Post Cholesectomy Syndrome or is it EPI

Posted by queenofsting49 @queenofsting49, Oct 17, 2023

In November 9, 2022 I went to the ED for RUQ pain. The ED told me I was passing gallstones. I wasn't. I had cholestasis not cholestitis. They removed my gallbladder and ever since then I have not been able to eat. I sip on juice. The Brat Diet does not work. The Fod Map diet does not work nor do otc anti diarrheal meds. I have diarrhea so much that trying to replenish my vital fluids is too hard. I have been in and out of the ED for dehydration and low potassium. Their of no help to me they say it's chronic, viral etc. I don't believe that. So is it Post Cholesectomy Syndrome or Endocrine Pancreatitis insuffiency? Sorry bout the spelling.

Welcome to Mayo Connect!
You are not alone having problems after gallbladder surgery.
Since you have had serious problem with diarrhea and finding foods that agree with you I think you should find a Gastroenterologist who can evaluate your problems better. We usually recommend other members to find a University Medical Center and contact their Gastroenterology department.
Let’s hope other members with similar problems will respond to your post.


That I do know and thank you. I was in ED last night till 2 am and they keep telling me everything is fine all test are fine. But in yet I had diarrhea 16x Monday and 13x Tuesday. I have been through the ringer trying to find a better GI they have also told me the same. I have been to several University Medical Centers. My Husband says I am a medical mystery. My PCP is having me go to a food allergy center, but that appt. is not until January 2024. My GI is a NP the GI doctor I had left the group. They also had the nerve to ask me if I smoke weed! Hell no! They also blame my weight am only 260lbs. I just want them to stop this madness so I can stop going to the ED. Thanks 4 listening. I wish they would open a Mayo Clinic in my area.
