. Sohaib :

Moreover, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy will also be required, which will help to exactly visulalize the problem in the stomach and intestine...

Dr. Sohaib :

PCS (Post cholecystectomy syndrome)...

Dr. Sohaib :

I will suggest you to have small frequent meals instead of taking 3 large meals...

Dr. Sohaib :

Also do not lie down immediately after taking the meal, and try to avoid spices and fats...

Dr. Sohaib :

I hope this answers your question...

JACUSTOMER-5gvlo9n1- :

have had a endoscopy yes i do that

Dr. Sohaib :

Kindest Regards...
