Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes you can develop symptoms from excess bile acid in the stomach.
In the absence of gallbladder, bile goes to the small intestine directly from the liver where bile is produced.
Excess bile can go to the stomach as well.
Nausea, diarrhea, bloating are common symptoms.
These symptoms can be treated with bile acid sequestrants like cholestyramine.
Cholestyramine binds with excess bile in the stomach and relieves the symptoms.

Is there a test I can have to prove it is the bile

Bile is green in color and they can aspirate it from the stomach to test it.
