I had my gallbladder removed in 2016. A few months afterward, I started having abdominal pain when I eat my first meal of the day. It typically comes in waves for about half an hour, but the duration varies. Every now and again, the abdominal pain begins to cause my stomach and my colon to spasm. On those days I typically have to run to the bathroom, after which I tend to find relief. The pain returns every day when I consume my first meal. I usually do not feel pain during my second meal. Along with the abdominal pain, I also have nausea, a full feeling even with a small meal, lethargy, and bloating. I was recently diagnosed with Bile Reflux Gastritis and put on a medication called Carafate. I am reluctant to begin the Carafate due to many bad reviews stating the side effects can be truly awful, along with the fact that the pill is huge and difficult to swallow. I am looking for any advice for how I can treat this in a natural way. I already drink chamomile, ginger, and fennel teas, and I take a digestive enzyme/probiotic blend with every meal. I am desperate to find relief as the pain seems to only be getting worse. I don't leave my home anymore unless absolutely necessary. I cry often due to the pain and stress. I'm afraid to eat, but also have pain if I don't eat. Please help me. Any advice would be appreciated. Feel free to ask any questions. Thank you.
