I was very glad to read this I had my gallbladder removed when I was 17 (right after my first child). I have been dealing with stomach pain and diarrhea since then! It has been horrible. I to can not leave the house and if I do I regret it. The last two months have been very severe. I also take imodium which works well. I need to go to the doctor I really feel like they should be able to prescribe all of us something to fix this problem. 7 years of this is long enough!!!!!
