Had my gallbladder removed in 2008 and that was just the beginning of my problems. If highly recommend you do all the following -
Change your diet - cut out meat/wheat/diary as much as you can for the first few weeks after your surgery at least. I maintained eating a vegetarian
diet and am way happier for it. I also try to keep my wheat and diary intake as low as possible. I drink almond milk and only have goats yogurt
occasionally. cut out junk food completely! nothing deep fried, overly cheesy, burgers etc. this is all bad news! nothing high in sugar, no soda, etc.
Herbal Remedies - Turmeric and Milk Thistle are both great for systems with no gall bladders. I take a tincture daily, find a local herbalist in your
area that makes these. Also, do your own research into herbs that are "bile produces" since you now lack that, you need to make up for it. We can
longer digest foods properly but more importantly extract the full nutrients, vitamins and minerals out of foods with no bile to help so herbs like
Milk Thistle, Dandelion, etc can help with this.
Stay away from acid forming foods - get a chart on Acid/Alkaline foods and eat within the guidelines. If you are a coffee drink you will want to
eliminate it for awhile, this goes for red meats as well as foods with lots of sugar.
I would also recommend seeing a naturopath. I had nothing but troubles until I ditched the doctors and went to see a naturopath. they changed my life
for the better! dont get caught up taking prescription drugs for your issues, your gut flora is in question now, you want to build it back up. look
into fermented foods like sauerkraut or miso soup to help. goat yogurt is a great way to get more probiotics into your system.
