Post gallbladder removal diet?

The surgeon who removed my gallbladder recommended a light diet on my discharge papers but I never had the opportunity to speak with him about this.  I have been living on fruit, fat free crackers, chicken soup and fat free yogurt to name a few things.  A well meaning relative brought over cookies and I had one and what a mistake that turned out to be!  Are there any dietary guidelines to follow?  I cant find anything.  thanks.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

There could be fatty food intolerance post surgery. So, in general avoid all food high in fat and cholesterol. Also avoid all food high in calories and include plenty of high fiber diet. Avoid all fried food, fatty red meat, whole milk dairy products and highly processed food. Include plenty of fresh fruits, high fiber vegetables, whole grains, lean meat and low fat dairy products.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
