I had my gallbladder removed unexpectedly on Sunday (7/16/2023) due to it being completely filled with gallstones. I’m wondering what and how I should make dietary changes to prevent digestive issues/upset now that I’ve had my gallbladder removed. I also have gastroparesis so adding fiber and such is very difficult for me as that tends to slow my GI tract down even more. I’ve read to avoid high fat foods but am not sure what else I should avoid or add to my diet.

      I know it's been 2 months, but I hope that this can still help you. I got mine removed in 2008 when I was 19. It took me a few years to learn what I could and couldn't eat. However to be fair I was in pain for 2 months before we figure out it was gal stones. I can't do red sauce or pork. I can still eat fried foods, but just have to be careful. The best thing I have come across is Probiotics! I found a juice drink that I drink a glass every day to every other day, and damn I wish I found it sooner! The juice drink works better for me than the pills you can get. Anyway I hope you see this and I hope it helps you.

Some individuals have found a low fodmap diet and only eating slow cooked meat to be helpful after gallbladder removal. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice, especially considering your gastroparesis condition.
