Hi. I had my gallbladder removed about 7 weeks ago. I was told I would feel so much better and be able to eat normally. Not working out that way.
2 months prior to surgery I was mostly on a plant based diet with a little bit of grains, like steamed veggie w salt and nothing else and maybe some cous-cous, no oil, butter or any type of fat or I would go into pain. After surgery I waited almost a month before introducing any fats. I seem to be able to tolerate a pat of butter on toast in the mornings and that is it for fat. I've tried a little meat, one egg, some chocolate on different occasions and the reactions are either the ole familiar pressure on chest and ribcage but now also could get nauseous or diarrhea. The worst is that pressure and the most frequent reaction. It's like I never had the operation, yet I have 4 small incisions on my abdomen and two photos from the hospital to prove, yes, I did have it.
If I knew what this reaction was I would know what to be looking up to help myself but I'm not sure what this is. I saw the surgeon last friday and she said my body got used to vegetarian diet and to give time, by next month I will be better. I'm not too optimistic because when I try some fat/protein it's a small amount that gets the negative reaction.
Anyone else having a hard time with eating Post-Op?
