    Hi 

    everyone is different so you'll have to try and see .. Maybe flat Pepsi at first. Some people have to stick to low fat for months as there digestive system becomes very sensitive .. Some get bad diahreah attacks if they eat certain foods and drinks... 

    I before my operation had got my attacks under control by being a veggie eating no fat no caffeine so no Pepsi and drinking mint and camomile tea... After my operation I found I could eat and drink anything and I was prone to constipation rather than diahreah...

    so it depends on you ...

    but I would advice learning to drink water now as Pepsi will cause your gallbladder to contract and squeeze which will cause pain and colic vomiting attacks xxx

    Susan,

    Keep you eating habits very simple. I would not recommend a Pepsi. Stick to Sprite. Lots of Yogurt, rice, greens, breads.

      Yes i had my removed. Im about 9 weeks post op. Its pretty rough recovery so take it easy. Also add soups to your diet. That is the big key factor. Maintain a good healthy diet forever.

    People are very different so it is a question of trial and error really.

    I would start off by introducing foods gradually.

    If you have been on a low fat diet prior to op try to remain on that as much as possible.

    I have always been OK with spicy foods but a lot of people say they are not.

    Hope this helps

    Sarah
