    Symptoms subsided
    Anon_236788 posted:
    It's been almost 7 or 8 years since my gall bladder surgery and within the first two years, I did have some minor attacks. I did not follow doctors advice and did not change my eating habits. I ended up having "dumping syndrome" because of it. It's when you suddenly discharge large amounts of bile right after eating fatty foods or food high in sugar or bad carbs. The symptoms with that is fatigue, dizziness, nausea, cramping, sweating. I eventually started exercising and eating right. I ate mostly food that were natural and did not have any preservatives or artificial ingredients. I lost over 50 lbs and haven't had any attacks and very few symptoms with excessive bile dumping. Feel free to reply to this if you have any other questions.
