Maybe everything...: If you're not having any symptoms, ( the vast majority of patients with gallstones do not, ) you do not need a special diet. Now, if you begin to have symptoms (bloating, dyspepsia, nausea, right upper quadrant or right upper back pain, ) then a lower fat diet may reduce your symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

Hard to know.: Both your family history and bcp use could have contributed to gallstone formation--it's hard to know which was more important.

My wife has gallstones . What foods should she avoid so not to irritate them and what medication is best to help the pain? Thank you .

Many docs prescribe narcotics, but I have found Donnatal works well. Medications are not a long term solution however. Consider a consultation with a general surgeon to find out more. Hope this helps! ...Read more

In that setting you should see a doctor and see if the gallbladder needs removing. There is no diet that will make the stones go away. ...Read more
