I was diagnosed with gall stones about six weeks ago. I have had diarrhea ever since. I am considering having surgery to have my gall bladder removed, but will that also help with the diarrhea? I can't understand how the two problems are related.

  • I was diagnosed with gall stones about six weeks ago. I have had diarrhea ever since. I am considering having surgery to have my gall bladder removed, but will that also help with the diarrhea? I can't understand how the two problems are related. I had my diarrhea before and after my gall bladder was removed in Feb.'05. I did not have gall stones. Ask your Doctor, 40% of people who have the GB removed find no alleviation of symptoms (of course they do not tell you that until after surgery). I had nothing solid come out of me for 5 years, until I saw a "Mystery Diagnosis" episode about Habba Syndrome and Cholestyramine. It is a powder packet used to lower cholesterol. I am unable to work and still do not know exactly what is wrong with me. I still have excess bile.
