Post Gallbladder Squirting



Recommended Posts

Public service announcement: if you don’t like talking about bowel movements, please don’t read any further. So 6 months after my DS I had to have my gallbladder removed laparoscopically. Well I thought all my problems were solved. Not! . So I’m right at 10 months post op DS and I am was us to have 4-5 five soft brown bowel movements daily. Post gallbladder movement especially within the last 3 months I have noticed I’m having 6-7 dark green pain bowel movement that wake me up at night at least 3 times and they are loose and grainy. Well I have increased my Fiber. Added Imodium to try to at least get through the night. Took pepto, gas x, nexium, and zofran for nausea. Finally, I decided to speak with a GI health care professionals that first I should never be getup that many times at night and if it’s loose and green I’m leaking bile salts from my gallbladder being missing and since my small intestines aren’t able to absorb my colon is going haywire basically. So long story short it’s medication for this. Wechol, Colestid, or Questran. Speak with your health care provider. Your don’t have to suffer the squirts unnecessarily.

Wow!! I'm so sorry that you have had all of the S**TY stuff. I had my gallbladder removed in 1980 after my daughter was born. I suffered from the back door trots all the time, I knew every bathroom in every store I went to. I would eat and within 15 to 30 minutes I would be in the bathroom. This went on for 12 years, then I had my GBladder removed. Still pooping big time. Noone said one word of having to watch your fats and sugar!! After my RNY I tend to go the other end of the Spectrum. More constipation. After a quack, Dr told me I had an ulcer and treated it with meds. But never stopped my pain from it. (gallbladder) I have never heard what has happened to you. Do they think it is was caused by your WLS? Man, I hope you get better soon. BTW even tho my Gallbladder has been gone for 36Years, I can still have what my mom called Phantom pains!!! Good Luck sending huge hugs!!!

The gallbladder issue was caused from the weight loss. My weight loss surgeon did the procedure. As far as the phantom pains [emoji848]? That’s a question for your provider. I don’t have any gallbladder pains just the shits 🤣. So you might want to see what’s going on. Thank you

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
