I had gallbladder removed several years ago. How can I know

Customer Question

I had gallbladder removed several years ago. How can I know if now if it could be my pancreas causing the following symptoms. I am passing more gas that is sometimes foul smelling, having more than usual bowel movements, extremely nauseated and pain towards upper right of abdomen. And now I had blood test this past Monday I know my LDL cholesterol is high at 219 and so is other cholesterol levels high.

pancreas problems would not cause those symptoms.

your symptoms sound more like IBS or irritable bowel syndrome

or from poor diet, not enough fruits and vegetables.

or bowel sensitivity to lactose or gluten.
