Don’t despair things WILL get better. I had the same operation..it takes time for the body to adjust

Mon, Jan 28 7:24am · Unexplained diarrhea,malabsorption,dizziness,feeling faint, confusion in Digestive Health

When your gallbladder is removed some surgeons are very quick to remove gallbladders by the way..
your bile goes directly in the small intestins which acts as a natural laxative..hence your diarrhea..
You should also be tested by an allergist to see what you are either intolerant or allergic to. When that is done bring the info to a nutritionist who will guide you as what the best diet is in your casre
Good luck🍀🍀

Yes I find fructose & lactose really aggavate my IBS
Symptoms..is it a normal part of aging to develop intolerances such as gluten lactose ftuctose plus difficulty digesting fat because of a lack of digestive enzymes…Are all Seniors affected?

Mon, Jan 21 7:56am · Need Patient's Experience with Mayo Clinic. Is it worth it? in Visiting Mayo Clinic

It can be very expensive..i was in Jacksonville last year & the blood tests alone which they always do were $3000.00 an Mri pelvic & abdominal was almost $8000.00.,I am self pay so I try to get estimates ahead of time from their Intl dept..used to be easy at Rochester but now it seems to become more & more difficult,,,also they cannot tell you how much for a surgery because it depends what they find it is wonderful if money is no object otherwise…

I would be very surprised if you could not find chicken potato & rice at the Mayo cafeteria itself or as suggested at the Kahler hotel

So sorry for you: terrible that we have to stay away from ER’s when we badly need them because of interminable & inhuman waiting times.
Be wary of Quinolones like Cipro..Gailfaith is right..beside tendon rupture they can make you feel suicidal even if you never had a history of depression. Pls get some help asap!

Dear Maet: I totally agree with you. I had exactly the same problems you had also had the laparascopic colectomy in Jacksonville eat a high fiber diet like you..lots of water an hour walk everyday & also have my activia lactose free everyday in Canada.. cannot find lactose free in Florida wonder why.,have not had a div attack since 6 yrs thank God! The antibiotics were killing me especially the quinolones! I lost 25 pounds thought I would die..unfortunately I now have to deal with a stricture from scar tissue..from the surgery?? Or inflammation.,a different set of problem so far not as bad
