ladies for the last two weeks is been having gallbladder attacks but it wasn't till I was rushed via ambulance to the ER that we found out that it was actually my gallbladder.
so my question is, next week I have my surgery to have it removed, so what will my diet be like afterwards? what can I or can't I eat? right now I'm on a bland and clear liquid diet till my surgery :-( but I'm just wondering what I can have till my surgery and what I can't have afterwards :-) please and thanks

I just had my gallbladder removed a couple months ago. Right after all I could eat was crackers, pudding and water. But that was only for a day then I went back to eating normally. I have noticed though that my stomach hurts when I eat something that I haven't eaten since getting it removed. But its only the first time I eat it.. Does that make sense? Lol
Gallbladder problems suck! You will be amazed at how good you feel afterwards! Good luck! :)

at first it is just going to be broth, jello, water, pudding, etc. very mild things. spicy and greasy things are gonna be killer for awhile. cereal is my life saver.

I had mine out.

After a week I was eating normal stuff that I use to eat.

I have heard lettuce is a no no because it's hard to process.

A month later I ended up have ulcers. I think that was my problem in the first place honestly.

I eat everything I ate beforehand. Just go slow and see how different foods affect you.

I have gallstones but Im pregnant so there's nothing we can do. OMG it hurts when she kicks (she's 7+ lbs already).
But Im holistic and will only have surgery as a last resort. So after the baby is born Im doing a 5 day liquid cleanse and then Im trying the apple cure (drink 5 glasses of apple juice and eat 5 apples every day for 5 days). If that doesn't work there's a medicine called Break Stone that's made from a plant in South America and its supposed to be very effective.
But I don't know your situation or if you have gallstones or another problem. As I understand it, your diet needs to be very much like my acid reflux diet after Gallbladder removal - bland, low-fat foods.

Food allergies are a huge culprit.  Peanuts make ,y gallbladder feel like its being stabbed.  Please see an allergy specialist

The only things I have issues with after having my mine removed is spicy and greasy stuff. Right after the surgery, it seemed like everything made my stomach hurt so I stuck to mild bland foods: crackers, cereal, jello... You will feel better after its removed but the pain is going to be bad for a while. Good luck!!

My diet has been the same, and no problem.  My gallbladder went from no problem,to emergency surgery!   Talk to your Dr,, and go slowly, especially with greasy foods.  The only difference I have noticed is that when I need to go #2, I can't wait too long anymore!  Good luck.

I have several times when I was younger. I'm not allergic to peanuts and all my attacks haven been after greasy or spicy food
