Maybe other community members, who have had the gallbladder surgically removed, may have the same sensation and can share their experiences with you. Welchol is an excellent choice for treating diarrhea associated with gallbladder removal. You might want to ask your doctor if the sensation can be caused by adhesions (scarring around the surgical site) or a missed gallstone in the common duct. Wishing you continued good health!
