Do any of you feel full and bloated after one meal?

I went to my doctor for a sinus infection and mentioned that I also feel full after one meal.  Sometimes I don't feel like eating for the rest of the day.  It was a mixed blessing because I have lost over 20 lbs. and I am no longer dependent on food for my happiness and comfort.  I only eat it now because I need to survive.

The first question she asked me is, "Do you still have your gallbladder?"  I do still have my gallbladder.  I let her know there isn't pain, just discomfort and bloating.  She said that I have to get an ultrasound.  The ultrasound showed one stone in the gallbladders, so now I get to go in for my tests before they decide if my gallbladder is causing these issues.

I had always correlated gallbladder disease with intense pain and puking.  Both my sister, mother-in-law and sister-in-law had to have their gallbladders removed because of intense pain. 

I have never had a surgery.  I hope that I don't need to have surgery for this.  I honestly thought it was God answering my prayer to help me lose weight. 

This is only a post for anyone else that my be going through this and not know what is wrong with their body.
