The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 29-year-old female asked:

Have the surgery : Would recommend having the gallbladder removed since it is needed and see if the other symptoms resolve but I don't believe it'll make it worse. Occasionally people have problems with diarrhea after gallbladder removal but it is rare and usually resolves over time and can be treated.
A 30-year-old female asked:

Normal healing: This may be part of the normal postoperative healing course. If this persists for several weeks after the procedure then I agree with the other recommendations and would also use fiber supplementation, a bulking agent.
