    I one year post removal. The best things to do are- keep your fat intake low(avocados olive oil ok in moderation), no full fat dairy- hard cheese are fine, decaf coffee only, and i usually have egg whites- the yellow of the egg sometimes is too much. i also try to not to have gluten. rice, oatmeal, potatoes all good, there are plenty of good gluten free breads on the market. i also drink Oat or Almond milk in my decaf. The most important thing is a bile binder- I drink one teaspoon of Acacia fiber (Amazon or Whole Foods) mixed with 6-8oz of water when I wake up and then wait 20-30 minutes then I eat. this binds the bile that my body produced in excess over night which will cause diarreah, you can also add another teaspoon of fiber before bed too.

    good luck. I've been in your shoes, and i have also taken prescription bile binders like Welchol that didnt work for me as well as Acacia fiber.

    I have porridge for my breakfast along with blueberries. It fills you up and is calm on the stomach. I often get rumblings and wind but it's getting better. Plain yoghurt 0% fat is good too, also frozen yoghurt as a dessert.

      I eat that from time to time. ( Oatmeal and blueberries and sometimes bananas) I will add the yogurt in my diet. Since having my bladder out, I have lost weight. That part I like. Does good for my self esteem.

      I eat bananas regularly too. I had a veg meal with egg fried rice today at a Chinese. Very tasty and tummy is fine. No sauces. Hope you continue to improve.
