HI K,I hope I'm not too much of a nuisance!Do you know where bile is absorbed - is it in the colon or the ileum? I've had my entire colon out but according to my surgery notes, they left 6" of ileum which I would imagine would be enough to absorb bile if that's where its stored (?)I dont believe I have gall bladder problems because I have had a CT and US plus I dont have any pain/symptoms in the upper quadrant so I'm trying to figure out why I have so much bile. I cant imagine why my system is producing all this. Hope this makes some sense?! The digestive process is so complex, I'm going round in circles trying to figure out what to do about this bile. If it didnt hurt so much I wouldnt worry, but its incredibly painful, and apart from the LRQ and LLQ pain, it's burnt all the skin from outside of my rectum which is constantly bleeding.
