It has been about 1 1/2 years since I had my gallbladder out. Recently, my stool has been soft and sometimes I get diarrhea. The color can be yellow to yellowish orange. I've read that this is common with bile salts diarrhea. That would mean too much bile leaking into the intestines. However I've also read that the yellow color could mean too little bile. I'm confused as to which it could be. I'm more inclined to believe too much since I'm not eating really fatty foods. Any suggestions?
