Just my two cents....
Thanks Titchou, yes i had a very small fat free diet for the first month or so after my operation, unfortunately due to a dropped gall stone in the first operation i later developed a liver abscess in 2008 and ended up with a further full open operation to correct and remove it.
I also had the bile duct widened (where it meets the stomach) done by endoscopy before my gall bladder was removed as stones were getting stuck causes 2 cases of jaundice before i eventually got the operation to have it removed
I’m just amazed that after 7 years my symptoms have gone, trust me i have tried almost every diet going and even became a fitness freak for a year, but the bile salt diahree just continued, hence looking for a medication last year.
