For people with no gall bladder there is no restriction in taking routinely available diet pills rather they will show a better effect without gall bladder as your body will now digest lesser fat and you will pass a more fatty stool. You can consider having HCG injections or ananas pills or other chinese herbs.

Teenage daughter had laparoscopic surgery to remove gall bladder. Wants to resume playing softball now after resting for 2 weeks. Is this safe? She feels good, and the surgeon said probably should wait 2 weeks depending how she feels. Other people tell me that is rushing back too quickly.

i have recurrent episodes of upper center abdominal pain. very targeted (no migration), very severe, barely walk upright. pain "seizes" so think of labor contractions - hurts like heck for 10-45 seconds and then lets up for 30s-3min in a constant cycle. eating hurts, not eating hurts, water hurts. no real nausea or vomiting. episode lasts anywhere from 3 days to a week. 3 days means I started prilosec immediately. diarrhea during this time - almost like my bowels shut down and flush everything (and I mean everything) out.episodes have occurred once every 2-3 years since I was 20.

Past 2-3 years, regular bouts of fatty stool - nearly every day. This has been confirmed with a fecal fat test that was positive. Colonoscopy negative. endoscopy negative. biopsies negative. bloodwork (including pancreatic enzymes) negative. HIDA - biliary dyskinesia - 27%.

Am on prilosec and Creon to see it pancreatic insufficiency is causing fatty stools.

Recommended to have gall bladder out. That's fine - my mom, grandmother, and cousin have all had theirs removed too. However, wondering if the two issues - pain and fatty stool - are related and if perhaps I should be looking at other causes, such as pancreas problem??

I had chlecystectomy surgery about 1 month ago! after the surgery, the symptoms almost cured for 1 week, except for the RUQ pain after meals, but during that time i was still on a fat-free or low-fat diet. now i started eating normal food!!! i have weird bowel habit with occasional steatorrhea, nausea, very mild RUQ pain without radiation of pain to shoulder and dizzines!!!!! :( :(
should i see my doctor for any investigations? or just go for a low-fat diet?? i actually miss eating junk-food :P and fatty foods!!!!
