I got my gallbladder removed about 3 years ago. Today I woke up feeling nauses and started to vomit. I have bile in my vomit and diarrhea. Help?
Doubt it's related: Seeing bile in vomitus is common because bile is often in the stomach (it percolates upstream about 4 inches into the stomach). It is unlikely to be related to your prior surgery. The good news is that if you do see bile, it means the "main" bile duct is not obstructed. I'd look for other causes of n/v. (viral, food poisoning, flu, etc.). ...Read more
