I did a blog of this today and someone replied about looking into a gluten-free diet. So I am posting this same message here to see what others on this team think.
Over a year ago, I all of sudden had left side pain that sometime shifted to the middle then to the right. After several days of it not going away, I went to my primary who's first guess was gall bladder problem. I then had several tests and several specialist appointments, all of which determined my gall bladder was functioning at a 0. I elected to have it removed since I had a dead organ inside me. Since it was removed, I have noticed I do not tolerate (if that is a good choice of a description) some foods that never gave me issues before. I noticed that pizza, any frozen box lunches, fruit, lettuce salad, dairy, rice krispie treats...just to name a few, cause some issues some time later that day. My food reaction isn't always a run to the toilet either. There's mild pain on the left side and center of stomach and also extreme gas ( yes, I have a noisy bottom). I am still discovering new foods all the time that seem to not like me anymore. I am trying to be more aware of what I eat and how I feel to see if there is a pattern or a food group to completely avoid. I haven't had a physical with my physician yet this year to ask him/her what they think. I am thinking I am now developing food allergies or an intolerance since the gall bladder is now gone.
