The GI consultant i saw a few weeks ago wrote to me today.He has been pondering my symptoms and thinks i could possibly be suffering from a variation on cyclical vomiting syndrome.He says variation as i don't actually vomit but have cycles of long term nausea. He says it's only a slight possibility but it could be what's causing my symptoms. So i am to trial a low dose of beta blocker which is effective in contolling CVS.This throws up (no pun intended!) somewhat of a dilema. Should i proceed with the planned gallbladder removal. I think i will write to the surgeon and put it on hold to see how the beta blockers work out.To be honest since commencing mirtazapine i am virtually symptom free.....4 months of good weight gain and virtual normality.....typical when faced with surgery. Lol.

If medication is helping you and Doctor wants you to try beta blockers,i think that is worth doing rather than going ahead with surgery at the moment,but of course only you can decide that and see what the Doctor says also.You must let me know how you get on with the trial as i suffer from awful nausea also.Good luck.

Not sure what all of your symptoms are... but I too experienced a lot of nausea before having my gallbladder removed. Honestly, even though I had gb disease I wish I would've tried other things before proceeding with the surgery. If you have IBS, unfortunately having your gallbladder removed could exacerbate the symptoms :/. I hope the meds work out for you!
