how would gallbladder removal affect my triglycerides?

Likely no affect: Gallbladder surgery would have no affect on a person's cholesterol or triglyceride levels. If you were able to eat more fatty foods or gain weight after gallbladder surgery, however, that would affect cholesterol & triglyceride levels.
