Itching After Gall Bladder Removal -Bile Salts?
I had my gallbladder out 2 1/2 months ago. Aside from pains here and there, I was feeling better. Last week and today, I have had intense itching all over my skin. I searched this and found that itchy skin can be from too much bile salt...the same thing that can cause "bile salt diarrhea" which I had from eating too much fat a few weeks ago. Well, yesterday I ate a fatty meat sandwich and am wondering if this is what's causing the itching. This is much more annoying than the pain!
I know there are blood tests they can do to measure bile salts and I may have to ask for that if this continues. Has anyone ever had this or know more about it? I am hoping it's just something in the air...my friend and her husband are itching like crazy today also, as well as last week when I was. It's driving me crazy, any comments would be appreciated.
