So we’ve all been warned about dumping syndrome from too much sugar. What I wasn’t warned about was bile diarrhea if I don’t eat enough. Anyone suffering with me? I truly forget to eat because I don’t get hungry and then I get 2 weeks of nonstop green bile diarrhea because I don’t eat enough. I think it’s partially because I have no gallbladder but this is very new to me and awful!

Sorry you're going through this. There is a medicine that can help bind up the extra bile. It's something like cholestyramine, if you want to ask your doctor.

hmmmm....I've never heard of this. But you're right - it may be due to having no gall bladder.

I had the same thing happen, but I don't think mine is due to a lack of food. I don't have a gallbladder either, and I didn't have this issue prior to surgery. After my VSG though, it was daily! Honestly, it was horrible and finally asked my doctor for advice. She prescribed me a powder (as mentioned above), and it was a lifesaver. I immediately felt normal again. I drink one packet of powder, every other day, and I have no issues. Some people drink one every day, but I find that I don't need it that often.
