I had a baby in August, 2010 and am breastfeeding. I joined weight watchers in November and had been successfully loosing weight until February when I had my gall bladder removed and have been gaining weight slowly. I have not changed my eating habits, sticking carefully to the weight watchers program.
I have talked to my doctor and he said there is no relationship between gall bladder removal and weight gain. I have found other women that have had the same issues with gall bladder removal and weight gain and found that taking bile salts could possibly help.
Since I am breastfeeding, I am not sure I can take the bile salts. Do you have any information on possible side effects and if I can take this while breastfeeding?
