The simplest thing to try right now is to buy the Caltrate chewable pills with Vitamin D (make sure you buy the purple bottle, Vitamin D is important for this purpose). Cut them in half, chew one half pill with each meal (ideally 3 half pills each day). Work your way up to one full pill with each meal (ideally 3 full pills in a 24 hour period). A long time member here named inape swears by these Caltrate pills. And they're not expensive, they're quite safe to try. Don't need to be refrigerated either. Also, put a few in your purse or car, so you're never w/o them, when I tried them I bought the small snack size zip lock bags for this purpose. You'll find yourself dining out somewhere and wish you had one of this pills. If you're diligent for 1 week, you may find that all you need are these calcium supplements.
But if they don't work and you are witnessing the yellow bile output, it sounds like Cholestyramine might be what works for you.
Again, I wish you healing and more normal days ahead. It's what I wish for ALL of us.......
