My situation is like the first comment. I had my removal done when I was 22 years old and I am now 35. I did experience Diareah and loos Bowell. In time it will get better. Believe it or not extra Fiber will help with that just as it will with the hard Stools. The doctors say that you dont need the Gallbladder which we all know is obviously Bull c**p. Weight gane has only been an issue since I lost my Gallbladder. High proteins and lower fat with extra fiber is the ticket for me, but dont be fooled be the high fiber food, its not enough. Buy ground Flax seed and/or Bran and add it to your food as a regular practice. if you just sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon of it in your foods it shouldnt change the taist and/or consistency.
