Will I have problems digesting oils and fats after gall bladder surgery?

In brief: Not usually

Early after surgery there may be some fatty food intolerance, with abdominal cramping or diarrhea.
Usually that resolves in a few weeks, if it happens at all. There is about a 1 in 400 chance of having persistent diarrhea after eating, which may not be specifically related to fatty foods.
