I had my gallbladder removed in September. I've been experiencing increased acid reflux symptoms since. Could this be healed by taking bile salts?

Acid reflux. Acid reflux may be a separate problem, more noticeable since your gallbladder surgery. Start with TUMS (calcium carbonate), (calcium carbonate) they are inexpensive and available without prescription. Then get in to see your regular doc, report the results with TUMS (calcium carbonate). You may need a prescription or EGD, (a scope to look at esophagus and stomach). Be well.
