I have just had a lap cholysystectomy. Give me a proper diet

I have just had a lap cholysystectomy. I am a slim 35 year old woman and did not seem a likely candidate for gallstones. I am 3 weeks post op (complicaiton of adhesions and stone lodged in Hartmann s Pouch ). I have continued pain in the right upper quadrant and (presumably unrelated, and pre-existing) intermittent pain in the left upper quadrant. I have been on an extremely low fat diet since diagnosis 7 months ago (severe pain with fats and nausea with fruits etc) but would like to know how much fat I can reintroduce? The normal foods I have tried so far have led to pre-op levels of pain. Thanks

Even after cholecystectomy you will have to maintain extremely low levels of fat and spice sin your foods as gall bladder plays an important role in digestion of fatty foods in our diet. Cholecystectomy is done to relieve you from the pain due to stones and not to restore your previous diet.
