Oh, is that your problem (lack of gall bladder)? Go to a GI and get some Welchol. That's the main thing I take for my excess bile (also caused by no gall bladder). It absorbs the bile better than the calcium pills (although some people, like Inape, can get by on just the calcium, I think 6 weeks of D means you need something stronger). Until you can get the prescription, get some Caltrate 600 w/ vitamin D because that should at least help. I use it in conjunction with my Welchol so that I don't have to take so much Welchol. I got started on the calcium after a super-bad reaction to sugar alcohols a couple of years ago and my guts hurt bad and I had diarrhea all the time that even the Welchol wasn't taking care of. In combination with the Welchol, though, the calcium got rid of the pain and balanced me back out. If I start to get constipated, then I drop the calcium pill, but lately I've been needing it. I think it really does help the guts after putting too much bile through it.
