I had gall bladder removal due to gall stones about 4 months ago, i did not take care of myself and went back to my unhealthy ways of eating fatty foods! i know that is really and am sure i will have a horrible outcome. i want to know what are the risks of eating fast foods ice cream chips soda and all that because i am not experiencing similar pains and symptoms that i was having before my surgery. someone please help!
Even with a Gallbladder people should try to eat healthier. I don't believe you are going to have a horrible outcome just because you are eating wrong, but you might have loose stools as a result. You won't have the same symptoms because you don't have any stones in your common bile duct to block the flow of bile..also you don't have an imflammed gall bladder
Are you having "bowel dumps"? I had my GB removed in 2009 and if I ate any fast food or greasy food I would almost immediately be in the bathroom and the gas and cramps are awful! This lasted roughly 8 months for me! Give your insides time to heal. It has been 2 years for me and I still occasionally have this issue. I also noticed if I do not eat when I am hungry and wait too long I have this issue regardless of what I consume. To keep you digestive system operating smoothly eat light, healthy and small portions of food.
Well, other than the obvious dietary risks such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and weight gain, not having a gallbladder can cause you to have diarrhea after eating, especially if the food is high in fat.
