my nutritionist said that after Gallbladder removal the body is no longer able to digest fats….she recommended a supplement for me: Cholacol by Standard Process…..that I can take with every meal that has fat in it….and it helps the body digest fats. Also she said that since the liver will now trickle constantly into the intestines (they then become acid, and a lot of the natural flora is destroyed)….so I also take a megadophilus capsule each morning on empty stomach………..hope this is helpful info.
