Hi, I'm sorry to hear you have a new problem after having your op. I think there are a few people, and Denise in particular, who can help regarding the Carafate; maybe you could catch their eye by starting a new thread asking for help with Carafate?

Did your cons suggest anything else like removing your gall bladder or at least testing your gall bladder? Would a low fat diet help reduce the production of bile?

I have not had bile reflux myself, but I'm sure other members will be along soon with their comments on it!

You're understandably cross right now, but I'm sure there will be a way forward for you,

New stuff: GERD. Interstitial Cystitis
Lifelong stuff: Food allergies, eczema, asthma

Hi Joe.

You could try avoiding fatty foods like olive oil steaks, etc.

Try eating whole wheat bread for 2 weeks so if that helps.

Less fatty foods should result in less bile.

Sorry you are going through this Joe. I have been told to add extra fiber to help soak up some of the bile, which is what SK55 is probably suggesting with the bread. Easier to use benefiber or metamucil for me since the carbs can upset my GERD. My bile issue is from GB removal and I can't relate to your surgery but surely the same principals apply. Avoid fatty foods for sure because that will cause more bile dumping.
