No change in diet required. Ask your doctor.

Fairly detailed guidelines on all sorts of things are given to all surgery patients. Didn't you receive any, either verbally or in writing?

he should have recived a dietary plan or should have a follow up with a nutritionalist...
for the most part he can eat 'normally" but will have to watch his fat intake. too much fat will lead to an upset stomach and bloating.

he'll also likley want to avoid anything overly spicey, anything known to cause gas (too many beans) and anything high in salt...

typically after galbladder surgery most drs want the patient on a lower carb higher protein low sat fat diet.

your welcome, gallbladder removal is a common side effect after weightloss surgery so its something i did some reserch into before having gastric bypass, to prepare myself incase i one day need mine pulling out...lol.

the fried foods are definatly the big one...
spicey/more flavorfull foods can be SLOWLY added back in once hes had time to heal up BUT only to a comfortable point...he may never be able to handle anything quite as spicey as before...so when introducing spice back in take it easy. same goes for veggies and cerials/grains beans ect that are prone to causing gas, he may find he can have beans at a month out of surgeyr, but can only have a couple of oz or he gets "uncomfortable"...ect...

It helps to know how the body has changed with this surgery. The gall bladder stores the bile that helps food digest and if you eat a lot of fat it would let out a lot of bile to digest the fat, but if your body did not need the bile it would just sit there.

That regulation is gone now for your husband, so the list of foods to avoid probably take more bile to digest than his body puts into the stomach automatically now. What happens when you get too much fat in the stomach is that it takes longer than before the surgery to digest, so soon he will realize what works for him. In the meantime any time he is hungry, it is all right to have juice and bullion squares disolved in water. I understand these two things are easy to digest.

Are these suggestions for life? Or just temporarily? Because if it's for life, that would explain alot of things for me. Since Ihad my surgery several years ago, I get acid reflux easier, I also get bloated easier.
