Re: Bowel Problems After Gallbladder Surgery

I had my gallbladder removed 12-29-99. My mother and my sister have both had to have theirs removed as well. Since then, we have all had "attacks" and were told that there are still stones in our systems. Luckily, we don't have these "attacks" very often. My sister and I have both noticed bowel problems since the removal. We don't necessarily have to "run" to the bathroom, but when we feel the urge, we have to go real quick. Often, for me anyway, when I feel the urge for a BM or during I cramp and have terrible abdominal pain. I also get diarrhea often. I never had such a sensitive stomach or bowels before my gallbladder was removed. I think that for some people it does make you sensitive to certain foods and the bowels can be greatly affected as well. I have heard of nothing to help this, except for following a low fat diet. I'm glad you spoke up, because there is so little information out there about what can happen after gallbladder removal. I guess it is somthing we will have to live with.
