Tracy...I'm kind of late on this, but I have found just because something doesnt bother you one time, doesnt mean it wont the next. I've had mine out for about 3 weeks now and salad I have found is not a friend of mine. I can eat tacos one day, but the next time my body kicks them back. Fried foods dont bother me at all, where my husband(he had his out 5yrs ago) they do. Steak and Shake, well lets just not go there at all. Ice cream, honey nut cheerios, oatmeal, grits are another no-no. Some people can handle certain foods better then others. I tried the "gallbladder diet", that lasted a week before I decided to just "go with the flow." Like I said, you'll find foods may bother you one time and not another. I'm a little leary of fast foods when i'm away from home, but one day i'll venture that way.

Hi TracyLouwhoo, Welcome to SP. I think you can eat anything you want to without a gallbladder, but healthy is better all the way around. The gallbladder is one of those organs that used to be useful back in the stone age when there was only feast or famine, no grocery stores and regular meals. Join lots of teams and make lots of friends, This is a fun site and like anything else, you get out of it what you put into it.

I just got my gallbladder removed about a week ago. I have been tinkering around the internet looking for information, recommendations, etc. on how to deal without a gallbladder. I know low-fat diet is the best, but I wanted to get some feedback from ya'll.
So please let me know if you have any advice on diet (I know low-fat is key, but do I still try to eat the minimum amount of fat that my nutrition page recommends?), vitamin supplements I may need to look into, things to look out for in the future, etc.
I appreciate ya'll taking the time.
