A:

You can get back to a regular, healthy diet.

Eat a well balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Use healthier fats, such as olive oil, when you cook and for salads. Keep saturated fats to a minimum.

Before your gallbladder was removed, you were probably told to stay on a very low fat diet. This can help decrease symptoms in someone with gallstones or gallbladder inflammation. But changes to diet alone cannot dissolve gallstones.

Your liver makes bile. This is needed to help digest fat. The gallbladder just stores the bile. Now that your gallbladder is gone, your bile is secreted right into your intestine. You should be able to have moderate amounts of dietary fat without any problems.
