I would say it is normal. I had my GB taken on December 20, 2007. I had trouble eating until recently, but I still cant eat like I used to. I have a lot of gas and stomach cramping, especially after eating. I also have mild nausea after eating as well. My surgeon said I would get full fast until my body adjusts without a gallbladder, which takes 6-8 weeks! You'll be fine, just eat small meals and watch what you eat!
