So for the last 16 years I have had horrible GI problems of various sorts. 3 years ago I had my gallbladder removed. Before it was removed I used to get chronic constipation to the point where I ended up in the hospital many times. Then after the gallbladder was removed I ended up with chronic diarrhea. I tried seeing GI doctors over the years but they all said that it was probably IBS and they told me to just eat more fiber. I completely forgot that the surgeon who removed my gallbladder diagnosed me with bile salts diarrhea 3 years ago. I saw a new GI doctor 3 weeks ago and he wanted me to start on a regimen of PEG, Senna plus, and fiber supplements everyday for a month because I had been constipated since Thanksgiving. I took the meds and within 36 hours of taking the meds I got really really sick to the point where I was throwing up. They told me to stop taking the meds but to continue taking the fiber supplements. I told the doctor that I had bile salt diarrhea and he said that it's probably not likely because it's a rare condition. He asked me if a GI doctor had diagnosed me with it and I said no the surgeon did and he laughed. He was very unhelpful and very rude. There's meds for bile salts diarrhea but my insurance doesn't cover them and one week's worth of meds is at least $100. I don't have that kind of money. So I guess I have to learn to live with this right? Fun times.
