What is the diet after a cholecystectomy?

I am asking for dietary advice for an Asian friend of mine who has had a cholecystectomy at the beginning of the year but did not get enough medical advice and has been hospitalised last week with severe pain between her ribs after eating fatty and very spicy foods.

Hello,
This pain may not be attributed to post cholecystectomy status, pain in the ribs?? In the middle or left or right side?? If it is right side of the chest , then let her get an Ecg done if normal then generally pain after spicy food could be gastric related issue , like acid reflux , gastritis or esophagitis or Duodenitis, she should be consulting a Gastroenterologist and get an USG Abdomen with an upper GI endoscopy to rule out the same and can be treated . Hope I could help you.
Thank you.
