Hi Donser-

Have you seen a health care provider about this? If you haven't, you really should. This could be related to your gallbladder surgery, or it could be many other things, some no big deal and others that would need treatment.

We have a section on the digestive system here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/digestive-system

Is the pain in your actual stomach area, or in your abdomen somewhere? What sort of pain is it? Achy, sharp, crampy, etc.? Does it get worse before or after eating?

These are the types of questions you will be asked when you get checked out by your provider. What you describe could be anything from reflux to pancreatitis or even a stone left in the bile duct when your gallbladder was taken out. Or it could just be gas, or post gallbladder symptoms that some people get. Those symptoms are often diet related.

Please see your provider to discuss what it going on before it gets worse. There is no reason to have daily pain like this when the answer could be a simple diet change or acid-reducing pill.

Good luck and if we can be of further help, please let us know.
