    I was warned that I would probably get diarrhea after the op. Your body needs to adjust to not having a gallbladder, hopefully over the next few weeks things will calm down for you. If not ask your GP for something to help with it. Looking at the positive, it's great to be pain free - just take things easy x

    Hi Julie probably to

    Do with the operation. Stick to low fat diet for now and see does it settle itself. You can expect diarrhea for the first few weeks. This is normal and should go away itself. If it gets worse try caltrate calcium 600 d half a tablet 3 times a day with food. The calcium soaks up the bile that causes the diarrhea. It may be just a one off so don't panic just yet. Keep us posted. Take care x
