Realize that some gallbladder problems are originally exacerbated by diets rich in foods that throw off the balance of the bile itself. While your body adjusts to functioning without a gallbladder, it's even more important that you avoid these foods.
Avoid foods that have a high fat or acid content. Until your body has had time to heal and adjust, stay away from red meat, pork, butter, fried foods, dairy products and eggs. In regards to drinks, stay away from fruit juices (aside from grape and apple) and all caffeinated, alcoholic or carbonated beverage. Even decaf coffee and tea should be avoided.
Include foods in your diet that promote the good health of your biliary system and your digestive system in general. Fiber sources such as lettuce and grains are wonderful, as are vitamin-rich fruits
and vegetables such as beets, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, grapes and carrots. Increase your levels of fiber slowly. Foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids such as flax-seed oil and salmon are also beneficial in small amounts.
Hope that you're one of the 60 percent of people who have no additional problems once they've finished healing from gallbladder removal. The other 40 percent may experience some bloating, gas or discomfort for weeks, months or even longer after healing whenever they eat foods similar to those mentioned above. Give yourself at least two to four weeks beyond the time that all physical signs of the surgery have healed before attempting to reintroduce those foods into your diet, and do so in exceedingly small amounts at first.
Eating smaller meals through out the day at even intervals can help your body to regulate bile production.
