See your doctor: Avoid fatty, fried ; greasy foods. See your doctor to consider a trial of medication cholestyramine.

Your symptoms: Appear unrelated to your gallbladder surgery. It might be caused by bile irritation of intestine. Consult your GI specialist for specific advice.

Sounds like you might be dehydrated from the diarrhea making you feel drained and dizzy. Drinking plenty of fluids and replacing electrolytes (such as Gatorade) in the meantime might make you feel better.
