kindly read detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:

thanks for posting query at HCM.
read your question thoroughly and understood your concern.

gall bladder primary role is to store "bile".
when gall bladder is intact, bile is usually secreted after having a meal rich in fat; bile plays a vital role in fat digestion.

after gall bladder is removed, bile is continuously being secreted in small intetsine and may reflux into stomach. as a result, gastric inflammation may occur causing pain and discomfort.
moreover, high fat meal induces more bile secretion further affecting gastric mucosa.

NO fat intake
OTC proton pump inhibitor (omeprazole, pantoprazole)to combat gatritis ( after discussing with treating physician)

hope to answer your concern
wish you good and sound health.
