Sick after gallbladder removal

I'm 22 years old and had my gallbladder removed October 2015. My GB had polyps and sludge in it so it wasn't surprising it needing to be removed. But I was still sick afterwards with chronic pain and sickness. It seems I also have GERD.

My lipase blood tests came back slightly high so they have been doing more tests to figure out why. I am over it !

My first surgeon said it was nothing and properly IBS However I am so sick some days I can barely do anything and other days I am feeling great.

Yesterday I had a HIDA scan which showed normal billary tract but they think the pain which was happening through the test is related to something else. Basically I am now going to be living on medication that doesn't help.

I fel fantastic when I had to starve myself for the colonoscopy - almost tempted to just not eat anymore but of course that won't last long without me causing damage to myself.

Has anyone else been through similar thing? I'm struggling and want some answers. I want to be healthy and happy.
