In brief: The Gallbladder is

a STORAGE organ..
.youare still making the same amount of digestive enzymes you were making before your surgery expect until the blie ducts enlarge enough to STORE these enzymes they may not be released TIMED proper;y to your meals! TRY EATING SMALLER AMOUNTS MORE FREQUENTLY and be patient ..things should improve over the next few months...if not speak with your PCP or GI specialist
