Trying to cut down on fatty foods now that I know I have gallstones.

After two trips to the ER this week due some really severe pain, I've been diagnosed with having gallstones. I will be making an appointment with my doctor on Monday and will be discussing if/when to have my gallbladder removed. In the meantime, I am supposed to cut down on fatty foods.
I am a vegetarian and think I already eat a relatively low fat diet, but my one downfall is olive oil. I like to make things like veg and tofu stir fry, or roasted vegetables with olive oil, etc. Is there something else I can use instead of olive oil? Any other ideas on cutting down on fat, or meal ideas would also be appreciated.
