I had laparoscopic gall bladder surgery about 7 years ago and was told by the surgeon to stay on a liquid diet for the first day, then anything I wanted after that. I eat EVERYTHING with no problem.

About 10 years ago I had a laproscopic gall bladder removal and second what people have said about light, easy to swallow, easy to digest for right after the surgery. What I have found long term is that fatty foods tend to make me ill. Things that most people don't find too greasy are too greasy for me. Everyone is different, but you might want to watch the fat content on whatever you make for your friend.

Agree with all of the above advice. The first day or two it is probably wise to eat a bit on the light side, although for most it is not necessary.

After that, most folks have no dietary problems.

Kinda makes you wonder why God gave us a gallbladder to begin with.

Before criticizing a person, walk a mile in his shoes - then you are a mile away and you have his shoes!
