At last a diagnosis after two years of tests, a colonoscopy and polyp removal, ct scan, liver scan diagnosing fatty liver, very high cholesterol 12.0 and a gall bladder removal  20 years ago.  I've just had an endoscopy and then a seh cat scan that has now come back saying I need medication as I have moderate bile acid .

malabsorption. When I read this forum it now all makes sense and I cannot understand how a doctor could not come up with this after seeing all my symptoms. I am so relieved and hope the medication helps. My immune system has been so low for so long catching any illness going although I lead a very healthy life style.  Any advice out there please?

    Hey Julie thanks for this info. I went to see my GI doctor wensday & told her how I've still been having this queesy/nausea & she gave me more promithazine to hold me until I see her again in six months. I hope this makes you feel better. I figured it was the bile in my belly too but I can't see in there only God can. I still keep praying for the healing to manifest in my belly & my back as well as I have digenerative disk disease. Also need my left kidney to grow back to it's normal size as it is causing high blood pressure. Let me know if that medication helps. I printed this out for my doctor when I go back and see her. God Bless. Larry.

      praying for you larry for healing. i dont know your age but i would like to suggest something to you. i used to go to the alexander technique. and i would lie on my back for twenty minutes with my knees bent to the ceiling about two shoe sized away from the bum. what that does is the disks in your spine have fluid in them and at the start of the day when we get out of bed they are well filled with fluid as we have been lying down all night but duing the day the fluid between the disks in the spine gets used up and the only way to get it back in is to lie down in whats called semi supine. its very relaxing and lets the spine lengthen. and you can think about each vertebrae seperating from each other and you shoulder blades widening as you put your hand on your hips and let your elbows lie out to the side. this really works as people pay a fortune to go to the alexander technique. maybe you could google it.  im sure it helps as when i do it i always feel more relaxed and longer and wider across the back at the bottom where your kidney are. you just lie on your back and you imagine the the bottom of your back is smiling. if you put your mind into your body you would be amazed what it can do. i hope you dont think im stupid i just know that this works and i feel it would help you too.it seem that your going through so much i hope that you can try this and i know it works for the back. the mind is very underused. if your up to it let me know if you try this and how you get on. all the very best to you larry.🙏❤️

      meant to say feet two shoe sizes away from bum and also just less than shoulder width apart.or whatever feels comfortable. dont spread the feet to far apart.as the knees will fall in and if the feet are to close the knees will fall out.

      Thanks cheeky. I just now read your suggestion about my back. I will try it & see if it helps. I've been writing to so many people about their problems after gallbladder removal that I hadn't looked at who had written to me. Thanks for praying for me as I still have some trouble with nausea & my back has gotten worse since I was in a car roll over accident 4 weeks ago & broke my L1. God bless you & thanks again.

      Would be really interested to know why you are stopping Omeprazole.

      I have to see GP tomorrow for results of a blood test and one of the things he suggested a couple of weeks ago was changing tablets.

      To me if Omeprazole are helping why change them?

      Hi , I don't think I stop the omparazole just yet but I've only just been diagnosed and this powder was advised by my specialist who I go back and see in six weeks so I presume I take both but Omeprazole have not been working properly for years as nothing stays in my body for very long also I take statins for extremely high cholesterol and they have not been working properly either so hoping once I start the treatment all should get back to some normality.
