I had my gallbladder removed back on 14 Feb. 2000 and I’m still having loose bowels and some nausea. The last few days though I have noticed my bowels are turning black still loose. I left a message with my doctor concerning this and still waiting for his response. Does anyone who had recent gallbladder surgery go through this? Is this normal after this type of surgery? Does it really take years for your body to feel normal again (no more loose bowels,etc.)? Any advice or comments greatly appreciated. I will be glad to hear the response I get back from my surgeon
