    There are meds to control bile reflux. Ask your Doc to help you out. This is first thing to do get your bile under control. Are you taking meds for gastritis. If not and not working. Also there are a lot of meds for that Also. So be strong and smart about your problems. Hope you try and talk to pcp or get a second opinion. Good luck.

      Hi, I also have bile in my stomach very often which resulted in gastritis and the pain is awful. I had my gallbladder taken out and that's when this started for me. I've done a lot of research for years and tried many medications and there's nothing that can control it. Prokinectics drugs help but as you said can't be taken for long due to side effects. There's sucralfate ( cytoprotective) to protect lining of stomach but it doesn't treat the cause. It's a life long disease chronic and just like you I'm afraid of the gastric cancer it can cause in long term. There's a surgery called duodenal switch ( Deemester) that diverts bile from the stomach without causing too much malabsorption. So if you can't control it like me have a look at that option. This is a really painful condition. God help us
