Thu, Feb 27 8:26am · Relentless bile reflux / pain in Digestive Health

Hello, Sorry to hear about your problems after surgery. I had a partial gastrectomy where I had 80% of my stomach removed. They also did a ru en y. My surgery was for bad acid reflux. I previously had a nissen fundoplication which failed horribly. I know since my surgery I have to avoid simple sugar. Protein shakes do cause problems for me. I have found the only ones I can drink are the Atkins shakes because they have no sugar. I can eat fruits fine. I would suggest getting another opinion or 2. When my nissen fundoplication failed I went to the same doctor and he didn't give me much hope. I went to 3 other doctors for opinions. I went online and researched surgeons that specialized in digestive issues, found 3, scheduled appointments and met with them, took all my test results, and met with them to see what they thought would help. Luckily I found a surgeon that had 30 years experience in digestive surgery. He in detail explained and showed me (in drawings) what he could do for me. I had similar symptoms you explained after my nissen fundoplication. Since the partial gastrectomy I had in March of 2019 I am so much better. 210 isnt that heavy. Why did you have the gastric sleeve surgery?

If it's just in the back it's probably something with your back. If it's also in upper abdomen have your pancreas checked.

Bowl movement habits after gallbladder removal will change due to diet. How long has it been since the surgery? The closer to the surgery the more sensitive your digestive system will be.

Stay on them. Sometimes they dont keep track of what can give side effects like that. Good luck.

Dumping and delayed (slow) gastric emptying are complete opposite. Dumping is when your food leaves your stomach too quickly causing diarrhea and delayed gastric emptying is your food sits in your stomach too long and usually causes constipation. H.pylori and c.dif can cause the same symptoms as dumping. I've had both those and usually get treated with antibiotics. I had h.pylori that the antibiotics didn't work on. I ended up doing a natural supplement regimen that took about 90 days to get rid of it.

I had h.pylori in my intestines. The endoscopy biopsy wasn't taken in the intestines. Yes, I had bad diarrhea. I was told the stool test is best for both c.dif and h.pylori.

I would still ask for h.pylori in the stool test. They told me the same once, that I didn't have it but when I had the stool test it was found. Easy to check for if they're already checking for c.dif in stool.
