I had my gallbladder out over 1.5 years ago. I have struggled with diarrhea ever since. It always hits after my first meal of the day. Most days it is tolerable, but some are not. Almost all of my stools feel acidic regardless of their consistency. Sometimes it hits hard and fast. Meaning I have 10 mins to get to the restroom. Today it happened and I tried to push it to get home, and I'm embarrassed to say I didn't make it. That was a first for me. And it's really bugging me that I couldn't just hold it. Now admittedly I screwed up today. I ate nothing from 7pm yesterday till 11:30am. And my first thing I ate was a bloomin onion from outback. Fried food is a big no no. And I've literally never done that before. It was a dumb choice.
I'm very resistant to taking meds. So other than trying to eat something high in fiber early in the day, what other solutions are there? Fiber does seem to help me, but I'd like other suggestions.
