After I had my gallbladder removed, I couldn't get rid of the bloated stomach the dr. said would go down. Then I had a splenectomy, where they again pumped gas int om stomach before the operation. I haven't been able to get rid of it, and it's uncomfortable and annoying. My stomach hurts, as do the areas where my gallbladder and splene once were. There is a 3 letter abbreviation for the air-filled bloating and discomfort in my stomach. What is going on, and can I do something to rid myself of this extended balloon-like feeling in my stomach? I was also diagnosed with hemolytic anemia, SLE, and bruise easily.
