Cholecystectomy : The only definitive treatment of gallbladder disease is to remove the "gallstone factory". Like all operations, there are risks and it is up to you and your surgeon to decide if the benefits of this operation outweigh the risks. If you are like most patients, your quality of life will improve after this surgery. If the diarrhea is due to your gallbladder disease, this should improve as well.
