Sometimes after removal of the gall bladder patients end up with diarrhea. This is usually when more bile gets into the GI tract than can be recycled at the end of the small intestine.Typical ways to cope. Reduce fat in the diet consistantly (you produce bile in proportion to the fat you eat).Some people on the board (LNAPE is one) have found Calcium supplements with meals helps (see her threads on the OTC section of the main board, you can use the Hop To bar below to get there)Questran a bile binding agent can be used to bind the excess bile, and is sometimes used to treat IBS-D when there is no gall bladder issues.With your history it may not be a bad idea to have a GI doctor in on your care, but some Family Doctors are very good at treating IBS, so it varies.K.
