COuld it be adhesions? I had a lap gallbladder surgery 2.5 months ago, but mine had complications (bile ducts damaged, bile peritonitis, 2nd surgery to clean bile and repair, ICU, no fun). 4 weeks after the 2nd surgery my digestion became a mess and I started having the worst IBS symptoms ever My doc says it's from adhesions. Adhesions can form with any abdominal surgery. I'm currently looking for a good gastro to look into this. Hope you feel better.DIana
