The Gallbladder is:

Gall bladder removed in july, found I have to take digestive enzymes (heath store) or i regurgitate food. Take prevacid (lansoprazole) 15mg for poss. Reflux. Normal?
Different problems.: Gallbladder disease tends to be distinct from gastritis or gerd with regurgitation. A ppi drug like Prevacid (lansoprazole) should be used short-term only if possible. I would consider a gerd workup, to include upper endoscopy (egd), and then perhaps other studies to evaluate your symptoms of regurgitation, that may be resolved with medical or surgical therapy. ...Read more

Digestive enzymes: If you are on digestive enzymes who is giving these to you? You may wish to see a gastroenterologist to determine exactly what is going on. Lab tests may shed some light on this as well. ...Read more

Yes, on empty stomac: All levothyroxine, including Levoxyl brand, should be taken on an empty stomach (http://www.drugs.com/dosage/levoxyl.html). Digestive enzymes shouldn't affect absorption. More important for you to take consistently and have TSH (blood test) monitored regularly and at least 6wks after dose changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Food is coming back up my throat sometimes (usually when i don't take a digestive enzyme) had endoscopy; GI said nothing abnormal. ?
GER without GERD: Of the 70 million americans with reflux, about half have symptoms without esophageal inflammation. Your recently-negative endoscopy just put you in that category. The best treatment for ger (gastroesophageal reflux without disease), aside from behavior & diet modification (answered previously on healthtap), is use of acid blocker drugs (not "enzymes" which can hurt you depending on their potency). ...Read more

If i take a digestive enzymes supplement, (protease, amylase, etc) will that go into my breastmilk and hence my baby would get the benefits of it too?
Good nutrition : The digestive enzymes may help you with food absorption but are broken down by your intestinal lining before they enter your bloodstream in significant quantities ( though some are present in the blood in low levels in healthy adults (high levels could indicate a medical condition)). Your baby's brain will thank you for the dha. Thank you for breast feeding your baby! ...Read more

Worth a try but...: Everyone has some flatulence; this occurs when undigested food is fermented by bacteria & yeast in the intestines. Enzymes may improve digestion; some need BetaineHCl as well. Probiotics may help, as well as drugs or herbs to treat dysbiosis. Some benefit from a low FODMAPs diet.
