Personally, I do better with frozen veggies instead of fresh. I usually eat green beans, peas, and spinach. I eat a lot of potatoes, too. For fruit, I usually stick to bananas and unsweetened applesauce.For me, the amount of food affects me more than what food it is. For example, I can eat a couple of small squares of pizza, but if I was to eat as much as my co-workers (8-10 squares) I wouldn't be able to run to the bathroom fast enough!Everyone with IBS is different. My mom has IBS-D and her "safe" foods when eating out are hamburgers and hot dogs, while mine is mashed potatoes. Quite a difference.Without a gallbladder, low fat is the key. When I had mine out, I don't think I would have survived without the cookbook "Live Don't DIEt." It had normal foods made low-fat, like casseroles and things. There is now also a cookbook advertised on the BB for people with IBS written by a woman with IBS.And I often wonder if IBSers have a harder time recovering from gallbladder surgery. For me, I'd say it took a good five years before my IBS was back to being managable like it was before the surgery.
