Afraid Not: Although there are steps you can take to help lessen the likelihood of suffering from bouts of gallbladder pain (low fat diet, avoid greasy foods, etc.) once you experience an attack of gallbladder pain, the chances of having repeat attacks increases.

Are there any ways to reverse gallbladder problems in their early stages to avoid surgery?

Are there any ways to reverse gallbladder problems in their early stages to avoid surgery?

Unknown: I do not know if you mean gallstones or not. Many people can have gallstones their entire life with no problems & never need surgery. Once gallstones form they do not go away on their own or resolve with dietary changes or "gallbladder flush." once discomfort or pains occur from gallstones, then surgery becomes more likely needed.

What can I eat after gallbladder removal and which food should be avoided?

What can I eat after gallbladder removal and which food should be avoided?

Trial and error: After gallbladder removal, the bile from the liver constantly drains into the intestine (rather than being stored in the gallbladder between meals and squirted into the intestine after meals). Bile can be irritating and about 25% of patients may experience gastric irritation or diarrhea. This is called post-cholecystectomy syndrome. Avoid acid food and fatty food. Minimize alcohol and tobacco.

I can't eat food with a lot of seasonings, or really greasy food, or drink soda without feeling really sick. If I drink water and eat bland foods I feel fine though. People keep telling me its my gallbladder causing problems, is that right?

Belly pain: You can have "gallbladder pain" from typically eating lots of greasy foods. Mainly food with high fat content. The soda or seasoning maybe signs of gerd/gastritis/ulcer although there maybe overlap. You may need lab testing and diagnostic testing. Try avoiding food triggers if able.

What foods should I avoid to reduce a gall bladder attack?

What foods should I avoid to reduce a gall bladder attack?

Fatty, Fried Foods: The function of bile is to absorb fat from our diet. Fatty meals cause the release of a hormone (cck) that stimulates the gb to contract. Therefore, a low-fat diet is advised. Unfortunately, an attack can occur unrelated to food. The only definitive way to avoid a gb attack is gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy). Good luck!
