Having had my gallbladder removed in October 2012, I have had IBS for 30 years and managed well with diet and medications, but since having my gallbladder removed, I have had an increase in my diarrohea, every time i am eating there is a rush to the loo. Even my medication is not working on slowing the bowel down, and even when I am eating the foods that never affect my IBS are now affected.
I have spoken to my surgeon who did the operation, and he advised that you can have diarrohea for about 3 months but this will settle, but when I said yesterday when I seen him that i am still having diarrohea he said that this was not good, and was to refer me to a gastro consultant, He did mention that it might be Bile Salts but could not be sure, as again this usually settles 3 months post op.
I am hoping that it is not that my IBS has now got worse by this operation, or that there is another problem to my long list of condiitons I have.
has anyone had this problem or can anyone suggest what it might be?
