Best diet after gallbladder removal

Common Questions and Answers about Best diet after gallbladder removal


Avatar n tn Did any of you have trouble with milk products, ice cream, fats, fried foods and/or spicy foods AFTER gallbladder removal and for how long after? Did any of you have years of touchy stomach after removal? I am talking about dietary restrictions, not abnormal or sharp pain. I am talking about loose stools, cramps, diahrrea and/or gas after eating certain foods AFTER removal of gallbladder.
Avatar n tn I read online that it is common after gallbladder removal and some people it gets better over time and others always have diarrhea. Does your husband feel better atleast after gallbladder removal?? I had mine removed but it did not take away the pain.
1943695 tn?1324041042 s started with clear fluids, soft solid diet and then normal diet. Avoid all fatty food as gall bladder removal can cause fatty food intolerance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Hey there. IBS is very common after gallbladder removal. I would talk to your doctor about this. There are newer medications that might really help you. I would go to a bland diet and add things in slowly to see what effect different items have. You can journal it. Then you will be left with a safe diet of foods. Fiber in particular can be tricky for flatulence. Be careful with all fiber foods and introduce slowly such as nuts, legumes, breads, cereals, vegetables with higher fiber, etc.
1926753 tn?1322970598 There are also rare occurrences where people still suffer from gallbladder like problems. If you are on a low fat diet, maybe you should make an appointment with your doctor to see if your body has a problem with excess bile.
Avatar f tn Sounds familiar. I can't go anywhere where there is no bathroom facilities close by. When I have to go, which is many times a day, it is emergent! I have found that my life is almost non-functioning since the removal of my gallbladder and all bowel evacuations burn but first severe cramping and pain. I almost think I would have rather kept the gallbladder and accepted whatever was going to happen that way. This is not much of a life.
Avatar f tn ive had my gallbladder removed 3 weeks ago , everything went fine , but a week after it , i noticed everything i ate , i had to run to toliet 20 -30 min later , couple days after that i was still the same but with fever a sickness , .
Avatar f tn They say that Diarrhea is only present in 10% of patients post gallbladder removal but the majority of people I have talk to have had diarrhea from day one post op and still have diarrhea 2 to 3years later post op. The best thing to do to prevent it is to eat small meals and to eat a low fat diet.
1427811 tn?1282967954 me too i have gained 45 pounds since my gallbladder was removed two years ago, i havent been checked for thyroid diease but i have been told that the reason for my weight gain is because our gallbladder is used to breakdown the bile but since we dont have it anymore there isnt anything to help breakdown the bile and some how it doesnt let us lose weight fast enough.
Avatar f tn what can i do after gallbladder removal to replace gallbladder surgery . I gained weight after this surgery.
Avatar f tn Hi! I am new to this forum. I am scheduled for gallbladder removal in 3 weeks & I am very unsure if this surgery is necessary. I am 34-I had my first mini attack when my fourth baby was 2 months old after eating cheesecake & a fattening quesadilla along with salad. I had no idea what was happening. 2 months later I drank iced coffee in the morning & had a horrible attack that almost sent me to the ER. It was then my sister who is a nurse told me it was my gallbladder.
Avatar n tn He has the same pains that he had when he had his gallbladder. I know that a lot of times the pain persists even after the removal of the gallbladder but we went to the ER and all they said was that he had a UTI. They gave him some antibiotics and some something for the nausea but nothing seems to help. What should we do?
Avatar m tn I've had my gallbladder removed. Should be un eventful. Call your doctor and get some medication. You can egg a prescription that will stop that right now. You could just be sick from the medication that put you out during surgery. Don't suffer. Call your doctor. It's not good for you to be throwing up right after a surgery. Gallbladder surgery requires you to rest post surgery and not stress the surgery site.
Avatar f tn After gallbladder removal you still have bile ducts. If by feeling the gallbladder you mean feeling the same kind of problems as before, they may be caused by small stones or biliary sludge sticking in the bile duct... After gallbladder removal, bile is constantly flowing into your intestine, and sometimes not all can be re-absorbed in the distal part of the small intestine, so it reaches the colon and irritates it. This can cause diarrhea.
Avatar n tn What Can I Do To Loss Exccess Pounds Of Fat? I'm Only 21 Years Old I'm 5'4" Weighing 249. I've Gained Over 50 Pounds After My Gallbladder Removal A Year And A Half Ago. WHAT CAN I DO???????????
Avatar n tn I have read hundreds of post concerning vomiting bile, post gallbladder removal pain, Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, MRIs, upper and lower GI exams and have yet to see what is causing these similar symptoms. In the past 10 years, has anyone figures this out? Our 22yr old son had his gallbladder removed only to continue this pattern of sickness. EWhat is the final diagnoses. Which facility or reasearch center or Doctor has had any success in treating this disease.
2000799 tn?1327430996 I have a similar side-effect after my gallbladder removal. (along with other issues not necessarily caused by removing the gallbladder). Ask your pharmacist about products like metamucil.....because certain types of fibre can actually help bind up the diarrhea.
Avatar n tn I am happier alive without pain, than any alternative. Life expectancy doesnt change after gallbladder removal. Not statistically anyways. People who have died usually had other problems or waited until their gallbladder was infected, had pancreatitus or some other BIG emergency before getting it removed. For God sake, do it when you are healthy. Good luck, don't let that above stuff freak you out, you'll be fine.
