A 31-year-old female asked:
how long does it take the digestive system to fully adjust after a cholecystectomy? is it normal to have some gas and loose stools 6 weeks post op?

Yes : That wouldn't be uncommon, and different people have different adjustment times. It is also normal to occasionally have gas and occasional looses stools even of you haven't had an operation. If you're really worried something is wrong, check with your surgeon.
