Just looking for comments on anyone who has been dx with bile reflux, and recommendations to manage and such. I had my GB removed 5 years ago, and since then have had bouts with GI issues ever since. about 3 months ago things became worse than what I have previously experienced: stinging/burning pain R side of the gut and into my back, pressured feeling from the inside (same spot) and feeling very full after small amounts of food. My endoscopic ultrasound 10 days ago showed excess bilious fluid all over the stomach, and something called congested mucosa. I was put on a bile thinner and PPI, and have seen about a 20% improvement. But, my current state is very challenging right now as I cannot eat much at all (bland foods only) and feel so uncomfortable with this pressurized feeling and the associated nausea/pain. I meet with my GI later today to go over things. It seems that without a GB this condition can happen. Key is how to remedy. I know there is a surgical procedure (roux en Y) out there, and would be curious if anyone has done this for bile reflux. Thanks for reading.
