Stool color varies: The color comes from bile which is yellow/green and then is converted by bacteria to shades of brown, unless transit time is very fast. If stools are white or light tan, it may indicate a blockage of bile or a liver condition and needs evaluation. Bile helps to digest fats, so without a gall bladder, fats may not digest well, which can have a laxative effect and not allow color conversion. ...Read more

Gallbladder problems generally cause significant abdominal pain and you do not mention that. ...Read more
