I suffer with DD plus  I  had  my  gallbladder  removed  2 weeks ago.

I'm  suffering  from  awful  stomach  cramps  and  diarrhoea. 

I don't know if it's  DD or  gallbladder  related.    Any  ideas  please. 

Anyone else get this with DD   ? 

Thanks

    I suffer DD and just finished 10 days of one antibiotic, I had my gallbladder removed over 20 years ago. With gallbladder removal for  awhile after wards you can get diarrhea  especially with certain foods like lettuce and other foods. I had my gallbladder removed when they gutted you k=like a pig had 37 staples! Now they just do a little slit and suck it out! I have internal scar tissue from it!. Whens last time you had to be on antibiotics from DD infection? 2 weeks ago is not enough time to heal up from the surgery you will gradually learn which foods will give you the ruins, I feel its your gallbladder doing it, but to be safe I would call the doctor and explain it to him/her so they can reassure you or if need be see you again.

      I just finished up of been on 10 days of Bactrim antibiotic . The Flagyl  has way to many side affects for me to handle.  Which one are you taking now? Are you doing both antibiotics are one?

      I'm on co amoxiflav  but  it makes me  feel  sooo sick. 

      I can't cope with  the  side effects  of  others.

    Your gallbladder stores bile.  Bile is reabsorbed into the bloodstream through the gut.  There is a condition called malabsorption of bile which can cause diarrhoea.  I had my gallbladder removed five years ago and suffered this following a resection earlier this year.
