A slip of the foot you may soon recover,
but a slip of the tongue you may never get over.
I know you posted for Kitt, but I saw this and couldn't help myself.
I had my gallbladder taken out in 2001, and have experienced bouts of diarrhea, but not all the time. It took over a year, for my body to adjust to the surgery and for things to get better. It takes some people longer before things calm down. But in your case it has been going on for a long time, and I think you should contact you Dr. asap and make sure eveything is alright. It a good thing that you are drinking lots of water, that will keep you hydrated.
Hi there. Good info from Olivia :)
You may have the following problem causing your diarrhea.
Postcholecystectomy syndrome (PCS) sometimes occurs when abdominal symptoms develop after surgery to remove the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). Between 5% and 40% of people who have the gallbladder removed may experience this syndrome.
Symptoms of postcholecystectomy syndrome may include:
You can ease diarrhea by taking the medicine cholestyramine. This is a Rx med prescribed by your physician. References: Glasgow RE, Mulvihill SJ (2002). Surgical management of gallstone disease and postoperative complications.
Drink the Gator Aids or whatever your choice is as you need the electrolytes for your body. Some examples of electrolytes are sodium, potassium, chloride, and calcium. Electrolytes are primarily responsible for the movement of nutrients into cells and the movement of wastes out of cells. Electrolytes can be lost when someone has diarrhea.
Ok, off my soap box. J J
