I am having it super bad since A) I had my baby and B)I had my gallbladder removed. I am cramping, have gas, and diarrea. It is bad enough that it interferes with my job and just going out and doing things.. I can't leave the house if it is acting up b/c I have to be on the toilet... and at work, when it acts up, I end up running to the bathroom constantly for the hour or sometimes even more that it is acting up! (At least I can stay on the clock, lol). PLEASE HELP!
ALSO... Even if I don't eat dairy or green leafys I still have issues. Even when I don't have lots of fatty sweets or oils... its crazy!
I was on a med called hyoscamine, (or something), and right now i don't have insurance... but it didn't do much if the episode had already started!!!

Girl, I know just how you feel. It has been the same for me since I had my gallbladder out. Its like I have to plan my day around when I am going to have to go to the bathroom. There really isn't anything you can do, that I know of. Everyone I have talked to says its just the side effect of having your gallbladder out. My only advice is to try to eat something when you wake up so that it can all be taken care of before you leave the house. I usually only have the "hell hour" once a day so when its done, its done. Please let me know if you find anything else that works!!!

Q: Ever since gallbladder surgery, I've had looser bowel movements. I also have bowel movements more often now. Could removal of my gallbladder have caused digestive problems? A: Almost 1 in every 3 people have looser and more frequent bowel movements after gallbladder surgery. A few develop more troublesome diarrhea. Scientists think that gallbladder removal decreases the amount of time that food remains in the large intestine. The large intestine removes water from digested food and stores feces for elimination from the body. When digested food moves through the large intestine faster, diarrhea-like symptoms may occur. Often just avoiding certain foods can solve the problem. If not, check with your doctor to see if your digestive problems need treatment.
I found this on-line and thought it might explain it more.
