Diet should be followed after Gallbladder Surgery

A bland, low fat diet is recommended after a gall bladder surgery.

A low fat diet is recommended for several weeks before a gallbladder surgery. Some diet restrictions are also recommended following gallbladder surgery:

  • After the surgery a bland, low fat diet is considered to be the most ideal and may include toast, rice, bananas, soup and pasta.
  • Once the patient is fully recovered, a healthy and balanced diet that includes fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains is recommended.
Gallbladder Surgery Healthy Foods
  • Foods rich in fat such as whole milk, cream, cakes and deep-fried foods should be avoided. Instead skimmed milk, low fat yogurt, baked meat or fish and non-alcoholic beverages should be included in the diet.

  • Healthy fats such as olive oil and fish oil should be used.

Besides, addition of bile supplement to the meals may help in digestion.
