I had my gallbladder out in jul 99 and have been ill since then. It seems that every time i eat too much fat, like fried foods or something heavy like a big meal, i get really ill. I have stomach pain, and severe diahhrea, with floating poop and oily looking spots and severe nausea. i was told that you have to modify your eating habits after having this surgery but i've talked to some people and they haven't changed a thing. i've had a very bad spell this weekend with chills, shaking, diahhrea all day saturday, nausea, and vomiting. i had fried frish, fried okra and hush puppies for lunch on friday. that must have done it cause saturday morning at 6:30 i woke up very ill. guess i'm back to oatmeal. ugh, i hate this. has anybody had problems like this after having their gallbladder out??? I mean it's been 2 years now and I still can't eat fat.
