Gallbladder diarrhea: After removal of gallbladder it is common to develop diarrhea. The reason is bile is no longer released in control quantities as there is no reservoir( gallbladder). It is released in large quantities and overwhelms intestinal absorption. Some people lack receptors in colon which causes diarrhea. The treatment is bile resins(cholestyramine and colestipol) that bind bile. With time diarrea improves.
