Do the gastro Dr's really know what to prescribe?
A little background first. Two years ago my gallbladder was removed. Since then I have had horrible bouts of diarrhea. My Dr told me I have IBS-d from the bile dumping.
My Dr has basically given me the choice...Questran (which gives me bad headaches and terrible indigestion) Imodium (which has really helped taking just 1 a day) or Bentyl (as needed, but I haven't tried it yet)
I've been doing fine on 1 Imodium every morning but I can't skip a day. I'm not a pill taker and Bentyl scares me. In fact all that Imodium even scares me. What has been your experience with these meds?
Thanks for any input.
I want my gallbladder back...grrrr!
