If you had your gallbladder removed (PIOG) Edit with new question

How do you handle fatty or greasy foods, like pizza? I had an emergency laparoscopic cholecystectomy two weeks ago and I am still figuring out what will give me diarrhea and what won't. Any insight will be greatly appreciated :)

Edit: thank you all for your insight! I now have a question, it may be hard to answer, but if you can or are willing to answer, thank you :). We're you heavier before your cholecystectomy or after? I know a few people who are overweight, even after their removal, one of which eats fast food at least 3 times a week. I would think that would make her race for the toilet more often, right?

It all depends on you really. And it's weird because pizza won't hurt me one day then the next it's like hell lol. BUT butter always gives me a hard time. It's hard to say unless you just eat it and find out!

Well I found out the hard way with pizza lol

I can have toast or an English muffin with very little butter and I do fine.

Well, I have stomach issues to begin with. I don't handle greasy foods well, especially fast food. Hope you feel better soon! :)

I had mine out in jan and haven't had any problems. I had more problems when I was pregnant and needed it out.

just stay close to a bathroom at all times for AT LEAST a year and a half following the surgery. So many painful sudden poops...

I would also recommend if you try a type of food and gives you a hard time try a different brand of it. Sometimes different brands are a little better and wont hurt you. I have had mine out since November so I have learned all about this kinda stuff lol

If you eat out, stay there for at least 15 minutes after eating just in case. If you get stuck in the car it's an awful feeling that follows. Ugh... Took about two years for me to stop having that reaction.

At first I didn't have an issues with foods. Now, it's hit or miss. I had mine taken out going in 2 years now.

It takes a while. It took my body a couple years to get back to normal when it came to greasy food, or anything high in fiber.

Nothing has bothered me since surgery (2 years ago).
