Suffering from indigestion after gallbladder removal.
Hello, I have been suffering from indigestion more than usual after gallbladder removal. The doctor has given me a tablet. Is there one who experienced the same after the gallbladder removal? Is it common to experience indigestion after gallbladder removal? Why? I am also experiencing heartburn. Is it also because of gallbladder removal? Please suggest an effective solution that will help me improve my condition. Thanks!
@hun-1 Hello, It is not uncommon for patients to experience bile reflux after gallbladder removal. Studies show that bile reflux occurs in 80% to 90% of patients who have had gallbladder surgery. So, you're actually more likely to have bile reflux after having your gallbladder removed. Acid reflux can often be treated with simple lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or changing your diet. Try reducing or removing certain trigger foods such as chocolate, citrus, garlic, onions, spicy and fatty foods, tomatoes, alcohol, and caffeinated drinks. Consult your doctor. Thanks!
