In brief: 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.
