Hi Melissa and welcome to the board.



I have not had any experience with digestive enzymes. Hopefully someone else here can give you some information.



It is not really that bile builds up in your system and needs to be broken down, though. When you have a functioning gall-bladder it stores bile until it is needed to break down certain foods, such as fats. When needed it then releases the bile. Without a gallbladder the bile is just released into the bowel as it is produced, whether it is needed or not and there is no bile stored for that extra help when fatty foods are eaten.

My doctor never recommended such a thing... I just had my gb removed last month.
