Pain after eating, ESPECIALLY after eating fatty foods. Incidentally, the gall bladder is on the left side of the body; not the right. What happens is the gall bladder contracts as part of the digestive process. If you have stones, bile cannot pass through the neck of the gall bladder, and that causes pain. A Vascular Surgeon I worked with told me he asks his patients to simply THINK of eating guacamole. Imagine the taste, the texture on the tongue, swallowing it....if this causes great pain in the area of the gall bladder, he orders an ultrasound scan of the gall bladder, and he says he's usually right using this little trick, because guacamole is so full of fat. Other foods that can cause pain: Cheeseburgers, ice cream, anything fatty.
Pain and tenderness in the upper right quadrant of abdomen, sometimes radiating to the back. In my case I experienced severe intermittent pain every evening until I was able to get gallbladder removed. I believe that this is caused by gallstones getting stuck in the biliary duct, causing biliary colic.
Can I do some kind of detox (home remedy) for my body to help flush out whatever it is that flairs up my gallbladder? Thanks
