Burning yellow diarrhea after gallbladder surgery?
Yes, I am having this D after Gb out on15 Jan this year... is it normal? what should I do? is this gonna stop? if so when? how aften and how many timed do you guys get this? i only had 4 solid BM since this surgery... i am missing my GB.. it's difficult to live like this help please Asked by Isabel Marcil 1 year ago.

I had mine out two years ago. The GB attacks are gone but now the frequent trips to the bathroom start. Since your GB is no longer there to store your excess bile it just sort of gets mixed into your digestive system and causes 'Bile Salt Diarrhea' which is extremely common is patients who have had their gallbladder removed. You can call your surgeon, although they will refer you to a specialist. You might want to just call your PCP and ask about the medication Cholestyramine. This is an orange flavored powder that you mix into water (or juice or whatever). It slows down the bile and also constipates you a little so that you won't have the diarrhea. It also goes by the name of Questran or Colestid. You will take 4g twice daily. It does come in pill form but the pills are huge. It's much easier to just drink it. I hope you get better. And be sure to limit the amount of fatty foods you eat too because that really helps. Answered by Madie Gallery 1 year ago.

Diarrhea After Gallbladder Removal Answered by Vashti Kendrix 1 year ago.

I havent had a gallbladder for 5 years. Your gallbladder is a processor for grease...one that is gone, your liver is suppose to take over partial function. It doesn't always happen, thus your bodies inability to break down greasy foods=diarrhea. I have found many people such as myself that have developed IBS, due to removal of their gallbladder. Find foods that work with your body, and drink a lot of water. That helps lessen the upset stomach. If you really can't stand it try taking some OTC, medication that helps to stop diarrhea.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having these post-op problems. I would strongly suggest that you call the surgeon, explain your symptoms to him/her and perhaps they can call in some medication to help with what's going on, or at the very least see you and run some tests to make sure there's no infection present. You may need to alter your dietary intake, perhaps a bland diet until this clears up, but again your doctor would be the best person to contact as they're more familiar with your medical history. Best of luck to you. Answered by Nick Mancias 1 year ago.

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. Answered by Marinda Hovermale 1 year ago.

don't take your drug advice from anonymous people with dubious qualification to answer. Are there no 24 hour pharmacies where you live? btw aside from the drowsiness, they are OK to take together. That's what you pharmacist told you......right? Answered by Sammy Drescher 1 year ago.
