hi- gang- i am one of those who do not have a GB since 1991 when they took it out was full of stones via laprascope when it was a new procedure....for the first yr i had D every time after i ate something. then it went away as my body adjsuted to not having a GB and believe me i am VERY happy that it is out and gone!!!!! i do not miss my GB, appendix, or tonsils!!!!
but i do have the yellow bile also (alternating between D & C Still) and GERD, so i take zantac for that b/c it is the onlything i can tolerate, i tired acphiex for 2 yrs which helped me but i heard it was tough on the liver and thought i had everything under control, i lost some weight which helped also, and if lose some more it will probably help me again since i put it back on....
so welchol huh? i think i will give my GI man a call and ask him to see if i can get on this, tell me does it hlep cut down on the acid in the stomach also or will i need to keep taking zantac also?
