joe, i have refluxed what i think... and have been told... is bile, thank goodness only rarely, what an awful taste...i sympathize with you

im no doctor

but i thought bile acids were secreted into the upper part of the small intestine

if you had bile in your stomach that would suggest to me that the pyloric sphincter is opening at the wrong time

i would ask my doctor what could explain bile in the stomach

hang in there

Hi joe, how are you?
I heard that you are having Delayed Gastric Emptying before the fundo. Can i know what to expect after the fundoplication?
Is it better/resolve the DGE or it even worst?

Hope you have a good day.

Hi Joe,

I haven't undergone the proper testing to see what I am refluxing. However, I wonder if I might also be refluxing bile? Are there any particular symptoms associated with bile reflux, such as a certain taste in your mouth?
Feel Good,

Bile tastes bitter vs. the sour taste of acid. My body produces extremely high amounts of bile since my gallbladder was removed.

Take care,

Hey Bill,

Thanks so much for responding. I don't think I have ever had a bitter taste in my mouth, but I do get an occasional burning in the throat and regurgitation, despite aggressive PPI therapy.

Hope you're feeling well.


Feel Good,
