I had my gall bladder out by laproscopic surgery in December, 7 months ago. I have had similar pains in the left shoulder blade, very bad painful chest indigestion (on Nexium and Librax), frequent diahirra and the worst of all, a stitch in my belly button did not disovle, and it has gotten infected several times. I am now scheduled for a "procedure", to open the bellybutton and then take the sitch out. I feel for all of you, and wonder has anyone had the stitch problem? I also have lost some weight because I don't know what to eat so that I don't get the painful gas. My doc says it's stress. When in doubt, blame stress.
