I wonder what will be the long term effects of having no gallbladder? Is it ok if I eat fatty, oily foods 1 month after? I'm too young and scared

I wonder what will be the long term effects of having no gallbladder? Is it ok if I eat fatty, oily foods 1 month after? I'm too young and scared

Usually no problem: Bile is used by your gut to absorb fat; left unabsorbed, fat will cause diarrhea. The gallbladder's job is to store bile & deliver it to the gut after fatty meals; however, the liver produces the bile & bile will still get to the gut w/o a gallbladder. Therefore, most people have no problem digesting fats after surgery; for those that do, it often improves in time. ...Read more
