Low residue diet and gallbladder

Posted , 4 users are following.

I don't know if the two are related but I have been a long time on low residue (if I eat any fiber garenteed pain) and now I am dealing with gallbladder attacks. Just what I need another surgery. I have already had my appendix burst 3 years ago and divertitulitus attacks for the last 20 months. I am so sad. 😭

Has anyone else had their gallbladder act up since diverticulitis?

    Not yet...thank God. I do know that I have gall stones but they have not bothered me yet. I feel so bad for anyone that has to deal with diverticulitis.

    I also have gallstones and diverticula disease, gallstones were diagnosed first few years back and diverticula disease this year, had my worst gallbladder attack in June and now waiting surgery.  Seems the two problems often go together.

      I have had 3 gallbladder attack in September and the pain is worse then my appendix bursting. The low fiber foods are the worst for gallbladder but I can't do fruits and veg besides carrots and 1 spinach pellot or my diver acts up. I hope you get your surgery soon.

    Thanks I'm quite nervous about surgery but hopefully it will improve things.  I also find my dd is better if I stick to low residue diet but can do some fruit and veg, just keep trying different foods and hoping for the best.

    I had my gallbladder and appendix removed in 2002 along with surgery for adhesions.

    I still have problems with fiber and try to eat a low residue diet.

    Cramping, diarrhea and constipation at different times. Still a vicious cycle.  Good luck. Everyone is different so hopefully it will help you. 🙏🤞
