I'm wondering if I have a bile leak. I had my gallbladder removed in Jan 09. 3 days after the surgery, I felt intense burning on my right side and have been suffering ever since. Mosly, burning, gastritis, reflux feelings. Upper endoscopy in Apr showed mild gastritis and excessive bile in my stomach. Drs keep telling me I'm fine and I'm just ultra sensitive to pain. What???? Is burning a symptom of bile leak?
