    Hi Linda,

     So sorry to hear of the GB complications. I have not had to deal with what you have it must drive you nuts. 

    Can u take Imodium to control the diarrhea . Drinking lots of water is important to avoid dehydration. Also can you drink jello water to control the 

    the diarrhea. There are also OTC meds for gas, ask ur dr if they are ok. 

    Do you know why all the extra bile and gas. I can't imagine how miserable you must be. The dr should help with a liquid diet until this clears up. call the office and ask for further info if needed to help control gas and ask for enzymes that can be prescribed  helped me after my GB  was removed. The GB provides certain enzymes that helps break up foods once removed it takes time for our bodies to adjust.

    i hope there are others here that can give you more options.

    Keep me posted  take care.
