Hi there. This is what I found about diet. Most of the articles do suggest diet changes. Be well and hope this helps :)
Post Cholecystectomy Syndrome and Diet
Post cholecystectomy syndrome is a "preliminary diagnosis" with multiple possible causes. In some cases, the symptoms may be either caused by or treated by diet. Following the post cholecystectomy diet recommended by doctors is important to help prevent post cholecystectomy syndrome symptoms.
Good post cholecystectomy foods include beets, cucumbers, okra, sweet potatoes, avocadoes, acidic foods, and foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Foods to be avoided after gallbladder surgery include trans fats, saturated fats, dairy, eggs, coffee and black tea, most fruit juices, alcohol, chocolate, cabbage, and radishes. (Graefer 2007)
According to one study (Porr et al. 2004), some cases of post cholecystectomy syndrome are caused by magnesium deficiency. In the study, these patients' symptoms were relieved by magnesium supplementation. Foods high in magnesium may be beneficial when incorporated into the post cholecystectomy syndrome diet. Many high-magnesium foods, unfortunately, are on the list of foods to be avoided post cholecystectomy, but some good choices include avocado, brown rice, and especially halibut and spinach (National Institutes of Health).
If post cholecystectomy syndrome symptoms are experienced, the patient should always start by telling his or her doctors and following their directions. However, a proper post cholecystectomy syndrome diet can help reduce or prevent symptoms for some patients. And as long as the person continues to eat a variety of foods, following a proper post cholecystectomy diet certainly cannot do any harm. http://www.brighthub.com/health/heartburn-gerd/articles/33425.aspx
Hi I had trouble with fat for about 6-7 months after surgery I had to eat very very low fat. Any fat would send me straight to the bathroom . I had to run .
I would make spicy lowfat chili with 99% fat free turkey and it never bothered me. If I ate a piece of chocolate I always got nauseous.
Now I can eat more fat but I gain wait a lot faster than before so you should probably stick to the low fat diet . I do get more heartburn after my surgery. I had gerd even before. I just make sure I take my PPI and tums especially when eating spicy foods. Last night I ate some cherry peppers and had to take an extra tums because of the heartburn.
i had my surgery 6 weeks ago... i find sticking to the lower fat diet has worked well, also non fat dairy and skim milk... i take digestive enzymes if i eat anything not healthy but im trying to stay away from that stuff. I feel great, only complaint I have is exhausted... cant seem to get my energy back up.
