I am needing to have a cholecystectomy, so I was reading forums online, and the majority I read is that afterwards people were miserable with trying to have a piece of pizza, and we're violently vomitting after one or two glasses of wine, or any kind of drink. I am not a heheh drinker, I drink about once a month, but I'm only 24 and it does bum me out to think about giving that up. I am hoping some people that read this would have a good gallbladder removal story to tell me. I would hope that not everyone is unable to drink a few beers or eat a piece of pizza! Answered by Lillian Senff 3 months ago.

Do a google search on "Colestid" . The problems after gallbladder removal are the liver produces too much bile. This can cause vomiting or diarrhea. Colestid will allow you to eat/drink whatever you want. Answered by Merrie Magaddino 3 months ago.

Gallbladder Alcohol Intolerance Answered by Danae Fulwiler 3 months ago.

22 year old, had my gallbladder out via lap. cholecystectomy on the 1st day of this month. I can already eat and drink anything I like with the exclusion of pork. I can eat mudcake or pizza no problems, so long as I don't eat pork. The worst you'll get after eating the wrong thing is a bit of queasiness the next day and diarrhea of varying degrees which sometimes might feel like it burns a little, but it's not the worst thing to put up with to say the least (beats gallbladder attacks right?) Curiously, do you have any family members who have had theirs out? I've found my symptoms, and post-choly symptoms matched all 8 people in my family who had theirs out exactly! So I would see how other family members tolerate theirs being out. I'm only 22 and I know exactly how you feel when you say it's a bummer to give up fatty foods and alcohol, but if anything else, it's probably a healthier lifestyle change =) Everyone is different though, you'll find out over time after your surgery. Whilst I wouldn't recommend going out and having a bottle of vodka anytime soon post-surgery like I did, just remember everyone will have their intolerances and such post-choly. I hear some people can't eat a lot of things and some people say they can't drink, however, I've had alcohol since (again, probably not advisable) and I had no problems although I did notice I tend to get drunk a little quicker, so if you do go back onto alcohol, I recommend you take it slow and start with small amounts + plenty of water, and see how you go. Good luck with your surgery, it's worth it to get rid of the attacks! Answered by Gabrielle Arcano 3 months ago.

I suffered from constipation and very severe diarrhea. I went to a gastroenterologist. I had a colonoscopy and other test I was prescribed a medication, Colestid, which I took for about three years.

I sounds like you need to add fiber in your diet with a lot of water. My doctor told me to use Citracal every night. It's great for fiber and helping you be regular. Go real easy on caffeine and salt. Also, I'm a naturally nervous person and started taking Nature's Plus Mega-Stress Complex. It has Valerian root in it too that helps calm you down. The lady at Central Market said it would help with my stress. I didn't really believe her, but it has helped a lot. I didn't take it for a couple of days and could notice a difference. I've been called a hypochondriac too, but the symptoms are real and I believe you. If you're still having problems, go see a gastroenterologist who will do the appropriate testing to make sure you're all right. Good luck! :) Answered by Lindy Mazar 3 months ago.

It might be anxiety driven, since you can lose a lot of weight, have nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and other digestive upset with severe anxiety. It's a side effect of the fight or flight response going horribly wrong. Instead of talking to a doctor you might want to see about a therapist or psychiatrist.

Anxiety can cause diarrhea and sudden need to "go". It can cause weight loss..........but 43 lbs??? ! Your fears can be settled down through the course of a couple of medical procedures and a few lab tests. Ask your Dr if you could benefit from a colonoscopy - a camera goes through the length of your colon, searching for abnormalities looking from the bottom end. a scoping of your esophagus/ stomach - camera looks in your top end. - don't worry, they do it while you're "asleep", after you've cleaned out your intestinal tract with fluids. You may be asked for blood tests, and possibly a stool sample. Answered by Noble Wurz 3 months ago.

As long as your doctor says you are OK, I think you can try to relax. It seems like you are having a lot of anxiety associated with your concern for your health. Let your doctor do the diagnosing. It might help if you try doing some techniques to reduce your anxiety. Breathe deeply and slowly Relax all the muscles in your body Let your mind go blank I hope you will feel better soon. Answered by Jayme Ballintyn 3 months ago.

calm down...... now...... anxiety does cause upset with your bowels, just as you have described. you could have something called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), but a lot of people get it and it is perfectly treatable. go to the docs and they will help. acid reflux is also a symptom of stress and anxiety so try and calm down. what do you think is making you so anxious. did you lose all that weight quickly, if so your body has to sort itself out and calm down too. don't spend so much time thinking about your bodily functions, find something to do and do it. you say 6 docs have checked you out, do you think that the 6 of them may be right between them. if you really are that worried and can't find any peace in this, then ask God to help you, ask , it can't do any harm can it, and it may just do you a lot of good. ask Him to come into your life and sort you out ... He will... then you wont have to worry anymore. x Answered by Mitzie Parolini 3 months ago.

The only thing that is notable here is that you lost 43 pounds. Did you need to lose 43 pounds are you overweight? You clearly said you were afraid to eat "for the longest time" - that's why you lost 43 pounds, not because you have cancer. The rest of it sounds ordinary, you're just obsessing over it. Your body is alive, it makes noises. Gases move and bubble, food travels on through. Sounds like you need to go to the psych instead of the doctor, you shouldn't be assuming you have cancer or worrying about a bodily noise, or not eating. Go and see one and talk about your fears. That's what they are there for. Answered by Manuel Glasbrenner 3 months ago.

Anything that might be advisable for a non-hypochondriac to do would not be good for you, because you would way overdo it and cause yourself harm. That's what you've done to yourself already.

Migraines or headaches?
I forgot to mention the current meds that I take: Atenolol (for SVT), Colestid, and Nexium. I thought Atenolol would help the migraines as well but it doesn't. I'm also taking Compazine for nausea. Ever since these headaches started I have been naseaous and vomiting. Asked by Caitlyn Tomidy 3 months ago.

I have been having severe headaches since the beginning of April. These headaches usually last all day with little or no breaks inbetween. I noticed that when I get them my pupils dilate. I went to my opthamologist and he said my optic nerves had little damage to them and they were probably cluster headaches. I then went to my PCP - he started me on Prednisone for 7 days but there was no relief. Since then he's put me on Fioricet, Imitrex, Axert, Zomig, Tylenol #3, and Epidrin. None of these have given me any relief. I went to a neurologist on Friday and he confirmed that they were not migraines. He said my symptoms were not typical of migraine behavior. Headaches last all day on my left side, no tearing or yellowing of eyes, no runny nose, but my hearing on the left sometimes goes out. He prescribed Naproxen and also ordered an MRI. He told me it could be something more serious.I have a lot of faith in this doctor as he has been voted one of the best in America since 1996 Answered by Charles Herres 3 months ago.

yes, honestly, i does sound like there is a possibility of any of those options. but also, it could be as simple as stress or sinus related as well. Don't get too worried, but if it keeps bothering you keep getting it check out Answered by Joey Brueggemann 3 months ago.

Fioricet, Imitrex, Axert, Zomig,Epidrin are medicines given for migraine Naproxen, Tylenol #3 are prescribed as pain-killers. I have no idea why the doc gave you Prednisone. (they are normally given for allergic reactions) Im suffering from migraines myself. My pupils do get dilated. My other migraine symptoms include seeing spectral colors just before a headache called as "aura". I normally feel better after throwing up and sleeping. When u get a slight headache, its better to take a pain-killer. If you are undergoing too much stress, if you are exposed to much sunlight, and if you are eating cheese or chocolate too much, then u have a risk of having migraine headaches. Anyway coming back to you, first get your eye pressure checked by an opthalmologist. Then check your vision if you dont have glasses. Then please undergo an MRI as your doctor advised you. The MRI may feel scary. I have known a lot people who refused to undergo MRI cos they were scared of the sounds and felt claustrophobic. But its better to get serious things ruled out. So instead of thinking whats gone wrong, its better u get a MRI done. Regarding your fears about tumors, get an MRI done. If everything is fine with the MRI, then fine. Or else, there is still hope. Never lose heart. And always go to the doc for a regular checkup. People might call u a hypochondriac but u r insuring yourself for a long and happy life. Call it personal "Life Insurance".

Hi. I get them too. I am additionally on meds. however I check out to not use them. A nap most commonly works. If you set an ice percent at the side that hurts that may paintings as good. Get the bendy ice percent when you consider that as you most commonly recognize the migraine will also be at extra then one position. The massive factor is to calm down. The quality factor to do is the nap or to only lay down your room with all lighting fixtures and TV off. Sound and lighting fixtures are the worst while handling this terrible migraine. Also caffeine and sugar is not any well. I spotted that it brings at the headache. I are aware of it sucks that you just cant have espresso or chocolate as so much however a minimum of you are going to be agony unfastened! I gave you a supply wish it is helping. Hope that kinda is helping. Answered by Lanie Dolph 3 months ago.

My husband had severe headaches for a whole summer. The doctors told him they were tension headaches and then they said migraines. When he got one that lasted for three days instead of the usual one day they finally did an MRI. He was so bad that he did not get off our couch for three days. We got home from the MRI appointment and there was a message on our machine saying he needed to go to the er immediatley. he had bleeding in his brain so severely that the mid line that keeps your brain halves separate was pushed over a couple milimeters. He stayed in the hospital for 9 days. While the blood reabsorbed and they tried to find the leak. They never did find a leak. After getting out he wasn't allowed to lift drive or work. He is now allowed to do almost everything. He shouldn't lift an excessive ammount of weight and he can't do things that might cause head trauma like skiing. The doctors can't guarantee it won't happen again. he carries a paper in his wallet in case he gets iin an accident, it also says if he goes to the er with a bad headache it needs to be taken seriously and that they should do a cat scan right away.

You are (already) overdosing. You shouldn't take more than 1 kind of antihistamine, they all do the same thing. Taking 2 of X and 2 of Y is the same as taking 4 of X. You can take an antihistamine and decongestant at the same time, and even a pain relieving tablet, but not 2 anti-histamines, unless a doctor is monitoring your situation. You're asking for trouble, your poor liver. I hope you don't drink alcohol too. Look for antihistamines that people complain cause drowsiness, unfortunately these are the most effective, but you would have to put up with the drowsiness in exchange for better relief.

Can i take these medications together?
Can i take Bentyl, Beano,Gas-x, and imodium all in the same day? i just had my gallbladder taken out about two weeks ago and am having diarriha and gas all the time. It's really embarrassing and uncomfortable? Asked by Sharolyn Rupert 3 months ago.

Call your doctor's office tomorrow to see if they think this normal at 2 weeks post surgery. Sometimes this can be a sign of a possible problem described below. I would let your doctor know & see if you can use over-the-counter meds or if you need a prescription. Here's the info on possible problems post gallbladder removal: Often after gallbladder surgery, temporary diarrhea is common but, usually improves within a few weeks of the operation. Some individuals, however, are troubled by persistent diarrhea after their gallbladder is removed. The symptoms may vary, but most patients complain that they often experience urgency and watery diarrhea shortly after eating. Bile Salts are often the culprit.Bile is a thick yellow fluid made by the liver. It helps you digest the fat in your diet. Between meals, liver bile is stored in the gallbladder, a little sac beneath the liver. When you eat, the gallbladder squeezes and releases the stored bile salts into the small intestine to help with digestion. After food is digested and absorbed, the bile salts are reabsorbed at the end of the small intestine and recycled to be used over and over again. When the gallbladder is surgically removed, the liver must make more bile salts, and more are released between meals because there is no place to store them. The increased amount of bile salts can sometimes overwhelm the small intestines' capacity to reabsorb them. The excess spills over into the large intestine, or colon, where bile acts somewhat like a laxative, leading to diarrhea. There is no way to prevent this. Why some patients develop this side effect after gallbladder surgery and others do not is still a mystery. Unfortunately, there is no way to predict before surgery who will develop this problem afterwards. Having this side effect does not reflect on the skill of the surgeon or how the surgery was done. It is really just bad luck. Fortunately, the vast majority of patients do not develop bile salt diarrhea after gallbladder surgery. The exact risk is not well studied but estimated to be about 5% of patients. There is no cure for this problem, but treatment is available. Once it has been established that bile salt diarrhea is the problem, treatment is usually prescribed to lessen the symptoms of diarrhea and urgency. The mainstay of treatment is a powder called cholestyramine resin (Pronunciation: kole ESS tir a meen). It comes as a powder that is mixed with about 6 ounces of water. Several formulations are available such as Locholest, Locholest Light, Prevalite, Questran, Questran Light. It also comes in a tablet form called Colestid. Much like a chemical "sponge," this medicine lowers blood cholesterol by trapping and inactivating bile salts in the intestine, preventing their reabsorption. By trapping bile salts, cholestyramine also helps patients with bile salt diarrhea. The dose required to treat this condition varies, but most individuals only require one dose a day usually right before lunch. Most patients with this problem find that one daily dose of cholestyramine works quite well. Some seem to do better on a low-fat diet. Others find that they are helped by the use non-prescription medications to lessen diarrhea such as Imodium. Imodium can be safely taken several times a day. While some individuals do get better over time, most patients who have bile salt diarrhea that persists longer than 3 months after gallbladder surgery have it for life. It can usually be controlled with treatment. However, as soon at the cholestyramine is stopped, the diarrhea quickly returns. The whole goal of treatment is to prevent attacks of diarrhea and make their life normal again. Hope this helps & you are feeling better soon. Good luck! Answered by Kareen Dockus 3 months ago.


I had surgery on my gall bladder, and now I have bad diarrhea at times. .?

you cant eat oily foods,fried foods,dairy:butter,yogurt,milk etc. I was sent to a gastroenterologist,he gave me me a medication called Colestid.Its a powder,has to be dissolved in water and taken 20-30minutes before i eat.It prevents the diarrhoea,cramping and loud noises. Call your Dr,as Colestid is prescription only.

Answered by Sunday Peddicord 3 months ago.

Well I'm not a guy but I will tell you about my experience and what I know. I suffered with my gall bladder for 2 years before it was finally decided that it should come out. In that time I was seen by 3 doctors, I had all of the tests done for diagnosing the condition and all of them came out normal. I was 25 when my symptoms first started and I was 27 when it was finally removed. Mine had gotten to the point that I was septic from the infection and it was about to rupture when they took me into surgery. At first you have to watch what you eat, ie. greasy foods, etc but within 6 weeks I was eating normal again. Certain foods will cause my tummy to act up but other than that I felt an immediate relief after experiencing pain for so long. What you are reading is the most common reasons for your gall bladder to be removed it's not the only ones though. I've known several guys who had the same issue. I hope this helps. Answered by Dusty Trochesset 3 months ago.

If you eat something and you have diarrhea instantly, it's probably not from what you just ate. It would take more than a couple of minutes to go through you. If this has been happening for more than a couple of days, I would go back to your doctor. Believe it or not, it is common after having cholecystectomy (gallbladder surgery). Do a quick search on the internet for "diarrhea after cholecystectomy" and you will probably find some answers as to the cause. I don't think it's from what you are eating, but rather from the surgery. Go back to the doctor to get it all checked out, though! Answered by Laure Arora 3 months ago.

hey what kind of surgery done to gall bladder?its hard to tell with out many details but there is no any serious connection between digesting and gall bladder..it produce enzymes for many things and for digestion etc etc..i think u better consult a doctor dont come to own conclusion.and care to not eat that kind of foods.diarrhea is a common ill..it can be have for many reasons..its not serious..there are many medicines for that.for eg- if u going to eat fatty meal before that take dehydrate tabs(anti diarrhea tabs) there are many tabs..like antimotility drugs like lomotil(co-phenotrope) or codine phosphate for some countries these drugs are over the counter medicine i dunt know about your country.if it is u can buy from drug store without any prescription there are not harmful drugs but only take 1 for day no diarrhea for whole day..dunt take much coz it may coz constipation..im a apprentice pharmacist..i can tell u 10000 of medicines for that..but i think my advice is enough.. get well soon.. health is wealth ...!!!!!

Hi SJ, the doctors are on the right road, there trying to get your digestive system to absorb the meds and your having problems breaking down the molecule fushions, thats a lot of meds, you have bacterial resistance. You have two different infections in your body, a least one location factor, and a body with no energy. Stay with your doctors, they just need a little bit more information, if you can look into getting a vega test done by someone with medical experience, it will tell you where in your body these infections are and what to do, it will tell you alot more too.

If you know of a website that gives this information in a easy to understand fashion, I would also appreciate that as well. I am also looking for a website which allows me to enter all my medications and which tells me which should not be taken together because of their side-effects. Thank you for you help.

The reason for asking this here is two-fold. First, I consider the brain-trust of members of YA to be second to none. When we get multiple responses, it is all the better. Second, it helps others who also have the same type of question get an answer without them having to ask it. Thank you for all who have given their two-cents worth. I really appreciate it, even from those who did not respond with an answer. Answered by Cornelia Valera 3 months ago.

When you get your meds from the pharmacy they tell you when to take them. The info would be on the education page. These meds are not just AM or PM meds, they are also with or without food. Of course as usual, you could be off most of these meds if you would just watch your diet and exercise. You know I have to add that last little ditty.

How often do you take them? Metformin you should take before meals. Gemfribrozil 30 minutes before meals Benicar can be taken whenever, with or without food Ranitidine has many different types -s o it depends Answered by Eunice Bortz 3 months ago.

Metformin should be taken prior to meals as it is a diabetic medication. Ranitidine is Zantac which is for your stomach. You may take that AM and before bed if that is the way it is prescribed. Answered by Jeanmarie Davalos 3 months ago.

You Doctor and Pharmacist should both of advised you when to take your meds, and if they haven't should be reported. I think it is completely irresponsible of them. The doctor should also have told you if one interferes with the other. I would certainly be on the phone to either of them and not try to learn about it here.

are you me? I asked the same thing but I take about 22 different meds and was gonna go to the pharmacist and dump them out and ask him, but thats too much to do, so I just sit at home and get calls and letters from all these med companies that want me to be studied by them do to taking all their meds. good luck!

all the medicines you mentioned are to be taken best in the morning at least and hour before having breakfast... most medicines are to be taken with food so it doesnt irritate the stomache. Answered by Allen Pavlovich 3 months ago.

Why in the world ask very important questions like those here? It's your health, you should be asking your dr. who knows you, not people who are basically total strangers. Answered by Sha Katzmark 3 months ago.
