Has anyone who has the gb issues to dela with started on this fiber and how did it work out?
I had my gallbladder removed February 1, 2011, so I am almost 11 weeks post op and I am still bothered with excessive belching, bloating. I was using Metamucil but I am currently seeing a Colon/Rectal Specialist for other issues, he suggests switching to Citrucel because it supposedly does not cause the gas and bloating that Metamucil does. So far, it works for me.
