Our expert says:
There should be no change in weight after a gallbladder op (unless you lose some in the post-operative period when you only ingest fluids for a day or so), because all that changes is that bile or gall is no longer stored in the gallbladder, but is secreted directly into the digestive tract. Possible factors that may play a role are: the change in not feeling nauseous all the time may make you eat more, esp of fatty foods or this could be a reaction to medications you used before or after the op?? Counter the weight gain with an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
