Dr. Hanif warmly welcomes you with thanks for a consult!

I have carefully worked through your case, and can well realize your health worries. Being your physician, I want to assure, I will take care all of your medical concerns according to the latest medical guidelines.

Gallbladder and the Pancreas are the most important organs for protein and fat digestion in humans. You have no gallbladder and pancreas is problematic and there may definitely be some issue with the secretions of this organ. Its secretions constitute 3% very potent Protein products that are pancreatic enzymes and 97% water and electrolytes. These proteins work normally to digest the food in help with the bile salts.

If this system disrupts due to any reason, it leads to fat and proteins malabsorption and indigestion. That's why you have the issue.

You need to take small meals at pretty regular intervals along with almost no fatty foods and little proteins. Fo helping in digestion and proper motility you need Pantoprazole + Levosulpiride. For nausea you may take help from Ondansetron after consulting your treating physician.

You also need aid through pancreatic enzyme supplementation i.e. Pancrelipase EC to aid in digestion of starches, fats and proteins.

Ask your physician to go for a CT scan to rule out malignancy. He may also check the Tumor Markers for the same.
