Temporarily: Any surgery can affect appetite temporarily (typically few wks). It all comes back eventually. With cholecystectomy, certain foods cause more problems and eventually u may start to not like those foods if the symptoms are bad enough.

This resolves as you heal and after you become more active & off narcotic pain pills. Drink plenty of liquids & eat smaller non-fatty meals more frequently at first.
Lower in fat diet: The gallbladder is a bile storage sack which pumps/squeezes bile into the intestine to help digest (emulsify) fats. After removal, you have less bile available to digest fat, but after a few months your body/liver will adjust. So, after surgery, consume less fat, but all else should be fine. In general, we eat too much--so a healthy, balanced diet, and maybe smaller portions, is advised. Good luck.
