Possibly: If you mean bloated with gas that is a possibility. Sometimes gallbladder dysfunction can lead to difficulty digesting fats which may leave you gassy and bloated. In fact, increased flatulence and belching are secondary symptoms of gallbladder disease. If it persists please check with your doctor.
