Re: does having your gallbladder removed cause weight gain?

In my experience (gall removed 4 years ago) having it removed does not cause weight gain..in fact after I had it removed I noticed that I can no longer tolerate fatty or fried foods as it causes bad heartburn.

Re: does having your gallbladder removed cause weight gain?

Hey coffeelover
I had my gall bladder removed several years ago and when I had my pre -op appt, my doctor told me that there is the possibility to gain weight but if I watched what I ate I would be ok. It is harder for your body to get rid of fat and almost kills your metabolism. I did good for awhile but I have gained some weight over the last year. However I have to blame that on being out of work and the monster fibroid I have growing in my belly. Hope this helps.

Eating leaner foods is good for a lot of reasons. Removal of the gall bladder is just another one. The bile stored there is what helps digest fats. The body still makes the bile, but there is no longer a storage facility to regulate the use of it.

Hi Coffeelover!

I had my gallbladder removed last August, and have lost almost 30 lbs. After you have yours removed, your body will not like anything with a high fat content. I can eat any fruit or vegetable, but have to be careful with some meats. Also fried foods are not good. My doctor told me that after the surgery I would eat much healthier-she was so right! Go ahead and have that thing that is making your life miserable taken away! You'll be so much happier and thinner!

All the best!
