After my test on eating fried chicken, I made another test – drinking 1 glass of cola per day for 1 week. And since I already drank a glass in the fast food, I only needed 6 more days.
I was thinking like, how will my system react if I drink cola for 1 week? Knowing that I now live a life without gallbladder.
It so happened that when we went to SM Cebu grocery they have a bonus promo. And the first thing I saw was the pack of 3 Pepsi Max. So I checked the price on the pack and compared to the individual bottles. And it was less and also had a free ketchup. But before I put the pack in the push cart, I checked on the expiry date. And the best before date was way to far – May 14, 2010. So, I added the Pepsi Max trio in the cart.
And on that day alone, Jan.24, I drank 2 glasses of Pepsi Max. Then followed by 1 glass every after dinner until yesterday, Jan. 30, to complete my 7 days cola drinking test.
The result: I had no upset stomach, no stomach aches, no back pains, and no diarrhea the following day. So, I said to myself that my body is recovering from the gallbladder surgery. And that having no gallbladder is like living the same life as with those people that have one.
Although, I can’t say to myself that I am fully recovered because of my pending ERCP procedure and there are still foods to avoid.
But I am on a path to delist the foods under the foods to avoid. And I am taking it one at a time.
So, is cola a food to avoid for person without gallbladder? I say, NO.
Next test: it would be drinking beer or eating pasta or maybe chicken skin barbecue.
