Where Is Your Gallbladder Located In The Body
Curious how your body works without the gallbladder and if you can still eat all the foods you like?
Still Works: The body works without a gallbladder. The gallbladder stores bile which helps us digest fatty foods. Without the gallbladder reservoir, we cannot release as much bile after a meal, so sometimes fatty meals are harder to digest. This tends to improve with time and a low fat diet can help, especially right after surgery if fatty meals are a problem. ...Read more
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.

Pathology of my gallbladder showed granulomatosis is this likely to be in other parts of the body?
Granulomatosis of GB: Are you sure its granulomatosis or is it adenomyomatosis. If it's the latter don't worry, if there are multiple granulomas than this can have many causes and would be unlikely that it was isolated to the gallbladder.
