    Take a good probiotic, 50 Billion or more CFU’s. Foods that help are toast, bananas, potatoes. Try some fermented foods and drinks, these are great for the gut. If your gut is healthy, the diarrhoea should subside.

      I haven’t had my gall bladder out, I’ve never heard that. But the feeling I get in my upper right quadrant is a dull ache and sometimes shooting pain. I also feel s if bile is struggling to be released. I’m not sure whether it’s just my gall bladder or liver, maybe fatty liver. Can I ask what your symptoms were for you to get your gall bladder removed? 🤔
