I have just had my gall bladder removed. Can you suggest a diet? When can I start exercising (I had Key hole surgery) and is it ok to have a few glasses of wine ?

People having their gall bladder removed often complain for bloating, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. These are common symptoms of gall bladder surgery. It's true that the body runs its normal functions after removal of gall bladder because the primary function of this small organ was to pass transfer bile and aid in digestion. This function after the removal is handles by a special bile duct in the human body. Don't be so cautious of your diet after the surgery. You can carry on with your normal diet and avoid starchy foods that hamper the movement of bile in the body. You may have complains of poor digestion but that can be solved by consuming more of high fiber foods. Your body will find difficulty in handling fats, so avoid high fat foods such as cheese, meat, butter, dairy products and fish.

Stamp the below mentioned points on your mind frame after your gall bladder surgery:
  • Most of the people do not face any kind of digestive problems.
  • Post-cholecystectomy diarrhea is common consequence of gall bladder surgery.
  • No incidence of malabsorption is found because body has enough bile liquid to absorb fats and essential vitamins.
  • Don't drink wine or any kind of alcoholic beverages because these may further result in health defects and can even cause liver damage.
  • You can carry on with your regular exercise after a week or so.
  • Take time to relax and give time to your body to adapt to the changes.
