If you have had your gall bladder removed owing to gallstones, you may experience digestive problems for a while: there may be urgency of bowel movement; looseness of stools; aches and pains in the abdomen. The symptoms are caused by the irritating effect of bile that is released into the digestive tract all the time, even in the absence of food. Make sure you eat little and often, and with each meal have a small amount of food that contains fat (e.g. cheese, meat, fish, salad with a dressing, etc.). The idea is to make use of your bile to digest fat, thus reducing the ‘unused’ bile which irritates the bowels. You can also drink soothing, demulcent herbs as teas to reduce the irritation.
