    Has anyone used cholestyramine for Bile reflux? My doctor is having me try it. Wanted to check if anyone had luck with the medication. I'm 12 weeks post TG. Been having horrible Bile reflux with vomiting. Thank you

    I'm 4 years post-TG. I have learned from experience that when I start to feel nauseous when I am eating, I need to slow down. If the nausea goes away, I can take another bite. If it doesn't, that's the end of my meal for at least a couple of hours. The nausea always goes away after 20-30 minutes. Who else works like me?
