i had my gall bladder out 5 weeks ago and have never felt better! my taste buds have changed completely and i can no longer bear the smell, taste and texture of red meat yet now love fish which i hated before. i have had no problems with my weight, in fact it has only been 3 months since i was diagnosed and i have lost 3 stone, half a stone of which has been since my op. i dont have any problems with diorreah either at the moment. in my opinion its important to watch food intake as the body cant digest food very well, and watch the amount of food too, avoid fats and red meat and hopefully like me having your gall bladder removed will be a positive experience. four women in my family have all had their gall bladder removed and to be honest its only the ones who came out of hospital and started to eat anything and everything that have had any problems.
