Pain: Reduce the amount of fat to decrease the chances of pain and bloating when you have no gallblader or take bile products as rx by your doctor; reduce the amount of a meal.

OBSTRUCTION POSSIBLY: It's possible you have some degree of small bowel obstruction, especially if the pain you're experiencing is cramping and intermittent.You may have developed a gluten or lactose intolerance. I'm not concerned about your absent gallbladder. Try smaller meals and keep a diary of your foods against the occurrence and severity of your symptoms, to discuss with your doctor. Good luck.
