QUESTION
 
For the past 10 days I have tried the Calium 600 +D to stop the bile salt diarrhrea. (Post gallbladder surgery 10-31-08)
I do not think it is working as well as cholestryamine.
 
(My GI had me off it during a cold , when we were not sure where the muscle aches came from. Since I still have the aches , I think the aches came form the cold.)
 
My question is I will l restart the cholestryamine tonight- any ideas on how to stop the rumbling, the gas? I find I have to take it after supper and stay in the house , because I do not dare take it during the day if I have to  go out. Too much rumbling and gas
 
Also is anyone on both cholestryamine and Calltrate 600+D?
I feel as if I am stuck in the hosue mor eoften than not.
Thank you
Betty

Questran is known to cause gas in people, and as far as I know, it doesn't get better, doesn't go away, and there's not much help for it, except to use gas relief pills.

I take Welchol for my bile diarrhea and don't have gas or any other problems. And yes, I take it and calcium too.

I am wondering if Caltrate stops the gas

No, as far as I am aware, calcium has no effect on gas. I have used chewable gas relief tablets in the past to pretty good effect; they're cheaper than Gas-X and you can take them wherever you are, without water.
