Gall Bladder What Not To Eat
It's been over 2 years since removal of my gall bladder, no matter what I eat or drink still causes uncontrollable diarrhea. What can I do?
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
My mom has barrets esophagus. She has diabetes, BP , thyroid..She's had kidney stones n recently hd her gall bladder removed. What food cn she eat ?
That's a tough one!: I would focus mostly on her diabetes and eating appropriately for that condition - low glycemic diet with eye on weight loss if she is overweight. If her kidney stones are calcium oxalate (most common) then she should restrict oxalate (NOT CALCIUM) rich foods such as rhubarb, beets, okra, nuts, tea, chocolate, soy and spinach. See a registered dietician for livable eating plan! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Don't eat after 12: H.I.D.A. scans or those like them are gallbladder function tests. An ultrasound is usually used first line as screening for biliary dysfunction. If equivocal or normal and symptoms strongly suggest biliary dysfunction - then a nuclear functioning test is done to assess the gallbladder ejection fraction (EF). If abnormal the gallbladder is usually the source of the symptoms - and surgery is needed ...Read more
Should be able: To eat fairly normally, eventually. Early after surgery eat small, light, non fat foods. As you heal & feel better over a few weeks or less you should be able to return to eating all normal foods. Fatty or greasy foods cause some people to feel bloating, gas or diarrhea after surgery. ...Read more
A distended: gallbladder is caused by a stone blocking the outlet. So, eating fatty foods at this time may cause more discomfort than you necessarily would want. I would suggest seeking a PCP opinion and possibly getting referred to a surgeon for removal. Good Luck ...Read more
