    If you have had your gallbladder removed like I have then yes I do have persistent yellow stool, continuous bloating and very ill ever since removal. I do also have severe ibs and my Dr. says the removal of the gb has exacerbated my ibs.

      No. Dr. said ibs, food coloring in meds, rapid transit of stools, bile from gallbladder or liver not able to add pigment to stool or pancreas problems can be an individual cause.

      yes i have had mine removed and intermittent yellow stools together with bloating and feel nauseous since then. i have ibs-d also. dr doesnt seem to be able to do much about it but refer for more tests which i dont want. so i guess im stuck with these symptoms, which were not bad before it was taken out. one of the unlucky ones.

      One of many unlucky ones. There are many more people suffering with this syndrome than one realizes. I have never been so sick in my life. When I got gastritis doctors didn't know. Tests were done with me still on Aciphex so I think that whole endoscopy was a waste because nothing is accurate if on medicine

      I too have had it with all the tests and all the false results. I get too sick each time and it is always the same "could be" answers but no positive ones. Had enough. Too sick for any more tests.

      yes, i quite agree. i am at the end of my tether with all the problems the gallbladder removal has caused me. i wish the drs who administer this op would get these symptoms and they might realise how they make people suffer. because of this i cannot live a normal life, can you? Doing things like meals with friends are nogo and im now suffering from depression with it all.
