I'm so thankful that I stumbled upon this site. I'm in the same boat as many of you. Took the drs 6 weeks to find out that my gallbladder was completely dysfunctional with a HIDA scan. Went through with laparoscopic surgery and still having issues 6 weeks post surgery.
Typical day: wake up at 5 am to pee, then have a normal bowel movement. Back up at 5:30 with diarrhea and take a bile binder from the GI specialist. Back up at 6 am with more diarrhea. Drink a protein shake and try to get moving for the day. Probably one more round in the bathroom and then off to work. It's like Groundhogs Day . Usually I can get myself back on track around 10am and I try to eat small healthy meals every 2-3 hours. I also take protonix for reflux.
I'm not so trusting of my drs anymore. I think that they have done all that they can do but they have no answers for how to get over this. It's very upsetting. My husband has been amazing through all of this but it's frustrating since things are soooooo slow to improve. Will I ever get back to normal? How long will it take? Why don't the drs have an answer since so many patients have this after removal?
I take the bile binder and reflux medication. I still have daily diarrhea and my appetite is not normal. I've lost 35 pounds in the 3 months that this has gone on. Today was a bad day and I had to take my nausea medication again. Trying not to get too worked up and keeping up positive thoughts, but it's hard when you don't feel like yourself.
I've seen that a few of you tried acupuncture and felt better. Can you give me more information about this experience? I'm calling tomorrow and have high hopes. I'm also looking into some holistic options.
