Just wanted to let everyone know that its not always what doctors say! I have been quite ill for over 18 months now and been to a&e 3 times,presenting with a huge stomach, like nine months pregnant with twins, this happened suddenly, feeling like vomiting, urgent loose bowels, looked very sick, doctors thinking I had liver cancer at first, I had 4 months of tests looking for cancer as tests came back showing my body had something wrong, hospital did not want to do anything saying you just got IBS, I perservered with my gp and finally they found I had a condition caused from having my gallbladder out 40 years ago, my body coped fine all those years and i was slim, suddenly i gained weight, one week i put on 7kg. The condition i have is called Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, so if you have had gallbladder removal and then problems started, even years later it is worth looking into this, I cannot digest food properly or metabolise fat, hence the weight gain even though going to ww and then doing the low carb diet. wishing you all well.
