Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what kind of surgery exactly did you go through to overcome your illness?
Gallstones are often treated with surgical removal of the entire bile (cholecystectomy) to prevent my risk of recurrence later in life. If this is true of the operation you went through previously, it is very likely that there is another cause that is causing your complaint at this time.
Pain around the former gallbladder surgery (right upper abdomen) to the solar plexus, accompanied by extreme nausea does not always kick back up the gallstones. It could also, these complaints arise due to other reasons, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, peptic ulcer or duodenum, pancreatitis, gastroenteritis, hepatitis, intolerance or lazy absorption of food, food poisoning, and so on. Disorders of other organ systems (besides the digestive tract), for example stones or kidney infections, fibromyalgia, excessive anxiety disorders, panic attacks, viral or other bacterial infections, and so on can also trigger complaints as you feel now.
If the complaint feels burdensome enough for you, you should not let it drag on. Check with yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine to further evaluate the possible causes. In this way, the possibility of dangerous conditions can be detected early and treated also earlier, for example with the help of x-rays, laboratory examinations, ultrasound, to endoscopy.
In the meantime, try to relieve your pain and nausea with a warm compress application. Avoid massaging areas of the body that are painful. Always use clothing that is comfortable and not tight. Make sure you always eat regularly, don't over-eat spicy, sour, fatty foods, and contain a lot of gas. Also avoid consuming excessive caffeinated beverages so that complaints don't get worse. Do not forget, always lead a healthy lifestyle in your daily life, including regular exercise, don't stress, stay away from alcohol, don't just take medicine, don't get used to eating snacks carelessly, and sleep more regularly (position your head and chest higher when nausea feels enough great).
Hope this helps ...
