Gall-bladder

Hi Doc!
How does the liver/body adapt when the gall-bladder is removed and what must you eat to prevent chaos in this case?
Thanks
Lare

Dear Lare
The gallbladder is just a storage device - when you eat fatty foods, gall is squirted into the deodenum to help with the digestion of fat. If the gallbladder is removed, you should avoid fatty foods, otherwise you can have oily or bulky stools, as you can't properly digest high fat containing foods. Other than this you should have no problems.
