    Gallbladder removal's or cholecystectomy is a commonly performed and successful surgery. It is usually performed laprascopically through small incisions in the abdomen. probably the most bothersome thing after surgery is adjusting to a low fat diet. The reason for this is because, without a gallbladder, bile that would normally excreted to absorb fat is not occuring as it is consumed but at a slow trickle, from the liver. This leads to bloating gas and diarrhea. Hope this helps!
