No restrictions: After the gallbladder is removed there is no need to avoid fatty foods. Prior to surgery, a patient with gallbladder problems should avoid fatty foods to avoid symptoms.

Good luck. ...Read more

Can you offer any tips on a gallbladder diet?

Low fat: If you're having gallbladder symptoms, you can reduce them by avoiding fatty foods. Try sherbet and pretzels for snacks, avoid avocados, nuts, peanut butter. Use low fat dairy, low fat salad dressings. Nothing fried. Now, if you have surgery to remove the gallbladder, all those restrictions go away. Good luck. ...Read more
