Twinkle toes....Removing the Gallbladder which stores Bile produced by the Liver may be allowing too much Bile into your system to handle so a couple of points to try and see how you feel. One is to reduce the amount of fat you consume so less Bile is produced by the Liver and second is try taking Lipase enzymes with your meals to help predissove the Fatty acids so you'll take pressure off your liver. Best Wishes.....

I agree with 6foot. I know several people who had their gallbladders removed and had to take some kind of powdered additive each day to avoid problems like you are having. Let me ask this, is there any chance that there were a couple stones left in the common bile duct that could be causing problems? I've seen that happen once and it caused the same kind of problems too.
You should let the surgeon who performed the procedure know exactly what is going on, maybe he/she can help.
I hope you get some answers and some much needed relief- soon!
When you were in the hospital did they check your amylase/lipase levels? I'm sure they probably did, but just something to check out. Sometimes having your gall bladder out can cause pancreatic problems... actually they thought my gall bladder was causing my pancreas problems.. but they took it out and the same symptoms remained... so in the end it wasn't the gall bladder causing all my sypmtoms.. just all from the pancreas. And Pancreatitis is not something to mess with, it causes some intense pain, and lots of nausea/vomiting.. just something to think about....
Had mine out in 2005. dr. thought i had cancer because of all the shadows in gallbladder. took it out, surgery was nothing. gallbladder was perfectly healthy, no sludge, not stones, not cancer thank God. took almost a year before i was myself again. alot of digestive problems and trial and error of what i could and could not eat. I know people who have had no problems I wasn't one of them. keep in toudh with the dr. most of this will pass in time when your body regulates to a missing organ.
