If the gallbladder is removed, bitterness in the mouth is considered a frequent companion of the patient. Not only bitterness in the mouth begins to appear, but also dry mouth after surgery to remove the gallbladder. A key predisposing factor for persistent bitterness in the mouth after bile has been removed is the transfer of food from the intestines back into the abdominal cavity. This mass is a substance that is saturated with bile secretion and stomach acid. That is why there is a strong bitterness in the mouth if the bile ducts are overloaded.

Why does a bitter taste appear in the mouth? After cholecystectomy, there is often a bitter taste in the mouth. This is one of the symptoms of postcholecystectomy syndrome. In the abdominal cavity, the substance begins to cause painful sensations, heaviness, burning. The body reflexively tries to remove the internal contents, resulting in nausea and vomiting.

Peristalsis intensifies, the mass is mixed with a huge amount of acid and thrown secretion. As a result, there is bitterness in the mouth. Especially often, this symptom occurs after eating. The causes and treatment of this condition are directly related to each other, since the duration of therapy and the treatment algorithm will depend on the severity of the symptoms. It is very important to see a doctor to get rid of unpleasant symptoms. Bile, which was previously in the cavity of the organ, begins to be thrown into the intestinal tract and into the epigastric region.

Another reason for the sour taste in the mouth is an increase in the concentration of bilirubin in the absence of a gallbladder. Lipid acid in the mouth is not the only cause of an unpleasant condition. The bitterness that appears in the mouth is provoked by the fact that bile stagnates in the tissues of the liver and in hepatocytes for a long period of time, due to which the concentration of this substance increases significantly.

The liver cannot cope with this substance after the treatment of cholecystitis, as a result of which it continues to be in the general bloodstream for a long time. The result is intoxication with toxic substances, the mouth cavity is filled with a bitter taste. Another reason that there is unpleasant sensations in the mouth after removal of the organ is that the pancreas does not function normally. Gallstone disease causes the development of various disorders in the digestive system. With radical treatment of this ailment, certain complications arise, they are expressed in stagnation, pathological reactions.
