I consider myself an academic disaster but I can read, write, and spell better than you.

Everyone is different. I had my gallbladder removed 2 years ago. The first 6 months was a mine field of food. I never knew what I could or could not eat. Reading what others write about tolerances MEANS NOTHING. Everyone is different. For example, I've NEVER had a single issue eating pepperoni pizza after my gallbladder was removed. Not one issue. However, the first 9 months afterward I could not tolerate ANY milk, butter, sour cream, or yogurt. But all cheese were never a problem. Chocolate has ALWAYS been a bad call since the gallbladder was removed. It ALWAYS causes discomfort. However, knowing this small doses of chocolate can be fine. I've learned to live with the gas and discomfort when it's mild and as long as I don't eat too much chocolate, I'm fine. A bite here or there is okay. A full size candy bar.. .well.. there better be a bathroom nearby in 20-30 minutes.

Other things people tell you to avoid may make no sense as well. I don't really have an issue with deep fried foods or "greasy" foods. My issues are more around some spices, or even greens. Lettuce is iffy for me. Iceberg lettuce is typically bad, but romaine or green leaf can be okay in small amounts. Fruit juices will cause me discomfort, as will some fruits. I love apples, grapes, and pears. Again, knowing HOW MUCH I can eat is the key. Half an apple or pear and only a handful of grapes. Otherwise there's discomfort.

In short, eat what you traditionally would eat. But eat SLOWER -- Like take three bites and wait 10 minutes. You'll feel the discomfort setting in if you've made a bad call. So don't eat any more. That's how I treat most things unless I know I'm either okay with something or something is on my blacklist.

Two years later I've found I can drink ONE brand of milk... don't know why. I tied everything from whole, 2%, lactose free, skim, almond, hazelnut, cashew, flaxseed, 1% -- all were bad. But I finally found 1 brand of 2% milk I'm fine with. Don't know why this one brand is okay with my gut, but it is. And I've learned to use butter sparingly and use the reduced fat butters. That generally means it's okay. Ghee butter is better on the gut if it can be found.

There are other things I KNOW I can't eat.. Pop Tarts, Fritos chips (actually most chips). So generally I eat those once and that's it.. never again.

Just experiment. Worst case is you're going to feel bloated and gassy for a while. That's why you should eat slow.. to minimize that if it is going to occur.
