Curious how your body works without the gallbladder and if you can still eat all the foods you like?

I had to have my gallbladder removed, what happens to my body without this particular organ?

Fat digestion issues: The gallbladder stores and concentrates bile, which is produced by the liver and used by your body to absorb fat in the gut. When you eat fat, a hormone called cck signals the gallbladder to release bile. If the gallbladder is removed, the bile cannot be released all at once, so some fat is not absorbed. It is then passed out as diarrhea. A diet low in fat, and smaller meals will reduce that. ...Read more
