thanks to all on this forum for sharing their experiences and insights.
I had my gallbladder out july 2005 after a severe attack and blocked duct, but realize now that I had been suffering symptoms and attacks for years that I chalked up to heartburn, food poisoning, allergies, etc.
One of the most annoying symptoms post-surgery is this chronic diarrhea, and i've been all over the internet and read the stories of many people who suffer the same problem. I have given up caffeine and fatty foods, but mainly suffer when trying to eat a salad or raw vegetables.. Isn't that the ultimate catch-22?... Trying to eat naturally and healthy and have it aggravate the problem?
Has anyone had any luck with a natural remedy?
I did read about a new medication, brandname questran, but I would like to avoid a prescription medication if I can.
Thanks in advance.
I, too, have the classic symptoms of "the dumping syndrome" unfortunately, even now, 3 months post surgery tomorrow. My surgeon has prescribed "questran". It is very inexpensive, and is a powder that is simply mixed with water or juice of your choice in the morning of a day that you can't afford to have diarrhea. It really works.
Now..........I'd love to hear from people who have had the dumping syndrome, and if they had any remedies (natural would be great!), and how long it took to shake the diarrhea.
