Not the best: choice, especially after childbirth. Starvation is a very poor option. Avoid fried, fatty, greasy foods. Eat healthy fruits & vegetables and small amounts of lean meats. That should help the discomfort. See a doctor or a General Surgeon regarding gallbladder surgery.

Symptomatic gall stones - ones causing pain & heart burn need to come out . Otherwise you are at risk of Gall stone Pancreatitis .' Which is both painful and dangerous and will require long hospitalization .
