I parted company with my gall bladder years ago. I had and still have diarrhea. Not all the time, but when I do it goes on and on no matter what I eat. I am never constipated. A gastroenterilogist diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome and advised me to use stool softeners and eat a diet to keep my stool soft. May he rot in the same garbage can from which he pulled his “trashcan diagnosis” and lose the hearing he apparently has no use for. Constipation would be a relief.
