could a bad gallbladder cause significant weight loss..night sweats and pain between the shoulder blades?

Possible

Weight_loss
Gallbladder disease can cause weight loss and pain between the shoulder blades. The pain intensifies when you eat a fatty meal. It typically does not cause night sweat. See your doctor for evaluation.

Please tell me what to do about weight loss after gallbladder surgery?

Gallbladder surgery

Weight
Having gallbladder surgery doesn't typically make you lose weight. Maybe a few pounds because you aren't eating a lot after surgery, and maybe a few more pounds because you are not supposed to eat fatty foods, but other than that, gallbladder surgery is not a weight loss operation.

Dr. Mark Kuhnke answered:

Is it normal to have weight loss/gain after gallbladder removal?

Not physiologic

Body_weight
You shouldn't have weight loss. You may have weight gain if you are enjoying fatty foods that were bothering you prior to your surgery. Just enjoy a balanced diet and moderate activity and your weight should stay steady. Good luck.

Losing weight. Want to protect gallbladder. Had sand in gb before. Besides slow loss, are there foods or safe remedies to help gallblader?

Sand will grow

Gall_bladder
There is no way to get rid of the sand or sludge in the gallbladder. Although a medicine exists to help dissolve stones, it only works 50% of time and doesn't work well on multiple stones. Sand will likely grow w time to become multiple stones. Best overall management is well balanced diet with good control of fats and cholesterol.

Pain/pressure/discomfort upper abdomen/between breasts. Right abdomen to back. Weight loss & feels like something stuck between breasts. Gallbladder?

Need evaluation

Pain
Upper mid abdominal pain may be from several sources. These include gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and occasionally if the pain is radiating to the mid back it could be from the pancreas. Abdominal pain could be from the gallbladder but is usually localized to the right upper quadrant. However gallstones exiting the gall bladder may obstruct the common bile duct

Pain in upper right back, inside rib cage. Gallbladder removed in 2010-dirreah, weight loss, night sweats. Enzymes over 810-Neg for Hep, Lupus,Wilson?

? retained stone

Systemic_lupus_erythematosus
there are a number of tests, ultrasound, MRCP that you could have to rule out a retained or new primary gallstone in your bile ducts. If these are clear an ERCP may help. IF it is not a stone then review your meds. Many things can affect the liver: tylenol, alcohol, cholesterol meds, etc. If nothing is found they may want to image your liver.

My son has severe RUQ and weight loss. All tests and labs show normal. HIDA scan was 91% EF. GI won't remove gallbladder. How do I find one who will?

Gallbladder Disease

Hida_scan
If The work up performed by your G.I. does not show any evidence of gallbladder disease, then there really is no reason to remove the gallbladder. Maybe other causes of your sons symptoms should be explored.
