... removed. I'm waiting to meet w/a surgeon. In the meantime, what can I eat??? I had a bowl of bran flakes and 1% milk last about 6p.m. and I felt like I had completely stuffed myself with a heavy meal. At 11p.m. I felt no better and was constantly burping. Can anyone give me some ideas of what foods they've eaten and not felt awful?
Gallbladder Disease - After having a HIDA scan I was informed that my gallbladder needs to be?

Still haven't found a surgeon that takes my insurance. After the surgery, will there be diet modifications? I've also read that diarhea may be a problem.

Thanks for the info. I finally had my gallbladder out on 7/5. I feel much better! Still experimenting with different foods - dairy is totally out of the picture for now. Grilled chicken, salmon and lean pork chops seem to go fine. Salad, veggies and pasta are ok too. Has anyone else had the problem with dairy - low fat yogurt, cottage cheese, etc?
Heya Beagle! Any luck getting that thing removed yet?! I had my Gall Bladder fail early last year and had it removed around August last year. Your diet will change tremendously. I am still searching for things to eat that will be easier on my insides. Chicken isn't too bad, I eat veggies a lot now also, and ground beefs are alright. Anything greasy slays me for a day or two, spicy food too. Carbonated drinks aren't much fun either. I just recently found out that lean meats I've been eating (steaks and such) were the cause of some pretty bad stomach pain for up to 2 days after the meal, so I don't touch those anymore either. You can find some helpful guides around the net, but it's somewhat different on an individual basis it seems. Make sure you take multi vitamins to help supplement too. It's really very much a trial and error sorta thing from what I have experienced.
... and yea Diarrhea and general intestinal discomfort may occur more often than you want.
did you get yours removed... i had min eout 6/21/11 and im fine, eat whatever i want and have no problems, so far!
hope all is well!
