In brief: Don't Need It

Generally speaking the loss of you gall bladder is unimportant in the scheme of things.
I would not hesitate to have mine removed if it was not normally functioning.

Agree with Dr. Charles berry. Post gall bladder removal it's important you watch your diet carefully, avoid or minimize fatty and heavy meals, Stick to small to moderate size portions. You may experience some symptoms of indigestion , more at the beginning.
