First of all, I like your screen name! Cute!

I haven't been sleeved yet but I did have my gall bladder removed a couple years ago.

My symptoms were intense dull pain in the center of my stomach up high near the ribs and also on my right side up high. It was dull but also sharp pains would come and go. It was very painful and would keep me awake all night. Nothing would relieve the pain... No antacid, pain reliever or anything until I had my gall bladder removed. No problems since.

Have you ever had a baby? It's like that! I would go into shock and pass out when I got gallbladder pain, it was especially bad if I ate anything with any grease in it (because that's the gallbladders job- pump bile into stomach to combat food).

It can be very dull, deep, with some sharp spasms, mostly upper but some lower abdomen. Lol- that sounds like a puzzle!

I would def. check with a dr for an ultrasound or something because as mom2five said: nothing will make gb pain go away!!!

Its usually the only option. And the surgery is a breeze. I was home the same day as surgery.

I never had any problems with my gallbaldder until after surgery. It was a constant achy dull pain on the right side. It progressively got worse and had to get it taken out 2 weeks after I got my sleeve. I was so terrified to go under the knife again so soon. But luckily the gallbladder surgery was MUCH MUCH easier to recover from....I forgot the name of the test they ran to check my gallbladder but talk to your dr so he can schedule it for u. Good luck!!

I'm post op and I am having gallbladder problems... Having my gallbladder out soon. My symptoms were super sharp painful pains in the center of my chest right below my rib cage. Would come on suddenly. Would get clammy and hot and sweaty. The pain would/could last for hours. I have to take a heavy duty painkiller to help it.

Consult with surgeon tomorrow to remove gallbladder

I am five Months post op and have been having pain for 2 months. I have a stone (5.6 mm) and sludge.

Thank you everyone. Its a dull ache on right side. doesn't hurt to touch. goign through alot of stress right now, havent eaten for 4 days and drink very little. trying to eat is so hard (nothing to do with surgery). hopefully its temporary and not gallbladder.

Rather than surgery they can use a type of electric shatterer thingy but it doesn't always work/ they can come back. It's the same concept of labour: trying to push something too big out of something too small- the stones gets stuck in the duct between gallbladder and stomach when bile released.

Mine was only classified as "sand" rather than stones so the electricity thing wouldn't have worked anyway :( oh and when the do biliary pancreatic diversion they routinely take out the gallbladder because of the high probability of getting gallstones post-op...

Hope the pain goes away :)

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
