I got my gallbladder removed almost a year ago. I never had any acid reflux before except little mild heartburn during my pregnancy. I did not realize i was getting acid reflux until my throat was getting irritated and my ENT said it was not bacteria infection it was from acid. I get acid reflux no matter what i eat or drink now even water causes it. I seen a gastro. doctor and he put a scope in my stomach & first intestines but he did not see a ulcer or nothing abnormal. Has anyone experienced this problem ?
i too had my gallbladder out a year ago and the acid reflux is huge. none of the otc meds worked. i finally got nexium and cant live without it. heart burn gone. just out of curiosity i also have become quite sensitive to dairy products. i loved milk and cant do low fat so there seems to be a price to pay when ever i have milk or icecream ( diarrhea, bloating pain). do you find the same
Yes i have alot bloating, gas & sometime diarrhhea with dairy. I have been trying to figure out why this is happening & i found some interesting articles that it may not even be acid it may be bile reflux & the only way to really find out is doing a 24 hr PH test. I still get some regurgtation even with antacids. Plus the long term of antacids can lead to some other health probalems later. I really am so frustrated with this acid relux or whatever it is since i've never had it before.
yes i had my gallbladder removed 5 years ago and ever sice i to have severe problems with acid refux i had everything checked their are no problems internally my doctors says their not related i do not believe that i never had this burning before that last for days no matter what i eat the medicine prilosec dont work i cant stand the pain
I've heard of some users who get "bile reflux" after gallbladder surgery. Basically the stomach valve nerve or muscle at the end of the stomach doesn't function right and bile can sneak in, causing pain..nausea and acid reflux.
I've heard sleeping on your right side helps and avoiding laying on your left side (because your stomach if I remember right drains mostly to the right) or not laying down immediately after eating for a good 30+ min. helps as well (with acid blockers)
