Gallbladder Recovery - food choices

Hi,

I had my gallbladder removed 2 weeks ago. The first week was really painful , second week not so much . I just started back up at work and I am totally drained and just exhausted at the end of the day. And no I dont lift anything heavy. Do alot of walking around at my work. I feel pressure and its uncomfortable. I am not eating alot. but I am so sick of chicken. I busted down and had a turkey burger and I had chips just yesterday, none of these has made me run to the bathroom. I just dont know what I should be eating, I mean are turkey burgers even good to eat. And I know chicken is, but is there anything else , good things I could eat instead of chicken. Is sandwiches good, I have been having plain turkey. no cheese. Before my surgery I couldnt eat any dairy, so I am still nervous to start drinking coffee again since it made me so sick before and also tea, can I have decaf tea, or should I be staying away from that stuff. Thanks for any responses! I could use some advice

Re: Gallbladder Recovery - food choices

You should be eating low to no fat for 2-3 weeks and then SLOWLY start adding fat to your diet. So anything along these lines are fine: chicken, turkey, seafood (not salmon or mackerel or any with high fat content), sandwiches (no cheese or mayo), baked potato, yogurt, vegetables, fruit, etc. Fat free dairy is OK. Cereal, soup with no cream or red meat. Roughage (salad stuff and raw veggies) for some reason tend to cause problems for a lot of folks - probably due to gas. Bread is fine. Coffee and tea shouldbe fine - they don't contain any fat.
