Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure.

I had gallbladder surgery 4 days ago. Doing very well. Tired of bland diet, what can I eat? I'm afraid to eat anything not bland!

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. A small percentage of patients will get post op urgency, which is an urgent need to have a bm about 30-45 minutes after meals. This will be self limited, or easily quelled with Imodium (loperamide) ad. Good luck. ...Read more

Had gallbladder surgery what would be the best diet to be on?

Depends: Immediately after surgery I find patients who eat greasy or fatty food have a lot of abdominal pain and cramping with diarrhea and urgent trips to the bathroom. It takes a while for the body to get used to not having a large input of bile with each meal to help digest the fat. While almost everyone goes back to eating a normal diet. I recommend my patients avoid high fat foods for the first 4 wk. ...Read more

How to cure gallbladder sludge? What diet foods should I take?

How to cure gallbladder sludge? What diet foods should I take?

Removal: Sludge in the gallbladder occurs when there is an alteration in liver metabolism, and one of three main components of bile crystallize, and sit in the gallbladder. This sludge will eventually coalesce in to stones. There is no cure for the inderlying cause. Surgical removal of the gallbladder does solve the problem. If there are no symptoms, its ok to watch it. ...Read more

There re many factors associated with the formation of gallstones and sometimes dieting alternated with periods of food binges can be as bad and a promotor of gallstones. ...Read more

Is it possible to have abnormal hida scan, but watch diet and live a normal healthy life without having gallbladder removed?

Is it possible to have abnormal hida scan, but watch diet and live a normal healthy life without having gallbladder removed?

Yes: A radionuclide scan (hida, pipida) is a study of the function and emptying of the gallbladder. We typically think of abnormal results as less than 35 or 40%; however, I have seen many patients with bilary pain with "normal" results as well as patients with abnormal results but essentially no symptoms. The best place for hida is in concert with other tests (blood, u/s, physical exam. ...Read more

Does a low functioning gallbladder get better with diet? Hida scan showed only 17% functioning what's the chances of rupturing or gettinh gangreen?

Does a low functioning gallbladder get better with diet? Hida scan showed only 17% functioning what's the chances of rupturing or gettinh gangreen?

unlikely: The good thing with seeing the gallbladder (you can't calculate an ejection fraction unless the gallbladder filled first) is that it is very good with predicting that there is not acute cholecystitis...So gangrene and rupture very unlikely at that time. However an ejection fraction of 17%, is low. This is most commonly related to a chronic disease, and indicates poor function. ...Read more
