Our expert says:
There are many different opinions and subjective feelings of people who had their gallbladders removed. Unfortunately, I am unaware of any scientific findings to prove for example, the slowing of your metabolism. If you are overweight, you should adhere to a strict diet and a good exercise regime, anyway. The down side is that if you do not remove the gallbladder, the inflammation could have serious complications, like infection and hepatitis.
