    gall bladder

    june this year i had my gall bladder out. i heard a few stories it affects your bowels. i think now this true. i asked my doctor about my diet he said more or less stay the same. before my operation i didn't have a worry in the world and in the last month had a couple slight mishaps. would appreciate anyone with some ideas on how ease this problem.

    What kind of problems are you having? Most people do fine, but some will have problems with loose stools after high fat meals, since gall is used by your body to break up fats into fatty acids for absorption by your body.

    There are food supplements that you can take that will help to break down the fats better and replace somewhat the function of your gall. You may also want to consider probiotics which have helped a lot of people. Ask your GI physician to recommend one for you. It may require a prescription.
