I just had mine out 9 days ago along with having an umbilical hernia repaired. So far I am doing okay. The worst thing I ate was a salad. It gave me some terrible gas pains for 2 days! Lol! Had one bout of diarrhea but that's it. My surgeon said it is hit or miss as to who can eat what and who has the constant runs afterward. I feel he was very honest. I'd say to just experiment and see what you can handle.

I agree...different foods for different non-gall-bladders. And how I love the idea of having to eat a McDonald's-jalapeno-cheddar-chicken-sandwich for "medicinal" purposes. It tastes much better than Dulcolax!

I had my gall bladder out when I was 16 (due to infection) I also had a stomach tumor at 25. The only on going side effect that I have notices are I get really ill if I eat greasy foods but its not all the time...doesn't really seem to be a rhyme or reason to when I will become sick. Example one day I can eat biscuits and sausage gravy and have no issues then a few weeks later I can eat the same thing and be sick. The most annoying side effect but I think it is due to the stomach tumor is constant heart burn. I take the generic form of protonix in order to semi control it, but I am often force to supplement with tums.

Wow!! I'm amazed reading all of these posts. I couldn't eat much prior to my surgery and didn't eat for about a month afterwards. I sure lost a lot of weight. Looked almost frightening, but the thought of food was not appealing to me. I hurt too badly from the surgery and just had no appetite.
Almost 6 months later, appetites back and I am eating what I like, but never really ate fatty foods. Wish I didn't feel the pain anymore though.
Good luck to everyone.

Ive had my gallbladder removed 4 days ago and my doctor advised me to stay away from milk and dairy products for 10 to 15 days .
I had broth the first day but started to eat normally the day after i did experience bloating and diarrhoea.
Hope things get better

Reading thru some of this thread I don't see any info on supports that one needs to take with no G.B. There is a lot of info on this and I wonder how many doctors direct their patients to these.

I have my G.B. and started on a support a couple yrs ago and everything is working better than ever.

I had mine out and I’d try it but go east on the spicy stuff. It took a few months before I could eat spicy foods again without upsetting my stomach.
