or who have been there and overcome it . Any tips would be great

    I also get sickness. I have been getting these pains after every meal this week.

    Hi Linda,  I had my gallbladder removed 7 months ago. I have terrible bloating, lower gut pain, gas and diarrhea. My diet could not be any blander. I don’t feel like eating, nothing taste good and I know what will more than likely be coming shortly. I don’t drink any soda, eat anything fried, no beef, and basically no fat. I have followed the diet that my surgeon gave me prior to my surgery. I am almost to the point of just giving up. I hate to go anywhere because I never know when my gut is going to go crazy. My internist sent me a prescription for Lomotil but you only take it after the diarrhea starts. My heart goes out to you. I wish I could offer you some help. If you find a miracle cure please let me know.

    I have had nausea since two years gb removal, does yours come as soon as you wake? Mine is getting worse but the diarrhoea is slightly better.  Dont know which is worse.  I am on fodmap diet, hardly eat anything but dried cereal, no dairy, no fat no gluten, only fish and chicken.I would love someone to tell me how to get rid of nausea.  Drs seem even after everyones tests, to just not be able to do anything for us.  Omeprazole and ranitidine didnt work for me.  Really need some advice
