I have had gastric bypass and layer had my galbladder removed, and was very I'll because the bile was leaking in my abdominal area was hospitalozed for 5 days and had a drain tube for a month.. I have never felt the same sence.. nobody seems to know what is going on with me..as I read about t b is bile refflux.this makes sence.. what kind of a Dr would I need to see to be check for this?
A few there are, including endoscope, ambulatory acid tests, esophageal impedance. All are invasive.
When I burp it smells like bile but I don't know if that is what it is. I have acid reflux for years. My top part of my stomach it feels yucky. It happenes like every couple months just don't know for sure what it is.
Sounds like bile reflux esophagitis, better see a gastroenterologist

Betsy I too am having the same problem I had my gallbladder our before my gastric bipass surgery. I always refered to it as acid reflux till today I went for my route colonospy and was asking the Dr about my other problems and he said are you sure its not bile reflux tgat your experiencing cause it is very common with tgat surgery and not have a gallbladder. I was line omg yes it it bile that comes up and burns out my ears I cant talj or cough makes it worse. He tells me there isnt much to do for it and medication doesnt help it. Tells me dont eat anything a few hours before bed and to eat oyster crackers on a empty stomach that a older gentleman told him help and he said it makes sence cause ir will help absorbed the bile between meals and then he said eat welch cookies its like the same dough. I would love to chat with you on how you are doing i am over 10 yrs out. You can find me on facebook too
