A male asked:

Gallbladder removed 6 years ago, recently had light clay colored stool few times back to normal the next day, is this is a result of no gallbladder?

No: This is not a result of no gallbladder, but could represent a problem with the pancreas. More likely, it is the result of something you ate. Having said that, you may want to see your primary care provider for Aptekar clnete evaluation. May need to run some blood tests as well. Hope this helps!
