    I had a bad gall bladder for 2 years,they said it tested goodAfter losing 70 lbs I fimally got it out.Now I cant digest food and have gone from about 230 to 160 or less. I wore a size 40 pants and now I'm in my sons 34,s.I am beginning to look like a pow.I have been in hospital every week or so for last year.But,it could be worse,all my friends have died and I have my cats,dogs and 100 quail and chuckars and a bunch of silkies,white,blue,buff.Here I am before bad gall bladder.The cats goten bigger, and I'm half my previous size,probally better for my heart.

    You should go back to the hospital for checks.. this is not normal to loose weight after having a gall bladder removed.

    Its not even necessary to change the diet.. unless you had a really bad diet before.

    You may need to check in with a nutritionist so they can formulate a diet that will work well for you. The gallbladder helps the body digest fats, so you may need a special diet to cater to that need.
