About a year ago I had my Gallbladder removed after a bout with gallstones. For the past several months I have had sever diarhia with sever cramping and my stools and accompaning liquid have been green. I do not eat anything with blue dye as I know this can be a cause.
You don't have gall bladder. So you don't have any enzymes to digest cholesterol . If you take any food containing meat, it will not digest, and pass like loose stools. Passing of loose stools may cause loss of electrolytes. Which causes your cramps. Modify your diet into a fibre rich one and take plenty of oral fluids

Hi doctor, I m 23 and my husband and I had sex during my fertile days of the month. I am a week away from my period but for a couple of days I. Have had diahrrea and very bad stomach cramps. The cramps are on my left side and around my belly button. I was also very nausaed. Could it be a chance I am pregnant?
over a week ago I suddenly experienced a lot of gas and bloating that resulted in 2 days of diarhea and cramping. After this I was unable to have a BM for a week. The 7th day I began to bloat and be gassy again but did have a BM. It has been 4 days since then and finally had another BM but had gas and bloating again before. Each time I had consumed milk products the day before onset of symptoms. First time the diarhea was so bad I had bloody loose stools for a day after and when I was able to have a regular BM there was blood clots with the stool. I am wondering if possibly my digestive system, which has always been very strong, castiron stomach so to speak!, could be experiencing a lactose intollerence for a bit? Suggestions?
I was just diagnosed with Crohn s Disease last March, 2014, with 8 ulcers. Was started on Prednisone and Pentasa, which seemed to help quite a bit immediately, but after 3 weeks, I began having sporadic bouts of diarrhea and cramping every several days or so. In May my doctor stopped the Pentasa and started me on an immunosuppressant. The sporadic problems continued; then abouot 4 days ago, daily cramping and diarrhea started again. Is there something else I should be doing to help? What diet changes should I make to help?
I have gallbladder stones, can they be the problem I m having that every few minutes I feel like I have to pee. When I do pee, very little is coming out. In the mornings I pee like normal, like nothing is wrong and then it starts. It doesn t burn when I go. Sometimes when I wipe there is pink on the toilet paper. The urine looks normal in the bowl. No odor. I have no pain anywhere. What can this be? Can it be related to premenopausal as well?
Hello Dortor, Thank you for doing the night schedule and your dedication. Isn t the some test in the blood test, called a sedimentiary (SP) test, I think, that tells that there is problem with the liver or gallbladder? About 20 years ago I had two gallstones and because of these tests in the blood tests, I number or % listed as the average marker what ever test is was used to be on the low edge and then went to normal the last 6 years. Had blood tests 1 or more times each year. Nothing more was ever said. I don; t have heartburn or anything a gallbladder digestive than one would have. Jan. 7-10 I had a scale 9 pain spaisms, where my kidnes are, a fever On the 10 I went to the ER and spent 2 days and one night in the Hospital. By a scan then sonar they found I had a serious inflamed gallbadder. Surgeon said it had to be operated on. Did that Feb. which will have two weeks this Fri.. The night of the operation there was a snafu at the pharmacy and the Dr. on duty did not ask my surgeon to please call me ASAP for I had no pain medicine. This wasn t done, altho one pharmcist said he was really angry with me. He denyed this. Make along story shorter, I went through 26 hrs of 8.5 pain and by the way I have a high pain tolerance. Ok, how come I didn t have any pain, discomfort no symptons and not test indications I was having problems until it seriously inflamed. after the operation The surgeon the ballbladder was in really bad shape. Thank you and God Bless, I now have an infection, swolling around the navel, pus,blood, swelling. I have it bandaged. The Dr. pushed all the pus out of it around the naval. Very Painfu. Thanks again
My husband, age 76, has had dizziness, right hand tingling, occasional headaches, and feeling nausea. He has had this for about a year now. His energy level is very low after doing a small chore. He has had CT scans (head), ultra sounds of the stomach which proved he has a polyp on his gallbladder. He had his prostate (cancerous) out about 9 years ago. He had 33-34 radiation treatments for this and was put on hormone treatment for two years. His blood pressure is normally fine and blood test show bilirubin normal although he has gall stones contained within the gallbladder. His doctor believes that he has the onset of Parkinson s disease but a specialist he was sent to says no. One other doctor also does not believe he has Parkinson s disease. So - what is wrong? He is becoming baffled as to what is happening to him. Please can someone help.
I have sharp pain that comes and goes near my belly button, maybe down and a little to right. I have had this on and off for years, but certain times I ll have an attack. Now is one of those times and probably worst ever lasted for over 12 hrs sharp pain when it comes is a 10, coming and going from 15 min intervals to maybe an hour, no consistency, always have diarrhea with it, but again this time completely watery. I am 41 years old. When I have gone to doctors they schedule colonoscopy endoscopy, but they can t find anything cause my symptoms are gone by then, attack is over, so they find nothing.Closest thing my doctor suggested was gall bladder sludge that may be irritating my bowl or bile duct . My lipids were elevated during attack so he said it may also be irritiating my pancreas . How do I know if it is my bowl or gallbladder.
I'm male and 48 years old. I had blood work for a physical last week and everything was perfect except for a moderately elevated Alkaline Phosphatase at 214. All other liver enzymes, blood work, and urine were perfectly normal. I have no symptoms...
