Hello! I am new to this site. I found it by searching for diarrhea problems after gall bladder surgery. I had my gall bladder out 3 weeks ago. Since then I can not eat anything without getting diarrhea that burns and horrible stomach pains. I have been eating mostly fat free muffins and rolls. If I add anything else (fat free pretzels, fat free cereals or turkey) my problems get worse. I have read about Welchol and would like to ask my doctor for a prescription. I want to know though if it will also help with the burning and unbearable stomach pains. I tried Calcium (Caltrate in the pink box) half a pill with each meal and although it seemed to help with the diarrhea it didn't help at all with the stomach cramps or burning. Any info you could give me would be great. Thanks!
