What do I need to change in my diet after gall bladder removal?
Hello, a month back I got my gallbladder removal. After I get my gall bladder removed, is there anything I need to change about what I eat? I am 46 years old male. Patients undergoing gall bladder removal (cholecystectomy) usually recover without any need to vary their diet. Some transient side effects of the surgery such as diarrhea, bloating, and flatulence may occur Please suggest if there is anything that I need to change in my diet which will help in quick recovery.
@ter Hello, If you experience side effects from surgery, including indigestion, bloating, flatulence, and diarrhea. It may help to make some small adjustments to your diet. Avoid drinks containing caffeine, such as coffee and tea, and avoid foods that make the problems worse, such as spicy or fatty foods, gradually increase your intake of fiber – good sources of fiber include fresh fruit and vegetables, wholegrain rice, wholewheat pasta and bread, seeds, nuts, and oats.
