I have had chronic diarhea for 5 years now after my gall bladder removal. My doctor told me to try Welchol. It has helped greatley with that, but I have had one very embarassing side effect and I don't know how to stop it. I have terrible gas every day. I have tried the gas-x pills and over the counter stuff, but nothing helps. I hate to stop taking Welchol, but I don't know what else to do. Any ideas?
