does everyone put on weight after gallbladder removal

Posted , 3 users are following.

HI EVERYONE, I have been told that you always put on weight after gallbladder removal , I am due to have mine out in May but I have problems losing weight now , I could do with some reassurence that putting on weight isn't always a problem and that if you stick to a low fat diet you can still manage to lose it , I have 3 stone to lose now so putting on even more would really depress me.

    I've put on 21 pounds in a year since removal  but I have enjoyed myself hasn't gone on for no reason... 

    I have over indulged 

    so the key is don't stuff after 

    so hard when you can eat foods you haven't been able to eat for years ...

    I have experienced the opposite. I actually have been losing weight since sticking with a low fat, low carb diet.  Good luck!

      Thanks for your reply , did you just know what not to eat or did your doctor advise you after your operation , I do know what things are low fat but it easier if you get some guidelines , You have given me the hope that i will still be able to get my weight off after my operation , I really was dreading not being able to lose weight no matter how i tried .THANKYOU FOR YOUR REPLY I NOW HAVE HOPE MAZx
