Hi

I am new to the site and hope you can offer some advice, 5 years ago i had my Gallbladder out 2 days after the op recovering at home i had a sudden sharp pain in the center of my back and down my right arm i was taken to A&E where i was rushed to theater the Surgeon hadn't clipped off my Bile Duct correctly this led me to have a Lobotomy cut from the Rib cage down to the Belly Button and when they opened me up i had 2 pints of Bile floating around inside my Tummy, I spent 2 weeks recovering in Hospital and was was very poorly.

Since then i have had Diarrhea several times a day and spend my life around a toilet I have had Colestramine and Questrian sachets but nothing helps, I am seeing the Consultants in a couple of weeks to see if he can offer me any new treatment I also have Malabsortion of Bile Salts my question is.... are there any new treatments out there

Thanks JC

    I'm okish I suppose, thanks for asking, although having a bit of a blip at the moment. I will be seeing my doctor mid April and expect her to be her usual non committal self.

    How are you?

    Yes gallbladder after attending my grand daughters christening, eating all the wrong things. This was immediately after a mini break in Venice where the food was strange to say the least. and the water smelt and tasted floral!

    Well, its unbelievably simple - i fell.

    It was raining, i was walking fast, there was a curve around a bend on the pavement which is slighly sloped and the grip under my shoe has faded.

    It didnt hurt much when i fell - just felt like a bad fall and the wrist felt a bit light and some tingling for about 5 minutes so i just took pain killers when i realised after 2 days the pain keeps coming back and my arms goes back to its bendy state i thought its time to go to the doctor but an appointment with the doctor would be 2 weeks away so i went to hospital A&E where they found its broken in an unusual way

    hey, how do you know thats ? thats exactly what the doc said in in the fracture clinic because i was being reluctant about the surgery (- more scared of the general anaethestic than the surgery itself)
