Gall bladder removed 3 months ago. Stools were a little loose but still only once a day. Past four days developed loose stools/diarreah upon waking, after eating, and even if I don't eat. Tried BRAT diet and not much difference. Related to surgery?

In brief: Can be.

You may have a constant slow dribbling of bile into your intestines now that the gallbladder is gone.
This can result in loose stools. Here are some mess like questran that can bind bile salts and may help. See you MD
