After gallbladder surgery, will I ever be able to eat anything I love?

Ultrasound and bloodwork after several excruciating bouts of pain this week show that I apparently have gallbladder disease. Help.

This is completely unexpected -- I'm 33, I weigh all of 125 pounds, I don't eat any fast food or junk food, my diet includes plenty of fruits and veggies and whole grains. Previously my cholesterol levels were normal. This has all come on very suddenly.
Oh yeah, and I'm a devoted foodie and freelance food writer. I'm all about the good food. I was a picky eater as a kid who discovered food after I left for college; I now preach with the zeal of the converted. This diagnosis is about the third-worst thing I could hear.
I know that a bunch of MeFites have had this surgery. I'm freaking out about the surgery itself and worse, the prospect of not being able to eat adventurously for the rest of my life.
Anyone have any reassurances for me?
