Bile reflux gastritis refers to the stomach inflammation caused by bile from the pancreas. Patients with reflux gastritis may experience upper abdominal pain, frequent heartburn, nausea and vomiting. The medicines for reflux gastritis include ursodeoxycholic acid, bile acid sequestrants and proton pump inhibitors. Besides, surgery is a common treatment for reflux gastritis. There are two types of surgeries for the disease: anti-reflux surgery (fundoplication) and diversion surgery (Roux-en-Y). It should be noticed that bile reflux gastritis is difficult to distinguish from acid reflux gastritis. But they are different conditions. The acid reflux gastritis is caused by the backwash of stomach acids into esophagus while bile reflux gastritis is cause by bile reflux to stomach. Keywords: bile reflux gastritis
I am like that right now. I ve been like that for 3 weeks.i hate it.
Have you seen a dr and got treated? The treatments include:

Medications
    Ursodeoxycholic acid.This medication helps promote bile flow. It may lessen the frequency and severity of your symptoms.
    Bile acid sequestrants.Doctors often prescribe bile acid sequestrants, which disrupt the circulation of bile, but studies show that these drugs are less effective than other treatments. Side effects, such as bloating, may be severe.
    Proton pump inhibitors.These medications are often prescribed to block acid production, but they don't have a clear role in treating bile reflux.

Surgical treatments
Doctors may recommend surgery if medications fail to reduce severe symptoms or there are precancerous changes in your stomach or esophagus. Some types of surgery can be more successful than others, so be sure to discuss the pros and cons carefully with your doctor.

The options include:
    Diversion surgery (Roux-en-Y). This procedure, which is also a type of weight-loss surgery, may be recommended for people who have had previous gastric surgery with pylorus removal. In Roux-en-Y, surgeons make a new connection for bile drainage farther down in the small intestine, diverting bile away from the stomach.
    Anti-reflux surgery (fundoplication). The part of the stomach closest to the esophagus (fundus) is wrapped and then sewn around the lower esophageal sphincter. This procedure strengthens the valve and can reduce acid reflux. There is little evidence about the surgery's effectiveness for bile reflux.

It's not clear how many people develop the frequent loose, watery stools that characterize diarrhea after surgery to remove their gallbladders (cholecystectomy). Studies have found that up to 20% of people undergoing gallbladder surgery develop diarrhea.

In most cases, the diarrhea stops soon after the surgery. Rarely, it may last for years.

The cause of diarrhea after gallbladder removal isn't clear. Some experts believe that it results from an increase in bile, especially bile acids, entering the large intestine — which may act as a laxative.

Treatments you and your doctor may consider for controlling your diarrhea after cholecystectomy include:

Anti-diarrheal medications, such as loperamide (Imodium A-D)
Medications that impair absorption of bile acids, such as cholestyramine
Talk to your doctor about your options and whether additional tests are recommended. Generally, mild diarrhea after cholecystectomy is not cause for concern, but speak to you doctor if you are losing weight; have bloody diarrhea, diarrhea that awakens you from sleep, fever or significant abdominal pain; or have diarrhea lasting more than a few weeks.

You may also consider limiting foods that can make diarrhea worse, including:

Caffeine
Dairy products
Greasy foods
Very sweet foods
