Customer Question
I have had my gallbladder...
I have had my gallbladder removed , a Nissen Fundoplication and gluten free for 1 yr. I eat and then 5 to 15 minutes later, explosive diarrhea. My endoscope was normal. I cannot go out and enjoy life, as I have this diarrhea problem. Help I contacted my Dr. yesterday to see if I should have allergy testing to see what exactly is causing this problem.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
