In brief: Gallstones

Upper abdominal bloating ; pressure discomfort after eating can be symptoms of gallstone irritation.
Constipation would not be expected as a result of the gallstones. But constipation can comee from pain medicatuon such as codeine. Drinking plenty of liquids and eating plenty of fiber with fruits and vegetabls can help too. You can try prune juice toog.

Yes, avoid fatty greasy foods with gallstones.

In brief: Totally safe

Yes, prune juice is totally safe for you.
The main western medicine treatment is removing your gallbladder, though you could also try ursodiol, a pricey naturally-derived drug that slowly dissolves some stones. There are good natural alternatives like golden coin grass and chanca piedra. See http://bit.Ly/16m9ire ; http://bit.Ly/1f32xev ; http://bit.Ly/1eb7vxd ; http://bit.Ly/1l9vrku.
