Things you must know if you don’t have a gallbladder

Removal of the gallbladder is one of the most common surgeries performed in the USA and Australia today.  Gallstones are incredibly common and they occur in 10 to 15 percent of the population.  The problem does tend to run in families. Women are more likely to experience gallbladder problems than men and this is partly due to the effects of the female hormone estrogen.

A gallbladder performs several important roles in your body:

  • Enables fat digestion
  • Enables absorption of fat soluble antioxidants and vitamins A, E, D and K
  • Assists the removal of cholesterol from your body
  • Assists the removal of toxins that have been broken down by the liver

Obviously you can survive without a gallbladder, but you are more prone to developing certain health problems.  In particular you are at greater risk of developing a fatty liver, experiencing indigestion and developing deficiencies of essential fatty acids and fat soluble nutrients

What happens when you don’t have a gallbladder?

Your liver continues to manufacture bile, but there is no longer a place to store it or concentrate it.  Therefore bile continually slowly trickles into the intestines.  If you eat a fatty meal, you will not be able to secrete a large enough amount of bile into your intestines, therefore the fat will be poorly digested.  This means many people experience diarrhea, bloating, nausea or indigestion.

Not digesting fat well means you will not be able to digest essential fatty acids, including omega 3 and omega 6 fats.  It also means you’ll have a hard time absorbing fat soluble vitamins such as vitamins D, E, A and K.  A lot of the antioxidants in vegetables are fat soluble: lycopene, lutein and carotenoids are all fat soluble.  If you don’t produce adequate bile, you will not be adequately absorbing these life saving compounds from foods.  If you take any of the above mentioned nutrients in supplement form, without sufficient bile you will sadly not absorb them well.

Some common symptoms of poor fat digestion are dry, brittle hair; dry skin and premature aging of the skin; weak nails and painful joints. Essential fatty acids are important for optimal brain health, therefore low mood, anxiety, depression and impaired cognitive function are all possible manifestations of poor fat digestion.

How to have a healthy liver and good digestion without a gallbladder

First of all it’s important to realise that you developed a gallbladder problem in the first place because you had an unhealthy liver and a problem with your digestive system.  If your liver is not healthy, it will make poor quality bile.  The bile will be prone to forming sludge and stones.  Just removing the gallbladder doesn’t solve that problem, and in fact sludge and stones can form within the liver, compromising its function.

Here are some vital tips to follow:

  • Keep your intake of dairy products and grains to a minimum or avoid them altogether.  Dairy products (milk, cheese, ice-cream, yoghurt) worsen all cases of gallbladder disease, liver disease and they are very difficult to digest.  Food intolerance is a common cause of gallbladder problems, and there is research that links gluten intolerance with gallstones.  A good reason to keep your intake of grains low is to reduce the risk of developing a fatty liver.  There is a great deal of helpful information in our book Save your Gallbladder, and what to do if you’ve already lost it.
  • Take a good quality liver tonic such as Livatone.  The herbs St Mary’s thistle, dandelion root and globe artichoke leaves all increase bile production and bile flow.  Taurine is an amino acid necessary for bile production.  This should help to make you feel more comfortable after a meal, and should reduce the risk of stones forming inside your liver.
  • Take an ox bile supplement.  This is the most important recommendation for people who have lost their gallbladder.  A lack of bile can produce symptoms such as bloating and indigestion after meals, light colored stools, diarrhea, fatigue after meals and nutrient deficiencies.  Taking a good quality ox bile supplement with each meal is wonderful for completely eliminating these symptoms in most individuals.
  • Take a Digestive Enzymes supplement. The majority of people who developed a gallbladder problem have suffered with poor digestion for many years. If your stomach and intestines are not in optimal health, they will not send signals to your gallbladder, telling it to contract properly. Irritable bowel syndrome, dysbiosis, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and Candida overgrowth are common in people with a gallbladder problem. If you have had your gallbladder removed, you may continue to suffer symptoms due to those conditions. These digestive problems also cause insufficient digestive enzyme production. Taking digestive enzymes in supplement form helps to restore good digestive health and reduces symptoms of indigestion.
  • Eat some good fats and avoid the bad fats.  Your doctor may have recommended you follow a low fat diet after having your gallbladder removed.  This is not necessary and in fact it is harmful.  Your body desperately needs good fats and I recommend you include moderate quantities of extra virgin olive oil, avocados, coconut milk and oil, nuts and seeds in your diet.
  • You may need a vitamin D3 supplement.  People with compromised liver or digestive function are often vitamin D deficient.  Exposure of your skin to the sun’s UVB rays enables your body to manufacture vitamin D.  However, this process occurs in your liver and kidneys.  People with a sluggish liver often do not manufacture vitamin D adequately.  Therefore it’s a good idea to get a blood test and take a supplement.  5000 IU of vitamin D3 is a safe and effective dose for most people, but it’s best to be guided by your own doctor.
  • Include some bitter and sour foods in your diet.  They should help to improve your digestion and make it easier to tolerate good fats in your diet.  Suitable bitter and sour foods include lemons, limes, radicchio lettuce, chicory, endive and dandelion leaves.  These leaves are fairly easy to grow at home if you are lucky enough to have your own veggie patch.

  3. I am one of the few people that, after having my gall bladder removed, has developed gall stones in my bile duct. It has happened every 2-3 years since having it removed in 2003. I end up in the emergency room every time. It had been an absolute nightmare. I thought having my gall bladder out would take the pain away but it hasn’t. I follow a gluten free/ dairy free diet and it still seems to happen. Im wondering if there is anything I can do to avoid the emergency room. Anything I can do at home to rid the pain?

  5. Had gallbladder surgery almost 3 years ago. Had lots of bad symptoms really bad reflux with painful esophageal spasms, burning throat & heartburn lots and lots. Now past two weeks feeling this symptoms again. The pain in my esophagus is horrendous due to acids. I gave up dairy and processed foods . Is this due to my diet? Why am I having so much heartburn if not eating much. Back then did so many tests and we’re all normal for reflux.

    • Sorry to contradict the doctors but… I had my infected and perforated gall bladder removed last summer. It had caused me to have a severe sepsis. Since then I have eaten normally, not avoiding any foodstuffs whatever. I eat fried foods, cured meats, cereal with milk, yoghurt, cream fruit desserts etc etc. with no adverse effects. The only time I had some discomfort was after a meal with rather too much high grade virgin olive oil. My consultant advised me to eat normally and said that my digestion would adjust itself to the new regime which has proved to be the case. For many years prior to the removal my digestive system was always very loose. Since the removal it has settled down to very near normality with no bloating, indigestion or discomfort. From my experience I would encourage people to avoid faddy diets and supplements and allow their systems to adapt over time. The human body is a marvellous machine and is best when allowed to heal itself.

      • I had my gallbldder removed 1 year ago, I have violent diarrhea anytime I eat anything fatty or go to long without eating. Avoiding dairy, unhealthy fats and eating foods high in fiber help eliminate the diarrhea and pain. I guess every person is different and will need to adjust to their own personal needs.

  7. I just found out that my gallbladder is functioning at 0%
    And that I’ll have to have surgery
    Is there anyway to save my gallbladder

    • Hi Sally,

      This is non-functional. Are you in a lot of pain?
      We recommend you eliminate gluten, sugar, dairy, processed foods and takeout meals.
      There is some great info in Dr Cabot’s book ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do If You’ve Already Lost It’.
      Whether you do or don’t decide to go ahead with the surgery, Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Super Digestive Enzymes 1 to 2 caps with a glass of water at each meal to allow proper absorption and breakdown of carbohydrate, protein, fat and nutrients. The Ox Bile can work to replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder (if you have it removed) for essential fat absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. NAC is the precursor to glutathione; the body’s most potent antioxidant. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.

    • If it is not functioning properly you don’t need it, better yet you don’t want it.
      Having your gall bladder removed is a relatively easy and painless procedure. The best part is that you will feel better than you do right now.
      Many patients leave the hospital in 24 hrs or less.
      Trust me, you will be glad you did… I am.

      • your gallbladder is there for a reason. A simple detox programme that lasts for a week ending in your gallbladder expelling the stones is very much more preferable than having it taken out.

  8. Hi, was wondering about chronic itching of skin just after meals, some fatigue, weight gain, & bloating. Had my gallbladder out two years ago and the symptoms have just been around maybe a couple months. Read about OxBile and am now taking Now Super Enzymes, which seem to help the itching somewhat. I know I have to change my diet and am in the process of doing that, but would the liver supplement also help?

    • Hi Stephanie,

      After gallbladder removal, if certain dietary changes are not made it is very common to experience the digestive symptoms you mentioned.
      We recommend you eliminate grains, sugar, dairy, processed food and takeout meals.
      There is further dietary information in Dr Cabot’s book ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do If You’ve Already Lost It’.

  9. Hi there, I had my gall bladder removed 11 years ago, followed a low fat low fibre diet after and then a year on from there, went on a ketosis diet and lost a lot of weight to get healthy. I have pretty much managed my weight within a range since then through periods of putting myself back into ketosis, and I always feel healthiest when I am in ketosis. I’ve learned how to cook to keep myself in ketosis mostly, and this means a high fat, medium protein and low carb diet. Does the high fat element of this way of living and eating mean that I am stressing my liver though? I recognise the symptoms of fatigue after a meal, bloating and intermittent IBS although those symptoms are not there when I am eating to be in ketosis. I don’t take any supplements at all.
    Thanks very much!

  10. After having my gallbladder removed I was diagnosed with IBS which has made my life a living hell. I have diarrhea every single day of my life. I have lost weight, my skin has aged terribly. I cannot leave my home any more to shop or do the things other people do because of the diarrhea. Is there anything I can do to releive these symptoms?

    • Carol, My life was also a living hell, I spent pretty much 3 months in bed with constant diarrhea, after every test imageable I found out I had c-dif. I had lost 35 lbs and to week to do anything. I have spent 1 1/2 years trying to get healthy again. Still struggle with diarrhea some days and can’t get to far from toilet.
      Thinking now my system is not functioning correctly after gallbladder which happened in the middle of all the above.

  11. I had my gal bladder removed a year ago and of late I have experienced numbness, pain in my pelvis the side of where the operation was conducted. I also experience stiff fingers and nambmes especially when am sleeping.

  12. I’ve read three of your articles: Things you must know if you don’t have a gallbladder and 5 Ways To Reverse A Fatty Liver and Suffering with digestive problems? It could be a sluggish Gallbladder. But I’m wondering what is the difference between Livatone Live Tonic and Livatone Plus?

    I had my gallbladder removed last May (surgery report said my gallbladder was inflamed, had multiple stoned, mostly notabley a 2.3cm stone) but I still have chronic nagging pain in my upper right quad from front to back. A recent ultrasound showed that my liver was normal, but given my pain I think I need to do more.

    I added Ox Bile about 6 months ago and it helped with digestion, but its the pain that gets me.

    I’ve been on a sugar and gluten free diet for about 2/12 years as a way to control my chronic migraines, but before that my diet was poor to fair.

    Thanks for you help.

  14. Hi I had my gallbladder removed 7 months ago after a 7% on the HIDA scan. I had an endoscopy in Feb due to tight throat and severe burning in my stomach. My diagnoses was bile reflux gastritis. I have been on a digestive enzyme and Carafate since. These items help tremendously but how do I stop the bile reflux or is that possible?

    • Hi Stephanie,

      We recommend you eliminate grains, sugar, dairy, processed foods and takeout meals.
      Try to base your diet on good protein sources (chicken,eggs,lean meat,seafood), good fats (avocado,seafood,nuts,), fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds. There is an excellent eating plan in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.

    • Hi Cynthia,

      Brown rice is technically a grain, perhaps only eat it in small amounts and not regularly.

  16. Could you please clarify when Ox Bile should be taken ideally? Is it at the beginning of a meal or in the middle of a meal? I think the book says take it at the beginning of a meal, but on this site sometimes it states to take it at the beginning of a meal, and other times it states to take it in the middle of a meal.

    Also, if a meal does not contain a lot of fats, should the Ox Bile amount be reduced accordingly? Thank you.

    • Hi Haley,

      The Ox Bile can be taken either just before a meal OR in the middle of a meal.
      This is correct, if you are having a meal that isn’t high in fat you can adjust the dosage accordingly.

  17. Thank you so much for writing this article. I had my gallbladder out 16 years ago, and my doctor never told me anything about after-care or foods to avoid or look for. I’ve been having digestive and weight problems since, and I never linked the two together.

    Most of the foods I should avoid are all foods that I love and eat a lot of – which would explain a lot of my symptoms. Thanks to you, I now have a new action plan to try and figure out what’s going on with my body. So thank you thank you thank you!

    • I’m the same way had my gallbladder out 17 years ago, and my doctor didn’t say a word about any after care or how I should eat later on down the line. I’ve had problems ever since my surgery hopefully now I can fix what should have been done years ago…

  18. I have a friend who had her Gallbladder taken out 2010.
    She continues to have cholesterol gallstones… but there is NO gallbladder there and the surgeons here are saying that’s Impossible because she no longer has a gallbladder.
    Well, they removed 3 less than 2 months ago.

    What do you say about that ?

    • Hi Penny,

      Gallbladder problems are caused by an unhealthy liver and a problem with your digestive system. If your liver is not healthy, it will make poor quality bile which can cause sludge and stones. Removing the gallbladder will not fix this problem, sludge and stones can still form within the liver, compromising its function.
      We recommend she eliminate grain, sugar, dairy, processed food, takeout meals and high fructose corn syrup.
      There is an excellent eating plan in Dr Cabot’s books: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do If You’ve Already Lost It’ and ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      We recommend she take
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals to replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. NAC is the precursor to glutathione; the body’s most potent antioxidant. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.

    • Completely freaking out. I had mine removed 18 years ago and no doctor ever told me to watch my diet. It wasa personal trainer who told me.
      I’m constantly sick after meals, always bloated and suffer with serious muscle pains.
      I’m just hoping its not too late to reverse any liver damage.
      Thankyou for such awesome information.

  20. I’m so glad to have come across this article! I had my gallbladder removed almost 5 years ago and around the same time was diagnosed with gastroparesis. I’ve been to several doctors and three naturopaths, and no one ever mentioned on bile until last week! I decided to research it and came across this article. I never believed that following the standard diet protocol for gastroparesis/gallbladder removal (low fat, low fiber…crap!) was wise, so I eat very close to paleo. However, I am fatigued after meals, have horribly slow digestion, and moderate depression, despite the fact that I take megadoses of Vit D3. Now I know my fat soluble vitamins haven’t been digesting. Good to know! My question is in regards to major chronic pain in my mid back on the right side. I’ve been seeing a chiropracter and a physical therapist for two years, but they provide little relief. Lately it’s so bad my quality if life is declining. Could this be fatty liver, even though I eat well and exercise? I desperately need answers and doctors never seem to believe anything is wrong and I’m so tired of struggling to be a good mom to my three little girls while in so much pain all the time! Any advice? Thank you!

    • Hi Crystal,

      We suggest you read this article for further information on your back pain: https://www.liverdoctor.com/gallbladder-and-digestive-problems/
      It is likely that this back pain is associated with lack of bile due to gallbladder removal as well as fatty liver which often goes hand in hand with gallbladder removal.
      We recommend you eliminate grains, dairy, sugar, processed food and takeout meals from your diet.
      There is an excellent diet plan to follow in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of all meals, to replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function and boost metabolism.
      Magnesium Ultra Potent Powder 1/2 tsp twice daily to reduce back pain and help with low energy states such as weakness, fatigue, depression or apathy.

    • Hello, how were you diagnosed with gastroparesis? I m going to my gi next week and they think that’s what I have.

      • They did a gastric emptying test to confirm the diagnosis. Basically, you eat radioactive eggs and toast, and then they x-Ray your stomach several times over the next two hours.

  21. Hi i removed my gallbladder in 2010 i was 130lbs at the age of 16 now i am 191lbs at the age of 23 im feeling bolted belly fat i dont have a poor diet but its not all healthy can you give me some tips please

    • Hi Anna,

      It sounds like you may have fatty liver. This can be diagnosed by getting a liver function test and/or ultrasound scan of the liver.
      There is an excellent eating plan in Dr Cabot’s free e-book on fatty liver.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take

  24. Hi, My mother has a gallbladder stone and swollen. she had taken doctor precautions around 6 months continue but gallbladder pain and swollen is not yet resolved. So now the doctor’s advised to us for operation.

    1. what would be the effect on the body if gallbladder removes from the body?
    2. what challenges we could be face after removing the gallbladder from the body?
    3. what precaution we need to take after removing the gallbladder from the body?
    4. how much it will effect to the human?

    • Hi Ankit,

      The gallbladder can often be saved if there are not multiple gallstones, but if she is experiencing a lot of pain perhaps removal is necessary.
      We also recommend she get a HIDA scan to check functioning of gallbladder.
      There is excellent information in Dr Cabot’s book:’Save Your Gallbladder Naturally’.
      The book also has some great raw juice recipes to help dissolve gallstones.
      After gallbladder removal there is no bile coming from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      Whether you decide to get surgery or not, Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals to replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to increase bile flow (if you don’t get surgery) and improve liver function.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. NAC is the precursor to glutathione; the body’s most potent antioxidant. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.

  25. Hello… I was diagnosed with gull bladder stones in October 2016 (i weighted 218 6 feet tall) after symptoms poped up ( the classic pain under rib cage that would work its way to my side and to the back) I tried dissolving stones myself by eating a strict low fat diet and eating almost vegan … I lost 33 pounds in 4 in a half months… well the stones didn’t dissolve and eventually had gull bladder removed on March 13, 2017 (cholecystectomy)…( my weight now is 180-183 depends on time of day) my diet has been great following all the rules i hope… my question is will i start gaining weight again? my appearance is skinny almost unhealthy looking, but i feel great) when will i be gaining some weight though?

    • Hi Leo,

      After gallbladder we recommend you eliminate grains, dairy, processed food and takeout meals.
      We recommend you base your diet on good protein (poultry,seafood,lean meat,eggs), good fats (avocado,seafood,nuts,cold pressed olive oil, cold pressed coconut oil), fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals. This is to replace the bile that can no longer come from your gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.

  26. Hi, I had a great diet, Paleo mainly with odd treat such as very dark chocolate and occasional nam bread or burger bun on our monthly date nights with my husband, but mostly gluten free and very low sugar, organic grass fed meats, lots of healthy fats in coconut products and nuts, bone broth, sauerkraut, kefir, plate mostly veg. Non dairy yogurts, nuts and seeds and berries. I dont eat take out or many packaged products. I however started with IBS symptoms triggered with food last year, since then I developed chronic reflux which i managed with foods and avoided the meds. Since Xmas I have been diagnosed with multiple mobile gallstones, all other scans have been clear and bloods perfect ( heridatory in our family, lots of females removed, some in emergency before 40!) I have now lst 14.5kg, suffer reflux and ibs symptoms swinging between cannot go and keep going, these are intermittent. Also gas, bloating, achy pains under right rib, sharp pains under rib and stomach. I am living on chicken and rice, small amount of coconut yogurt is also tolerated with berries and a few seeds, bone broth, kefir and organic pork sausages occasionally ( for some reason doesnt cause an issue) Anything else causes IBS, rib bruised pain or reflux or even all 3! I have now been placed on top priority and at gastro in 2 weeks after struggling since June. I have been under 2 naturopaths and been taking every herb supplement known to help, but symptoms get worse, I take ox bile and enzymes but bloating and pain is increasing. The rib bruised ache comes and goes but can sometimes last weeks. I am scared to eat out as when my bowels go I have too run. I am only balancing on maintaining my weight, which I am now underweight, by eating bags or organic corn chips ( gross and never ate them prior to all this) My once healthy diet is not so great now trying to maintain weight and keep symptoms at bay. I can only tolerate limited cooked veg and no raw. My mum was very similar, in the end before removal she couldnt eat anything at all without symptoms being triggered and some days this is whats happening to me, she can now eat whatever she likes many years after removal. I am even drinking chanca piedra and taking liver tonics and bitter suppliments, have for several months now, but no luck. I am guessing mine cannot be saved! So i will frequent this site for support and advice after removal to help heal.

  27. I had my gallbladder removed in 2015 and have been relatively ok since but after reading this article I am a bit concerned as I didnt get any information about diet or not being able to absorb vitamins. I also have a sleep disorder and was looking into taking herbal tea with valerian root in the ingredients, the brand I use is Pukka, I have just started taking this and it is helping a bit with the sleep issue, however I read that people with liver problems should avoid valerian, I think its in a small enough quantity in the tea but is it a risk for me I was wondering to be taking this as I have had my gallbladder removed. I dont have a chronic liver problem that I am aware of but with the gallbladder and liver linked I wasnt sure. I would appreciate any advice on this matter.

    • Hi Mike,

      After gallbladder removal bile function is impaired which can cause digestive problems.
      It is also common for liver dysfunction to occur after gallbladder removal as extra work is put on the liver.
      To check liver function we recommend you get an ultrasound scan and/or liver function test.
      We recommend you avoid gluten, dairy, processed foods and takeout meals.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take
      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals three times daily to replace the bile that is no longer coming from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.
      N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs please take with meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get the liver better faster.
      Magnesium Complete 2 tabs 1/2 before bed OR Magnesium Ultra Potent Powder 1/2 tsp 1/2 before bed to promote a deep, relaxing sleep.

  28. Can I still take glutathione capsules after my gallbladder has been removed?

    • Hi Irene,

      Certainly you can take glutathione after your gallbladder has been removed.
      We recommend taking N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) which is the precursor to glutathione and is the most effective way of raising levels in your body.
      It is essential to take Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals three times daily to replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.

  29. I had my gallbladder removed 3 months after I had my daughter, it’s been almost 6 years. During my pregnancy I lost a lot of weight due to the nauseas & morning sickness. After I had my gallbladder removed my weight was 110-115, the first few years it took me a lot to gain weight my doctor told me I had to get back on my normal weight which is 125. Since 2014 I been noticing I’m gaining weight a lot, I’ve tried to be on a diet which is hard and I’ve tried and drink weight loss supplements but it seems like nothing works. Im looking for an something that could help me a diet or if I really can lose weight. Im tired of people calling me fat it hurts my feelings every time I hear that. I don’t know what to do anymore. Currently I’m staring a new diet and drinking hydroxicut I don’t know if it would work please if somebody has any suggestions let me know I will really appreciate it.

    • Hi Astrid,

  30. In 2012 I had my daughter and then after several months I had the worse pain ever, so my bf took me to the hospital and the dr said that my gallbladder had to be taken out. So, after my gallbladder was taken out I was fine. I had gone diarrhea several days which I thought was normal because that same situation happen to me before I had my daughter. So, when I had gone into the dr for a follow up he had asked me if everything was alright and I told him yes. but, it didn’t stop there after a month I knew something was wrong. But, didn’t have the time to be able to go back over there. I don’t have any pain but anytime I eat anything doesn’t matter what it is. Or even if I don’t eat anything it happens. What should I do?

    Help,

  31. I had my gallbladder removed in 2015 and I still can’t properly poop. Every month I feel like I poop well a couple times and the rest of the month its just yellow diarrhea. Sometimes I also get really bad cramps. Stress, heat/cold and my period also cause diarrhea. Every time I leave my house I feel very paranoid that if there isn’t a washroom near me I’m going to poop my pants. Because of this I have depression and bad anxiety. I can’t go anywhere or do the things I want to because this is all I think about. I am currently taking fibre capsules and bile salts.

  33. I had my gallbladder removed 2 years ago tomorrow. Prior to having my gallbladder removed I felt sluggish and just not right. HIDA scan showed my gallbladder was functioning at 17%. I also have gastritis, H plylori. Since my gallbladder removal I have been having trouble sleeping. I just started taking vitamin D3, I’ve only been taking these for a few days so I haven’t seen any benefits yet.
    I do occasionally get diarrhea but mostly when I eat salad for some crazy reason! I typically feel bloated and gasy, especially in the evenings.
    I too have experienced pain in the area of where my gallbladder was and have had tests ran and scans and have found nothing. However, I have found that having someone push on my back in that area and then repeat in the front helps and subsides for months and the will come back. Scar tissue perhaps??
    I’m not a heavy person and never have been but have gained 10 ponunds since my gallbladder removal. I am now 41 so that may have something to do with it too.
    I don’t like going to the doctor as they look at me like I’m crazy and say I shouldn’t have any problems since my gallbladder is gone. Plus I also prefer a natural approach to my problems. I have taken Stomach B20 which is Marshmallow root with much success for my stomach issues and I do take Clairitin for allergies.
    If you have any suggestions for me I would greatly appreciate it any input you may have.

    • Hi Steph,

      It is very common after gallbladder removal to get a fatty liver if you are not following the correct diet.
      We recommend you eliminate all fatty foods, processed foods, gluten and dairy.
      There is an excellent easy-to-follow diet plan in Dr Cabot’s book: ‘Fatty Liver: You Can Reverse It’.
      To diagnose a fatty liver you will need to get an ultrasound scan and liver function test.
      Dr Cabot recommends you take

      • Bactoclear will clear up gastritis? My doctor told me I have to live with it for the rest of my life!
        Also, I have had the blood tests and scan and they showed nothing. Is there anything more specific that I should ask for?

        • Hi Steph,

          Bactoclear is actually an Australian supplement.
          So instead we recommend
          Intestinal Parasite Cleanse 1 cap three times daily as it is a very powerful cleanser to clear out unfriendly microorganisms. After 2 weeks increase dosage to two cups three times daily for up to two months.
          L-glutamine plus Colostrum 1 scoop (5.6g) daily with water or juice to help heal the intestinal lining.

      If you are prediabetic then gluten free foods are also best removed from your diet.

      Please remove everything from your diet that is not fresh vegetables (no potatoes), good quality protein and the occasional serve of fruit.

      This may be a candida issue and Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking
      Betaine – 2 – 4 capsules at the beginning of each meal.

      Glicemic Balance – 2 capsules at the beginning of each meal.

      Selenomune Designer Energy – 1 capsule daily.

  36. Hi Jessah, can you advise me please I’m 40 years old and have diverticulitis disease since 2012. I have no gallbladder I mean I was born without gallbladder and I worry about it a lot. Also I have gas pain especially after eat protein food. Which food should I beware since I don’t have gallbladder? Thank you so much.

    • Hi Ben,

      Dr Cabot recommends

      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals three times daily as this will replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption.

      Livatone Plus caps 2 twice daily to improve liver function.

      NAC 2 caps twice daily at least two hours away from food, if any upset occurs take with food. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to hasten liver healing.

      These supplements are all available here: https://shop.liverdoctor.com

      We recommend you avoid all gluten containing foods, sugar, dairy and processed foods.

  37. I had my gallbladder removed about 8 months ago and I cant stop losing weight. I went from 136 to 117 in less than a month and now im at 103 and still dropping. Im afraid if i lose any more ill die. Ive tried nearly everything but i cant afford to buy fancy supplements all the time. How can i gain weight if nothing i eat will stay with me long enough? Please help!

    • Hi Gina,

      Any unexplained significant weightloss should be discussed with your doctor, to ensure there is no serious cause.

      In general, weightloss can occur after gallbladder surgery, as digestion and absorption of fats is impaired and this may also cause diarrhoea. Ox Bile and Digestive Enzymes will help. The Save Your gallbladder Naturally’ book explains what to do after gallbladder surgery. There is also more information at this link http://www.liverdoctor.com/liver-problems/gallbladder/

      Kind Regards,

      Parasitic infections can also cause weight loss and may lead to more serious problems if left untreated. These can be tested for by your doctor.

    • Going threw the samething Gina , I had surgery January 10 2017 . For me it started in November, loose stools and diarrhea lost 15 pounds felt like crap… now post op still just dealing with loose stools I go to the batheroom between 3-5 times a day sucks.

  38. Hello.
    I have a very strange pain under my right side rib cage, sometimes just around the front, and sometimes it spreads almost to the back. The strangest thing is that the pain starts every day at the same time, around 1PM and continues for 2 – 3 hours. CT scan didn’t show any abnormalities, except for fatty liver. BTW, my gallbladder was removed about 18 – 20 years ago. The pain started about 5 – 6 months ago, when I started voluntarily loose weight, just reducing amount of consumed food and avoiding sweets. For last 5.5 months I lost 60lb, from 345lb to 285lb.
    Any opinion, advice?
    Thanks.

    • Hi Boris,

      Fatty liver can cause upper right quadrant pain, although there may be other causes. The fact that it starts at the same time every day is interesting – it could be related to digestive issues and diet. Digestion will be compromised as the gall bladder was removed. The weight loss is quite significant, but not too surprising with the change in diet. I recommend you follow the advice in Dr Cabot’s books on the Gallbladder and ‘Fatty Liver – You can Reverse It’. Take LivaTone Plus 2 capsules twice daily, NAC 1 capsule 2 to 3 times a day, ½ hour before food. Vitamin C and MSM powder 1 tspn daily and Ox Bile in the middle of meals and raw juicing.
      How long ago was the CT scan? It would be advisable to see your GP for further testing to exclude the possibility of anything more serious.

      • Thank you, Jessah, for detailed reply. CT scan was performed about 2 months ago. Not many changes from the previous one. What do you think about possibility of Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction? I’ve heard that in this case the pain starts around the same time daily. If so, does your list of recommendations still the same?

        Regards,
        Boris

        • Hi Boris,

          Sorry for the delayed response.

          Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction refers to the inability of the Sphincter of Oddi (the smooth muscle that surrounds the end portion of the common bile duct and pancreatic duct) to contract and relax in a normal fashion. This may cause obstruction of bile flow resulting in biliary pain and obstruction to the flow of pancreatic juice, which can lead to pancreatitis.

          The cause of Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction is unknown, however one of the current theories is the presence of microscopic stones in the bile and duodenal inflammation.

          The recommendations would still be the same, with the objective of dissolving any microscopic stones and ensuring that bile is healthy and inflammation is reduced. A magnesium supplement, such as Magnesium Complete may be helpful in relieving and preventing spasms of the sphincter.

          For more information and orthodox treatment, have a look at http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/gastroenterology_hepatology/diseases_conditions/faqs/sphincter_oddi_dysfunction.html

      I’m thinking of have them go back in and check for scar tissue or maybe a nerve was damaged. I don’t know but I can’t take it after any more.

        • Hi Rosanna,

          We recommend you avoid grains, dairy and processed foods.

          Dr Cabot recommends

          Ox Bile 1 – 2 caps three times daily in the middle of meals, this will replace the bile that can no longer come from the gallbladder for essential fat absorption.

          Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function.

          We suggest you follow a diet based on fresh fruits and vegetables, good protein sources such as lean meat, poultry and seafood, and good fat sources such as avocado, nuts, seeds and seafood.

  39. I had my gallbladder tookin out about a month ago… ever since wen i eat i get nausea and bad headaches… im not bloated i dont have diarrhea or anything else… is that normal?

    • Hi Rico,

      You need to avoid grains, dairy and processed foods.
      I recommend you take Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily so that your liver can start to make healthy bile and Ox Bile 1 – 2 capsules in the middle of every meal to replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption. I also recommend you take 1 tsp daily of Magnesium Ultra Potent Powder that will help alleviate pain associated with headaches.

  40. I had my Gall bladder removed just a month ago and i’m still suffering from back pain in my upper butt, Is it natural effect of surgery which will go eventually or it will last for sometime?

    Please advise for how long it will take for me to recover myself from this surgery as i want to go back to Gym activities at the earliest.

    Regards.
    Edwin.

    • Hi Edwin,

      After having your gallbladder removed it is important to have replacement bile and Dr Cabot produces an excellent product to supply this most valuable substance.

      We recommend

      Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps three times daily with each main meal to assist absorption of fats.

      Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to improve liver function

      NAC 2 caps twice daily at least 2 hours away from food, if any upset occurs take at beginning of meals. NAC works well with Livatone Plus to hasten liver healing.

      Being able to absorb most of your fats may reduce symptoms significantly.

  41. I still have my gallbladder but recently had a blood test that showed c-reactive protein level of 5.7 and an ultrasound that showed thickening of the gallbladder and stones, the recommendation is that I should have the gallbladder removed. I had those tests done because in late Nov/Dec I was having recurrent episodes of ab swelling, gas, occasional ab pains, and low-grade fever (90-99.8). What I’m wondering is whether my symptoms warrant having the surgery done and dealing with the post surgery issues or whether they will subside on their own. With diet modifications and use of probiotics in past month, the symptoms I used to have have lessened considerably and I feel fine.

    • Hi Mary,

      You only have mild inflammation and there is no rush to have it out.
      You need to have a HIDA scan to see if it is working.
      In the meantime Dr Cabot recommends you take Livatone Plus 2 capsules twice daily with food, and Ox Biel capsules 1 – 2 in middle of meals. I recommend you read our books: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do If You’ve Already Lost It’ and ‘Raw Juices Can Save Your Life’.

  42. I can’t figure out a good multivitamin to take without feeling like knives are attacking my insides. I was taking Thrive Gluten-Free shake (with Coconut Milk) because it has all the essential vitamins I need. I had to stop because the cramping inside my stomach (or colon) was absolutely horrific. What do you recommend?

    • Dear Doreen,

      What are your reasons for taking a multivitamin?
      If you have had your gallbladder out I would recommend Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily to optimise liver function and Ox Bile 1 – 2 caps three times daily before meals to replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption.
      It is very important that you eliminate or reduce grains, dairy and processed foods.
      Apple cidar vinegar in middle of meals will also help with digestion.

  44. I am so glad I came across this information but I do have a question. So I had my gallbladder removed in 2006 after suffering with it for over a year on a daily basis (pain would sometimes be so bad that I thought for sure I was having a heart attack and made several trips to the ER during this time). When I woke up after surgery the doctor told me my gallbladder was completely full of sludge and stones. After I had it removed, I didn’t have any problems and all of my pain/digestive isues were gone until about 9 months ago. Now I have a constant dull pain under my left breast that continues down to almost bellybutton level (this pain becomes so much worse about half an hour after I eat anything and will continue to be a 10/10 sometimes for a few hours after eating), I am nauseous all the time, have diarrhea pretty much daily and I can not lie down (not even with my head elevated) for at least an hour after eating anything or else I will vomit. I already eat a gluten free diet, don’t eat meat, no dairy and no alcohol. What is going on with me? I am so tired of dealing with these things. Has anyone else experienced these things, and if so, could you please tell me what made it better for you? Oh, also, I don’t know if this matters but I am a 33 year old female. Thank you.

    • Hi Terri,

      We recommend you have another ultrasound to determine the cause of the pain, because it may be caused by many things.

      Your symptoms certainly seem to be liver oriented and we would expect pain to be under the right breast if it is solely the liver.

      After gallbladder removal, it becomes difficult to absorb dietary fats because there is not the amount of bile being delivered into the digestive tract to emulsify them.

      Without bile, liver metabolites are not able to be removed from the body efficiently and this leads to increased inflammation.

      Ox Bile capsules – 1 – 2 capsules at the beginning of each meal to replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption.

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing. This supplement is the precursor nutrient of glutathione; the body’s strongest anti-oxidant.

      Berberine – 1 capsule three times daily. To balance blood glucose, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, reduce anxiety, alleviate depression, and support a healthy intestinal flora.

  45. I had a gall bladder removed (2010) like most people on here. I found digestive enzymes helped bloating, other than that I am sure that there are a lot of people out there who have had gall bladders removed and not had too many problems since, so don’t lose hope. I then had a stone block a duct between the liver and the pancreas 2016 which made me very ill indeed – vomiting, jaundice, infection and hospitalisation. The gastroenterologist removed it and cut a hole from the stomach ? into the colon so that future stones could pass without a problem(hopefully).

    I have since put on a bit of weight and have the odd discomfort in the liver area but I find digestive enzymes stop the bloating which is a horrible and sometimes embarrassing affliction. I am nearly 80.

    There are worse things out there in the bad health world than having gall bladder problems so think positive. These days there are medicines and better help available which never existed in days gone by. We are lucky.

  46. Hi after reading through all these comments of which was helpful in the fact that I felt that I am not alone here are the symptons of which I am currently suffering every day with at present.
    I have pain mainly under and in my left side of my ribs and rib cage which can go into my back, I feel quite sick and drained an awful lot. I have constant diarehoa to which extent my medication does not seem to work to stop this.
    My stomach is constantly noisy and churning all the time feels like an errupting volcano.
    I would appreciate it if someone could recommend something to settle this as I would atleast like to feel better from this as I already have Mulitiple Sclerosis and IBS which is bad enough.
    Many thanks
    Sylvia Hams

    • Dear Sylvia,

      Have you had a scan of your internal organs to check where the pain is coming from?
      Have you had a feces test to check for parasites?
      Eliminating gluten, dairy products and sugar from your diet would probably help your digestion.

      Kind Regards,
      Jessah Robinson

    • Sylvia,

      Your symptoms sound like what I was dealing with when I was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Please go see your doctor.

      Best wishes!

      Jes

    • Sylvia I had the exact same issues. I take a probiotic now it is culturelle it does help a lot but not perfect. I do recommend to give it a try

    • Sylvia, I was having the same pain in the same area and my doctor said it was Diverticulitis. Easy to fix if it isn’t too constant. Mine would come and go so not too serious. He reccommended buying All Bran Buds (not flakes, the buds which look like little mouse droppings (his words exactly)). Eat 1/3 cup of those with your breakfast. Drink lots of water to help the buds expand and let the Psyllium work.

      I still have the noises in my guts, he says it’s normal.

      I would also go have it checked out as a precaution.

    • I have had my gallbladder and appendix removed surgically 30+ yrs ago. I found the article to be very accurate for me. My stomach gave me the same trouble you are having. I am gluten free (very strict) now and my stomach is very happy. No more awful stomach aches the bloating is gone and no more stool problems. I can’t tolerate certain foods any longer, weird things like raw cucumbers, green bell peppers, and watermelon will make me vomit and give me horrible indigestion.

    • Ask to have a test for bile acid malabsorption. Your symptoms was same as mine. I have just been diagnosed with BAM. Good luck

  47. I had my gallbladder removed beginning of Oct 2016. I haven’t felt right since. My Dr. spotted a polyp in my gallbladder and thank God non-cancerous. But,….still I have been suffering with my digestion ever since. I bloat real easy. I eat small and blow up. I cry cuz I am so uncomfortable. I can’t wear my regular Office Attire – I can only wear my yoga pants. My Dr didn’t say to come back if I had any problems. So, I can’t tell you how grateful I found you guys and your great advice. I am def. going to buy the Ox Bile and the Livatone. I want to live again, not just eat, but I really have been suffering. I have 3 years before I can retire from work, so I def. need to get through …lol!!! thank you, God Bless you!!!

    • julianne de Medici

      I had the same experience but I started taking a high quality digestive enzyme when I eat anything (not all enzymes are alike, however) and ox bile salt. That is the key. It takes some time for your body to adjust to the change, but give the two recommendations a shot. You might want to start out with a lower dose of ox bile and go from there. Usually they come in 125 and 500 mg- try 125 to start. I use 500 and sometimes take two at one time.

  48. “First of all it’s important to realise that you developed a gallbladder problem in the first place because you had an unhealthy liver.”

    I’m sorry, but the above quote is not entirely accurate and needs to be updated please.

    Scientists aren’t entirely sure why gallstones even develop, AT ALL. There are MANY known reasons one can develop gallstones and “Yes” – An unhealthy liver MAY be one of those reasons for a select-few; but it is definitely not the ONLY reason for developing gallbladder complications.

  49. My gallbladder was removed 3 weeks ago. my initial complaints was difficulty to swallow and heartburn. I still have this problem with swallowing and heartburn. my surgeon said I must still drink my acid reflux tablets for the next three months. will the swallowing problem and heartburn ever go away? must I avoid any foods?

    • Dear Natasha,

      Your swallowing concerns and heartburn may be reflux and we recommend you remove all gluten from your diet for 4-6 weeks and see if this symptom goes away.
      You should also eliminate dairy and processed foods to remedy these symptoms.

      Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking:
      – Ox Bile: 1 – 2 capsules at the beginning of each meal to replace the bile that can no longer be delivered form your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption.
      – Livatone Plus: 2 capsules twice daily to improve liver function.
      – NAC: 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals.
      These supplements are all available at http://www.liverdoctor.com.

      • Jessah,

        Can these recommendation of supplements be taken by someone who has celiac disease? I had my gallbladder removed back in June 2016 and I just haven’t been the same. My doctor didn’t really recommend anything after the surgery and to be honest didn’t explain anything of what I should lookout for after. I am very thankful I found this article.

        • Dear Julie,

          Livatone Plus and Ox Bile are both gluten free, so you should have no issue taking these.

  50. Hi, to all those of you who have had their gall bladder removed. Have you since ever suffered or do suffer with slight bowel leakage! Not sure if this problem has anything to do with have the bladder removed but would like to know if I am alone with this problem?

    • Jut came across this site. Had my gb removed nearly 14yrs ago. Since than I have ibs and now bowel incontinence. I felt like I had wet myself but when I check it is bowel leakage. A few yrs ago maybe 10yrs, I had a bowel prolapse and I had an operation to fix that, but now I’m left with nerve damage in my rectum, so I don’t realize when I’ve soiled myself. I take an antidepressant to relax my stomach when I am nervous or upset. I have always been hypothyroid since birth and that can cause digestive issues as well. But growing up I was never overweight like I am now, although that may just be an age/menopause thing, as I am now 60.

      • Dear Linda,

        Since you no longer have a gallbladder, it would be very beneficial to take an ox bile supplement. That should reduce IBS symptoms. Avoiding gluten, dairy products and sugar should also help to improve your bowel health and digestive comfort. Typically avoiding those foods also results in weight loss.
        We have a book that would help you: http://shop.liverdoctor.com/save-your-gallbladder.html

  52. Hello, My gallbladder was removed couple months back. I am now 7 weeks pregnant. What can I do to ensure my body is absorbing all the nutrients from the food and vitamins I take now? what would be the best course here? I am bit nervous to try herbs and supplements since don’t know what would be the effect on unborn child.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    • Dear Ginger,

      The most important supplement to take is a comprehensive digestive enzymes formula that contains ox bile (which you don’t produce as much of since having your gallbladder removed). This will help to increase nutrient absorption and is safe and beneficial during pregnancy: http://shop.liverdoctor.com/digestive-enzymes-super-100-capsules.html

Can I take the ox bile of any kind is it safe for the baby I feel so sick I’m uncomfortable everyday. I feel like I’m not digesting anything.

        • Hi Maril,

          The bile in our capsules is from cattle and is beneficial to introduce a concentrated dose to increase fat absorption into the body.

          Many primary care practitioners recommend gallbladder patients reduce the fat content of foods they eat. Unfortunately this can lead to constipation.

          Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking

          Ox Bile capsules – 1 – 2 capsules at the beginning of each meal to replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption.

          Super Digestive Enzymes – 1 capsule at the beginning of each meal.

          Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to improve liver function.

          N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing.

          Magnesium Ultrapotent – ½ teaspoon twice daily in a little water.

  53. Had mine out in 1989. Dr said it was the smaller one he had ever taken out. OX BILE supplement is a must! Every time I forget mine for more than 2 days I have all kinds of problems.
    Thank you for this article. I now know where my Vitamin D deficiency comes from.
    Are there any medicines that metabolize in the gall bladder, therefore rendering them ineffective?

    • Dear VLB,

      The gallbladder is designed to store and concentrate the bile that is produced in the liver, it does not metabolise any substances at all.

      Bile contains metabolites of drugs and nutrients that have been produced in the liver.

      In your case, the bile and metabolites will be released directly into the digestive tract as it is produced and there will not be enough at any time to emulsify your dietary fats to enable them to be absorbed into your body, hence the need for ox-bile capsules.

      Kind Regards,
      Jessah

  54. I had mine removed at 15 but since then ive had reaaaaally baaaaad heartburn

  55. I had mine removed many years ago, and yes I went through hell see my dr didn’t take the time to explain the good and bad about the surgery or how to take care of myself all and all I was in the dark,the other day I went to a new dr,she told me that I had thyroid, cholesterol, liver infection, she gave me vitamin D,thyroid medication, and said she couldn’t give me cholesterol meds yet so I took the thyroid pill twice, why only twice because the pain I felt was to much to bear don’t know why but when I see the Dr again I hope that she may be able to explain why?the discomfort,,for the last few years my body has gone from bad to worse, I can’t explain it but here’s one of many different feeling I experienced, I’m 60 now and the way my stomach feels some times its like having a baby moving around in side (had 5 children) so I know what that feels like, dizzy,confessed ,so get a second opinion .

    • How did you find this out? Did they take blood tests for your thyroid cholesterol and liver infection? I’m curious because I worry about the same thing. I’m getting mine taken out soon and I want to make sure EVERYTHING else is functioning ok.

    • Did you get any answers about the strange movements? I also get that weird feeling like there’s a baby moving around. Sometimes it’s really sudden and only happens every now and then. So strange.

  56. I had my gall bladder removed 3 years ago. I had severe swelling, weiht gain, loss of appetite, chillblains prior to the surgery. After the surgery, I have felt much better, less stress, less joint pain, but prone to severe constipation, cannot eat any oily foods.
    I have much more energy but immediately after the surgery, I went straight into menopause. I had regular periods right up until the surgery. What is the connection between gall bladder removal and early menopause and hormones? Happy to feel well, but was not ready for menopause.
    I can tell that I changed immediately.

    • Dear Amy,

      Dr Cabot says there may be a correlation between surgery and menopause in that the anaesthetic may have affected your ovaries and eggs.

      We recommend you wait 3 months before having both an FSH and AMH test to determine if you have truly entered your menopausal phase.

      Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking

      Femme Phase – 2 capsules twice daily to ease the discomfort of menopausal symptoms.

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. As you will see from the attached pamphlet this supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing. This supplement is the precursor nutrient of glutathione; the body’s strongest anti-oxidant.

      Kind Regards,
      Jessah

    • when did you have that surgery down?

  57. Had gallbladder removed 3 years ago. Feel pretty good and swelling is gone. My sexual urge has completely died.Early menopause occured immediately afterward!
    Any one experience this? I feel I am too tyoung. Othetwise, fine!

    • How old are you? I went through perimenopause after having mine removed and also lost sex drive. I was approx 45 – same age that my mum went through menopause, so have never really thought about the fact that it was after gall bladder surgery before.

      • JayX, thank you for your reply.
        I was a young 50. I was not having any premenopausal symptoms
        and had regular periods and ovulated. I didn’t mind becoming menopausal naturally, but was not at all ready to give up a healthy sex life.
        I was told I am 50 by the doctor. And I get that. I just know there is a connection between being healthy one week and having absolutely no sex drive later.
        I feel like I just entered a new phase immediately after the surgery.Lost spunk, vim, vigor, and worse, ambition. Not depressed because even that is gone. I even do not anger easily…
        Kind of like after surgery, “hmmm” is my lackluster resonse.
        Even current elections ate like…”hmmmm, that”s interesting.”
        Not cynical. Still care, but without passion.
        All after gb surgery. Feel like the gb may be more important than we recognize.

        • Ditto all the above Amy, (I’m 51) just like reading everything that has happened to me. The Doctors should have explained the consequences of ripping out our gall bladders without our informed permission in most cases or try a diet alternative first in the hope of reversal and the fact we now need digestive enzymes to help us digest our food properly. I 150% believe I developed the auto immune disease Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis as a direct result of that negligence. If I had not found an alternative practitioner who taught me about gut health and told me that i had to completely change my whole way of life particularly what to eat without your GB to stay healthy I would probably still be overweight, high blood pressure, sick most of the time with diarrhea and insomnia. Thanks to his care and teaching I am normal weight, no blood pressure, sleep well, eat a natural nourishing delicious healthy diet and have my energy back. Shame on our medical doctors for not disclosing all the facts about taking this Majorly Important Organ out of our bodies. Vent Done!

          • Hi Mel,

            Could you please share the lifestyle changes that you made. What’s your diet like? Im experiencing all the negative effects that you mentioned. Thanks!

          • Wow this sight has helped me tremendously. I cannot believe my doctor didn’t warn me either.i had my gb removed 8 years ago and have a liver test done alot as I have fatty liver high cholesterol and have gained 40 lbs. My doctor acted as if it was all because of getting older. I take vitamin d-3 because of a deficiency. And have no sex drive. My husband has seen a huge change in me but we never ever associated it to having my gall bladder removed.

        • 50 is not really early for you to go through the change. I went throu mine from the age of 45 and was told by my doctor that is not unusual to go throu at that age.

        • I don’t know the relation to GB surgery but I can tell you that being under general anesthesia can completely alter your body chemistry in a way that does not return to normal. Actually any physical ‘trauma’ such as surgery, a car acciden etc. Can shock your body’s hormonal balance. I broke my back and was put into menopause overnight after waking up from general anesthetic for many many hours….and I mean overnight! It was awful. I immediately started having hot flashes night sweats changes in skin and hair forgetfulness and other extreme menopausal symptoms immediately after within a day of surgery.

  58. Had gallbladder removed 3 years ago. Feel pretty good and swelling is gone. My sexual urge gas completely died.Early menopause occufred immediately afterward!
    Any one experience this?

  59. Hi there,
    Had my gall bladder removed a week ago today. I often have a sore back either side of spine, and after eating. I feel bloated and gassy. I still have my plasters covering my wounds but have bandaged my whole stomach as I feel I need to support it all the time. My surgeon told me the day after surgery to eat normally…I was quite surprised.

    • Dear Gail,

      You need to start taking Livatone Plus caps 2 twice daily and Ox Bile in middle of meals.
      You should also take NAC 2 caps twice daily well away from food.
      These can all be purchased at http://www.liverdoctor.com.
      You need to eliminate or reduce refined grains, sugar and processed foods from your diet.
      Focus on eating good protein sources, good fats and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
      For more information you should read our book: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do If You’ve Already Lost It’.
      Raw juicing is also excellent.
      Let us know how you get on.

      • Jessah – what would you recommend for a vegan to do after gall bladder removal please? Just the Livertone?

        • Dear Jay,

          I would recommend Livatone Plus 2 caps twice a day, and Ox Bile three times a day in middle of meals.
          You will need to eliminate or reduce sugar, dairy and processed foods.
          Focus on eating good protein sources, good fats and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

  60. I had my gallbladder removed a year ago. I have been getting upper back pain(bra line area) also pain under my breast area. Also just recently when I eat it feels like my food does not go down like I have something stuck in my throat. I don’t know if that is heartburn. I have never had it before.

    • Dear Mary,

      Your swallowing concerns may be reflux and we recommend you remove all gluten from your diet for 4-6 weeks and see if this symptom goes away.

      The pain you are experiencing may be due to liver enlargement, which is usually due to fatty liver and Dr Cabot recommends you obtain her book ‘Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It’ and follow the eating plan to revitalise your liver for best possible health.

      Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking

      Ox Bile capsules – 1 – 2 capsules at the beginning of each meal to replace the bile that can no longer be delivered from your gallbladder to help essential fat absorption.

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. As you will see from the attached pamphlet this supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing.

    • Hi Mary Salazar, i have exactly the same problem that you are feeling BUT i have not yet removed the gallbladder my doctor says it is the one which is giving me those problems

  61. i did my gallbllader removel surgery last week .i dont hv any problem yet m taking normal food but after reading comments one thing that came on my mind is everyone except me hv to face problems while i dont hv then m I a normal person 🙁

    • Dear Jolly,

      Of course you’re normal, you may not have any problems or it may take years for problems to occur.
      To reduce the chances of any issues occurring, make sure to avoid or reduce refined foods, sugar, alcohol and processed foods.
      You will need to focus on a diet with plenty of protein, good fats and fresh fruits and vegetables.
      If problems do occur, I recommend you purchase Ox Bile and Livatone Plus off liver doctor.com.
      For more information read Dr Cabot’s book ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What To Do if You’ve Already Lost it’.

      Kind Regards,

  62. My gall bladder has been removed for over three years now. Intense pain under right rib, no control over stools, gain weight even after running so much to toilet, always tired but cant sleep, if i dare to laugh pain increase under right rib, pharmacist explain to me today that it could happen that my body cant digest all the bail currently in my body, cant run or walk far before loose stool end up in my running shorts, embaressing and interfere with life expectancy. Was in good health for three years, winning 5 kilo marathons, now it seemed that gastro ruled my life, the weight gain terrifies me. Pharmacist put me on liver and gall bladder problems solution and salts of natura and had i have to switch to a high protein diet which i will start tomorrow, i do not like meat but if it is going to help to get rid of the weight gain, pain under right rib and continuous running to the demm toilet i will change my lifestyle. i thought i eat healthy – joghurt with fruits and nuts, love my coffee and flax oil in joghurt with peptan powder and omega 3 oils, apparently i was wrong. So, tomorrow i will start my day with oats, two eggs, eat meat more or less near raw, with patats and white rice, no more cheese, milk, berries or nuts or joguurt. no milk in coffee, and my glass of wine is a big no. How boring, but what can one do? i am in constant pain and washing my running c;othws is no fun, it is ugly.

    • Dear Tessa,

      When you no longer have a gallbladder it is not possible to absorb your dietary fats.

      To correct this Dr Cabot recommends you take 1 to 2 Ox Bile Capsules with each meal.

      The pain under your right rib cage is a classic symptom of an enlarged liver and will respond well to a change of diet and the best one is included in Dr Cabot’s book ‘Fatty Liver – You Can Reverse It’

      Dr Cabot also recommends you begin taking

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals.

  63. Got a question for any one who has their gallbladder removed. A friend told me they used to eat onions all the time, but since losing their gallbladder eating them, even in a soup causes problems. Has anyone ever heard of this.

    • Yes, I’ve had that issue with onions after the surgery. They cause increase in gas/bloated ness. It took almost a year after my gallbladder removal for multiple symptoms to arise.

    • I can no longer eat onions after having mine removed.

    • It has been 40 years since my GB surgery. From day one I had trouble digesting any food in cabbage family, including onions. But in last few years I have had difficulty digesting even a very small amount of onion. In addition have many food intolerances in last 10 years. My symptoms are reflux during night affecting quality of sleep, some nausea, bouts of diarrhea.

      • Hi Mary,

        We recommend you eliminate grains, sugar, dairy, processed food and takeout meals.
        Please remove any additional foods that are causing grief, and then you may wish to reintroduce once you’ve improved your gut health.
        We recommend you follow the dietary guidelines in the above article.
        For further information we recommend you read Dr Cabot’s book ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do If You’ve Already Lost It’.
        We recommend you take
        Ox Bile 1 to 2 caps in the middle of meals to replace the bile that can no longer come from your gallbladder for essential fat absorption.
        Super Digestive Enzymes 1 to 2 in the middle of meals to reduce digestive symptoms and improve nutrient absorption.
        Livatone Plus 1 cap twice daily to improve liver function.

    • I had my gallbladder removed and also border libe creatinine can i take the can i take the ox bile capsule and livatone? Becuase nausea and abdominal pain and now i had this very disturbing pain in my back

  65. Hello all –

    I had my gallbladder removed a year and a half ago. I didn’t have stones, Dr. said it was just “Abnormal” and needed to be removed. I am living with regret at not pursuing other options besides surgery. Anyway, some days are better than others but most days I have diarrhea at some point, itchy skin, peeling on my fingertips and constant feeling of very low energy along with general, weird pains and discomfort throughout my abdomen. I currently take a daily liver rescue pill, a pro-biotic and a multi vitamin. Again some days are better than others but, it is quite demoralizing having this constant feeling of general malaise. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Positive thoughts of hope to all,

    Cheers,
    Chris

    • Dear Chris,

      You need to avoid sugar, grains and dairy products.
      There is plenty of info in Dr Cabot’s book ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do if You’ve Already Lost it’.
      You should take Livatone Plus 2 caps daily, and Ox Bile in middle of meals.
      I’m not sure what’s in the liver pill you’re currently taking but our Livatone Plus contains St Mary’s Thistle, Turmeric, all the B vitamins, Selenium, Taurine and Folinic Acid.
      You should also start Raw Juicing.
      There are plenty of great recipes in our book ‘Raw Juicing Can Save Your Life’.
      Begin each day with 1/2 of a lemon in warm to hot water.

      Kind Regards,
      Jessah

          Hello Angie,

  66. My gallbladder was removed 3 weeks ago but I still have indigestion/constipation, frequent bowel movements, most of the time immediately after lunch and too tired/sleepy feeling. What should I do?

  68. I had my gall bladder removed a little over 2 yrs ago. This weekend I had set back which mimicked the gall Stone attack, just not quite as intense or painful, but extremely uncomfortable none the less. I got through it after 3 days and I’m not feeling the pain in my rib cage and back anymore. I drank Smooth move tea with peppermint last night and today I am having some diarrhea and my whole right side and lower intestines is in so much pain! In tHoughton it was gas but it had me curled up on my bed almost sweating and feeling sick. Pain is definitely a 9 right now. So I’m searching for answers and found this. Great info. But is it possible I’m pasing a stone? I don’t know what that feels like but it feels like something is stuck because the pain is not passing and I feel like throwing up!

  69. Hello. I have been told that I have sludge in my gallbladder and also have a fatty liver. The doctors want to take my gallbladder & I have surgery scheduled next week. A friend directed me to this article and now I’m having concerns that I might make the liver situation worse! I’m trying to make changes to improve my health as I’m a “classic” American junk eater, but the immediate question is whether to cancel surgery or not!

    • Dear Danny,

      Surgery is rarely necessary for gallbladder sludge. It is probably not required unless the walls of your gallbladder are inflamed or infected, or sludge is blocking a bile duct.

      Kind Regards,
      Jessah

  70. I have recently had my gallbladder removed… one of the symptoms I am finding is a loss of apatite and nausia , is this normal?

    • Dear Lesley,

      Yes, these are common occurrences.
      They can be resolved if you follow the suggestions in the article ‘Things you must know if you don’t have a gallbladder’.
      This includes giving up sugar, grains and dairy.
      You should take Ox Bile in middle of meals, and Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily and NAC one twice daily.
      You should also begin your day with the juice of 1/2 lemon in warm to hot water.
      For further information refer to our book: ‘Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and what to do if you’ve already lost it’.

      Kind Regards,

  71. I have removed my Gallbladder five years ago I am getting Paine in my both shoulders specially night time . what I have to do ?

    • Dear Saleh,

      Pain in the shoulders responds well to:
      – Magnesium Ultrapotent Powder – 1/2 teaspoon twice daily in a little water
      0r
      – Magnesium Complete – 2 tablets twice daily
      – Curcumin Advanced Formula – 1 capsule daily, with food
      – Fish oil – 1 capsule 3 times daily

      Kind Regards,

      Jessah

  72. This article brought me so much hope.
    I had my Gallbladder removed in 2013 and have had every symptom mentioned reoccurring diarrhea, bloating, indigestion, low energy, and I am always sleepy. This has become daily life for me & I have just learned to push through. Recently I started experiencing headaches, I feel light headed, I’m forgetful, can’t concentrate and my fingers and toes go numb constantly & I’ve gained 30lbs. After a visit to my Physician, I left feeling like I might be losing my mind as my doctor feels it can be 1 of 2 things, Anxiety or a vitamin deficiency. The thought of possibly dealing with Anxiety on top of everything else scares me but after the information I’ve gathered, I’m calm & certain this is a vitamin deficiency that stems from the gall bladder removal. I have lab work schedule that will hopefully confirm this so I can begin treating the causes and be done with these symptoms. Thank You.

    • Hi there

      Please let me know if you get an answer! I had my gallbladder removed September 2012 and currently experiencing symptoms very similar to yours. Finger numbness is very weird! Am struggling with a baby and young boy to look after and desperately trying to find a way to cope.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Have a simple blood test done by a functional med doctor to determine whether you have food sensitivities. i am imagining you may be sensitive to Gluten and possibily other foods that, when completely eliminated from your diet for 6 months or more, will make a huge difference in the way you are feeling.

  73. I don’t have a gallbladder, and have high triglycerides. Will omega 3 supplements no be absorbed at all if I take them?

    • Hi Ana,

      Without a gallbladder, absorption of essential fatty acids will be impaired.
      Digestion of fats can be improved by taking a good liver tonic such as Livatone Plus and supplementing with Ox Bile.
      High triglycerides are often associated with Syndrome X, elevated insulin and fatty liver.
      Following a low carbohydrate diet – avoiding sugar, flour products, processed and fried foods and increasing vegetables and fibre can help reduce triglycerides.
      Don’t forget to include adequate protein and healthy fats in your diet.
      There is a great deal of helpful information in Dr Cabot’s books’Save Your Gallbladder Naturally and What to Do if You’ve Already Lost It’ and ‘Cholesterol: The Real Truth’.

      Kind Regards,

      Jessah

  74. Do you take Ox Bile and Digestive Enzymes?

  75. What is the treatment if you still have stomach pain nearly 10 months after gallbladder removal? My doctor says somebodies ”miss’ the function of a gallbladder. He mentioned a sachet of something, any ideas?

    • Hi Lorraine,

      You need to have hot water and the juice of ½ a lemon first thing each morning.

      Also, 1 to 2 capsules of Ox bile with each meal and Livatone Plus 2 caps twice daily.

      It could have been IBS, so I would also recommend 1 tsp of Glutamine powder in water twice daily.

      Kind Regards,

      Jessah

  76. What are the essential supplements that are needed once the gallbladder is removed. Is it ox-bile, livatone, liver detox,glutathione, digestive enzymes. The list goes on and on. Which one would you recommend?
