In brief: Diet

Try to avoid much fried, fatty, greasy foods.
See your doctor about trying medication Questran (cholestyramine) to absorb excess bile.

In brief: Lowfat diet, food al

Sometimes a lowfat diet and probiotics can help lessen this.
Carafate (sucralfate) has been used, but I have had a patient tell me wellcol, a cholesterol med works better. Also try cutting out some foods, like diary or gluten in case you have a food allergy. See a gastroenterologist if you cannot get answers from your surgeon.
