I had my gall bladder removed about two years ago. I had mild diarrhea at first, and then it got worse. I noticed a trend though. I am currently unable to have any sort of caffeine or spicy food without having raging and painful diarrhea very soon after. It’s a pain in the neck. It’s rediculously sensitive to the caffeine too. I had a finger of some chocolate icing once and I was in the bathroom for about two hours after.
