I had my gallbladder removed 6 months ago. I did not have stones, only inflammation. After surgery I continued to have problems. I felt like I was getting worse. About 2 months after surgery I was diagnosed with Gastritis. I managed to get it to go away, but have recently been feeling a lot of pain. I am VERY strict about my diet ever since surgery and do not falter from it. I eat all organic, gluten free, nondairy, low fat, local, fresh food. I rarely eat anything processed, but when I do it is organic and has less than 5 ingredients. I also am very active. I exercise 4 days a week and am not stressed out. In fact I have been the happiest I have been in my life this past year.
So I am very confused about what could possibly be going on with me now. I have tightness in my chest and ribs, heart palpitations and irregular heart beat (never have had heart problems before surgery), feel as though my intestines are inflamed, and sometimes feel lightheaded when I eat as though I am going to pass out. My body does not handle sugar well anymore since surgery so I do not eat it ever. I also have only had 2 periods this year and never had problems with it before. I should also mention that the possible cause of my gallbladder disease was from my birth control that I had taken for 7 years but quit taking this past January and I am only 26 and not overweight.
Anyone else have problems like this? I am doing everything right, not stressing, eating healthy, etc. I also do not take any medication as I have only had serious side effects from meds in the past.
