    I have gallstones. Before I was diagnosed a GP thought it was either IBS or Gallstones. Not sure now whether I have IBS as well as a gallstone but symptoms are obviously similar.

    No idea about dieat for IBS I'm afraid but for Gallstones it is low or no fat.

    Take care and keep us posted
