Suggest treatment for increased diarrhea after gallbladder removal
not being at home. This came less than one day after flying on two planes. It would've been horrible on the planes. Should I see a specialist or just put it down to the lack of a gallbladder?
Need a gastro visit, colonoscopy and rectal examination
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I completely understand your symptoms and can relate to them. In my opinion, the cause is most probably either:
+Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
So in response to your query about whether to visit a specialist or not, I would say yes, please do visit a gastroenterologist. Rule out the gall bladder issue, and request for a colonoscopy and elaborate intestinal evaluation.
For your reference I shall also list all symptoms related to IBS, so you can relate to them and help ascertain whether this is a posaibility or not. They are:
+Abdominal bloating (especially during an episode)
+Sensitivity to certain types of food and/or drink (also called trigger factors, which I shall list later on)
+Mucus in the stool
+Increased need or frequency of passing bowels (almost immediately after consuming trigger food or drinks)
+Diarrhea or constipation
+Abdominal pain or cramps (occasionally, but especially during an episode)
The main thing about IBS is to identify all the triggering factors in your case and avoid them. Let me list some of the most common ones out for you:
+Fried, oily, fatty food
+Milk and other dairy products (including cheese)
+Gluten containing foods
+Sugar containing food and drinks
+Inositol and sorbitol (found in many drinks)
+Refines breads and cereal
+Skin of fruits ans vegetables
And a few other more individual-specific ones.
If you can relate to anything I have mentioned above or have more questions, please do not hesitate to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.
I am glad I could be of assistance
