Probable IBS: This is a common condition likely related to irritable bowel syndrome (ibs). The fact is that there is likely nothing there to come out and you just have the sensation that there is. It has nothing to do with your gallbladder. Many times a high fiber diet or fiber supplement can be of benefit.

Diet: Diet modification could be useful. Remember the gallbladder has an important function in the metabolism of fat. Anyway; you should inform your dr because he will make sure there are no other factors involved in your particular case.
