Bile is vital for the proper digestion of fats. The gall bladder stores bile and releases it in response to the fats you eat. Since you now lack a gall bladder, you won't get that extra dose of bile at mealtime. As a result, you may have intolerance to fatty foods, inefficient digestion of fats and change in the color or consistency of stool.
