Follow the doctor's advice! I had terrible horrific gallbladder attacks for several years until I went really low fat. Simplified, your gallbladder produces bile that breaks down fat. Gallstones clog the bile duct so when you eat fat, your gallbladder tries to send bile out to digest it and will send gallstones with it that get stuck. That's where the pain comes from. It's called biliary colic and it's horrible and will most likely continue unless you do low fat. There are certain fats that bypass the body's bile system (coconut oil is one) so do some research and start replacing stuff in your diet.

Anectodally, I have been 'bilary colic' free for 5 years since I turned my diet completely around...I used to eat very high fat.
