Honestly I do not think if it is in the beginning. Mine was not found until recently ... or missed or something. I have had the same problems as you since then. I now take a pill called Welchol and it has helped me greatly. See a gastro who is willing to listen, I wish I had much sooner! Do not go to a doctor who will not listen to you or rushes you. Good luck!View Thread
Sounds like you have problems with digesting fat. It causes the symptoms you describe. I have had my gb removed and have had the same problems. Restrict fat in your diet and it will improve. See a gastroenterologist they can help you.View Thread
I had my gb removed in 1999 and have been messing with the doctors for a long time. I have diarrhea and abdominal pain since I had it removed. I also get reflux and nausea. I have been to so many doctors to find an answer.
Here is my answer so far: bile salt diarrhea;colitis of inderterminate nature, chronic pancreatitis,bile reflux, malabsorption syndrome
All started the doctors think with my inflamed and enlarged gallbladder that I had aparently ignored symptoms too long and it damaged my pancreas.
I go for more tests next week(endoscopy and then capsule endoscopy) Had colonoscopy in March ....View Thread
