Diarrhea after eating, abdominal pain.

Posted by @katieb, Jul 16, 2011

Recently I have been getting diarrhea about 15 minutes to an hour after eating. Accompanying this is severe stomach cramps and pain. After a trip to the doctor, they decided that it was my gallbladder causing the symptom. In November, I had my gallbladder removed because it was full of stones and sludge. It has now been 8 months and the symptoms have not went away or decreased. Last week, I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. Biopsies were done on my large intestine and stomach. All results came back negative. I do not want to live the rest of my life with these symptoms. Any suggestions?

Maybe you should keep a food journal to track what foods aggravate your symptoms. I have Crohn’s Disease and this is one of the very first things I did that helped a lot. Another thing might be to cut out all gluten. Not that this is easy to do but I have met a few people online who first thought they had Crohn’s Disease, but ended up with a gluten allergy. Oh one more thing, my brother was having some of the same problem and they first thought he had Crohn’s because I have Crohn’s, but turns out he had Helicobacter pylori which is some strange type of bacterial infection. Hope you find some relief ASAP!

I developed these same symptoms several years back. For almost a year, I thought I was lactose intolerant until a PA suggested I try over the counter probiotics for relief. My symptoms were gone immediately. I began taking Align probiotics which were fairly expensive but later experimented and found similar results with generic Walgreens and CVS brands at a third of the cost.

Get a copy of your colonoscopy report and see what it says about diverticulosis (pockets in your colon). I had the same symptoms and found out I have diverticulitis (inflammed pockets). Not fun. I am trying to learn to control it with my diet.

Do you know if they tested for celiac disease? Those were some of my main symptoms..cramps going to the bathroom after eating. I suggest you ask them if they tested for this!

Avoid wheat, eat gluten-free, no beer, for 1 meal and see if it occurs. If it doesn’t welcome to our gluten-free club.

I have been gluten free for two weeks and still have nausea and it is 3 months post gallbladder surgery—no stones but low functioning gallbladder…

I have all of these symptoms as a result of hiatal hernia surgery and I have been diagnosed with DUMPING SYNDROME. I cannot drink 30 mins before a meal, nothing to drink during the meal and nothing for 30 – 60 mins after. Even with that, I still have the same problems

I am three months post gallbladder removal and I still have nausea alot with pain in my left ribs and back. I have had Ct scans, MRI, Hida scan (which showed low function so I had the surgery), small bowel study, endoscope (showed stomach inflammation), colonoscopy, x-rays of lungs, shoulder and ribs,and abdominal ultrasound as well as three sets of blood work—all normal except the endoscopy—yet my digestion is bad everyday. I lost 12 pounds in 4 months. because i can’t eat a lot—I had the diarrhea but don’t have it much anymore …I take 20 mg. protonix, carafate, plant based digestive enzymes and some probiotics….do you have nausea?
