    I had my gallbladder out over 3 years ago and after that I started with IBS, doesn't matter what u eat I have really bad days when I need to be near s toilet at all times, has anyone else suffered with this? I've been under the consultant in all this time and apart from staying on tablets which I've not had much luck with them there isn't much they can do.

    I was told I could eat anything. I had my GB removed on 14th July. I have been careful this week with portion size and not eaten anything with much fat, and have had no problems. The doctor seemed surprised when I asked about diet post GB removal.

    Hi Linda!

    I'm on gluten/ lactose free diet due to IBS-D ( prior to GB removal) now I'm Day 5 since surgery and all I'm eating is oatmeal with strawberries and chicken soap 😩but the doctor told me I could eat anything I want ( but I did not work for me , solids made me sick so I will stick to this diet for one more week)

    Linda,

    I've had my gallbladder out since October of 2014.  Just avoid anything with high fat, and follow your doctor's advice for your restricted diet.  I always think of fat as my enemy.  I myself stay away from soda pop, and anything that is highly acidic, because of my acid reflux.  However, I eat a very balanced diet of vegetables, fruit, meat, nuts, grains, and some dairy.  Rule of thumb; if it bothers your system, don't eat it.  Other than that, drink plenty of water.  I hope this helps!

    I'm five months post op. I tend to eat smaller meals these days and I stick mainly to low fat foods as I find too much fat in one go overloads my digestive system: I can eat one poached egg, but feel uncomfortable after two. I ordered pizza today, as it was daughter's birthday, but only ate half (no repercussions!). So long as there's not too much fat, I'm ok. I avoid very spicy foods, alcohol and fizzy drinks, but as you have IBS you are probably already eating this way.

    I was told I'd be able to eat 'normally', whatever 'normal' is. You just have to be sensible and play it by ear when introducing foods- if they have repercussions, don't eat them again! I used to love pineapple but find it doesn't agree with me any more so I don't eat it. It's really not rocket science.
