Possible digestive problem
Posted by: Jennifer Riley

I had my gallbladder removed in April of this year. Since then I have lower right abdominal pain and bloatedness that never goes away. I have been loosing weight and always feel tired. Recently I have felt a general itchy feeling all over my body like hives but without the rash. I do have eczema on my hands which has become more red and irritated. Are all these symptoms related and do they have anything to do with a digestion problem?

Receiving question a note is like peaking into a room through a keyhole and then being asked to describe the entire contents of the room. Can't be done. Itching can be caused by wound healing and surgery is a wound. Liver disease of all kinds can result in itching. Bloating comes from the gut ordinarily and is caused by dysbiosis. The right upper quadrant is filled with the hepatic flexure of the colon. Losing weight can be from poor digestion, but also from many other causes. Eczema can be caused by toxicity. I suggest you bring these complaints, along with your body, to a good doctor for definitive studies and a medical opinion. I can't diagnose you from here although these comments may give you and your doctor a few directions to pursue.
