      I figured it was going to be a liquid diet. Great! Yes I know it will be worth it. I already use miralax, but the doctor gave me stool softners because of the meds.

    Hi you will want to eat a very bland diet for the first month because it is a shock for your body and digestive system to have something taken out, even if it is not essential. I will eat oats, bananas, and lots of liquids (best is  mineral water). It all depends how you will feel afterwards, your body will tell you. I had gallbladder surgery 5weeks ago, and it has been ups and downs. First I had diarrhoea ( common post surgery side effect) and I couldn't eat at all. then I got gastritis went even more bland with food for a week, then I started having lots of acid reflux, and I only eating milkshakes and probiotics to see if it settles. It has been hard but like I said each person is different, so listen to what your body is telling you and you can eat what you feel like without upsetting it too much. Hope surgery goes well.

    Doctor told me to stay on a low fat diet for 2 months after surgery. I'm going to have a late birthday this year. Jello doesn't count has a birthday cake or pizza. Plus I miss my chickn alfredo at the olive garden.

      Rips rips I love them. Pizza! Real icecream. This really is a lousy birthday gift. We only eat steak and ribs when we go out to Road House. Love the peanuts. This diet is old already. I wish I had more choices but I can't eat many vegatables and fruit doesn't like me. So mash potatoes and gravy or noodles with butter is getting real old. At least my husband bought halibut fish, which we ususally get eating at Mo's.

    Hi I had mine out 2 days ago. Currently eating anything is a real struggle. I've managed a few slices of bread and cerial bars but I've been feeling very sick and have no appetite. I keep trying small things . This morning I've had a few grapes.  

    Good luck. Let us know how you get on. I've been getting worried that my a petite hasn't returned yet and I love my food!!

      Try jello and broth for a few days. No dairy but skim milk. Eat low fat foods. I hope you are better real soon

    I could only eat jello for a few days. Then i had a raspberry poptart and skim milk. I have been eating normal food low fat for awhile now. The pain is getting better, but I am think I might be coming down with a bug even though I have stayed in since I had surgery. Stomach feeling icky and nose is running.  The pain is getting better but I think I did to much today and I'm hurting more then yesterday.
