Specializes in Gastroenterology

Cholecystectomy: depending on the study, 5-40% of patients have some abdominal symptoms after cholecystectomy. How to treat yours depends on the cause. Patients with primarily diarrhea would be treated differently than those with primarily pain. initially, you should see your gastroenterologist, but you might consider trying a high-fiber diet just to see if it works, in the meantime. Good luck.
