I had my gall bladder removed over 2 years ago and I am still having terrible problems with bloating, gas, and loose stools. I have also gained some weight around my abdomin. I have always been a very thin person with a small waist but that is not the case anymore. I become very uncomfortable after I eat. I have changed my diet (changed to low-fat, increased my fiber intake, added probiotic suppliments) I feel lousy all the time except when I'm hungry and there is no food in my digestive system. What can I do to make eating and digesting food easier and less uncomfortable?
I see that your question is 3 years old, but if you're still searching for an answer, I have something that should help you. I discovered a blog several years ago suggesting Caltrate 600 would help with the diarrhea. It's' the supplement in the purple and white bottle. I take one after breakfast, which works for the noon meal. I take one after lunch, which works for the evening meal. Some people have to take another one during the night for the breakfast meal. You'll need 3-4 hours for each one to work. This works by absorbing the excess bile produced by your liver, which can no longer be stored by your gallbladder. I hope this helps.
