    Unhappy Gallbladder dysfunction diarrhea

    I had chronic diarrhea and was diagnosed with gallbladder dysfunction. I was trying to fix it through nutrition and was comfortable for a month or two but now am miserable with diarrhea again. Has anyone els been diagnosed with gallbladder disease and had chronic diarrhea as your main symptom? If so did you find a cure? If you found a cure what is it? Does gallbladder removal fix it? I am scared to death to go under general anesthesia! Please let me know.

    Re: Gallbladder dysfunction diarrhea

    Initially I had nausea and diarrhea as my main symptoms of gallbladder disease. I was instructed to take a PPI like Nexium, which did seem to settle my stomach down a bit.

    I have been taking a drug regimen on ursodiol and fish oil for 2 1/2 years. Ursodiol can dissolve gallstones and sludge in some cases. It is not a cure as stones will return within several years if the treatment stops. It is a bit expensive, but fortunately I have pretty good insurance.

    Will surgery that removes the gallbladder always fix diarrhea? Not necessarily, however most folks do benefit by having the gallbladder removed. You can certainly adopt a no-fat diet which will cut down on the gallbladder contractions and pain, but the disease will not go away.
