I have no idea: What you are talking about. If you have an external drain, you should not be drinking 'bile, ' and certainly there is nothing about beer that will help your bladder or pancreas, and there is certainly nothing in either beer or bile that would help your liver or biliary system. Talk to the doctors who did your surgery and perhaps they will have a better idea of what you really mean.
