Phantom pains long after your gallbladder is gone?

I had mine removed back in January and I feel great. I am dieting and working out to loose these baby weight since 2 months before my surgery I gave birth to my second son. I have heard of people having phantom pains though. Have you had them? Pains or cramps in the same spot where your gallbladder was?

  • I've never had my gall bladder removed, but I had one of my ovaries removed, and I did have phantom pain there.

  • Sometimes I get a short shooting pains every now and then but I didn't think about it much until people started talking about phantom pains.

  • It might not be phantom pain, it could be sphincter of Oddi dysfunction...
