      Slow stomach, food stays in stomach to long. Does it feel better if you fast for a bit?

          Maybe you need a new GI / second opinion. Sounds like you are on too many things. If they aren't helping, get off them. Why on creon if your pancreas is fine, for instance?

          So the problem is - you have pain with eating?

          Do they think you have gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying)? That is treated with a medicine like Reglan. It is a common cause of pain/discomfort/nausea with eating. Several people have posted on this board about having it.

          What does the surgeon think, who did you gall bladder surgery? Maybe he damaged something (like the nerve that goes to the stomach... causing some gastroparesis) and that is why you have discomfort.

          Sounds awful. Time for another opinion....

                  Take a look at your diet. Try to stay away from greasy, fried, spicy foods. Stick to bland and to small amounts. Eat more frequently if you have to. Also I too question all the medications. I would suggest that you and your doc have a talk about what maybe you can take away. If they are not working, why be on them? Reglan may be a good idea - Also, what types of fluids are you drinking? Stay away from carbonation, caffeine and anything too extreme in temperature.

                    I met a local women from the Gastroparesis support group, who got her Gastroparesis from a gallbladder removal. The nerve was cut by mistake during surgery. But of course this is only one possibility, there are others as well. Like the nurse says, try very small meals with no fat and very little fiber. (Fat and fiber slow down stomach emptying rates) Do not eat anything that is hard on your stomach, like coffee, soda or alcohol. So how are you doing now, is it getting any better?

                      No it's not better the doc took me off creon and only suppose to take it when I eat fatty foods. So as needed. No more Bental unless I have major cramps. Doc refuses to take me off any of the probiotics and no matter what I am not to stop taking the muscle relaxer or protonix. I had herb so bad that the stomache acid messed my throat up. I am to increase fruits and vegis as I do not abosorb meats very well. He's doing another upper and lower gi. I had stomache acid back up into my lungs and have a lung infection. The doc wants me to take some forum on natrual digestive enzime.

                        The muscle relaxer keeps my stomache from tensing up.

                          Try Questran powder. It was originally a drug for lowering cholesterol but it works for people who have problems after having their gallbladders removed. You can google it to see if it might work for you. Lots of people have stomach pain after gallbladder removal.

                            Maybe you need an upper GI procedure? to look at the lining of your stomach? Sometimes it is good to get down to basics when the medications aren't working. If the GI fails to fix maybe you need a second opinion.
