I always had fatty stools years before my gallbladder surgery. After surgery, which took place 2 months ago, is even worse because I have constipation too now. Before the surgery I had no constipation.
I went to my internist and just said this is normal after removal of the gallbladder but I insisted that this was the situation years before surgery.
I m afraid to buy those Ox-Bile and Pancrease supplements on the internet because many are scam or just ineffective ( well, scam).
Should I ask to visit a gastroenterologist ?

Your gallbladder was in place to store bile and absorb fats, as you no longer have your gallbladder any fat you are eating will not be stored and will go through your system and be evacuated with your bowel movement. Do you eat a lot of fatty foods? Perhaps you should change your diet and reduce your fat intake....
Why people insist with digestive enzymes supplementation to someone without a gallblader ?
I mean the gallbladder had to go, not the pancreas. Unless the pancreas got mad from having to see his friend go and decided to stop secreting enzymes.
It's just that it is inneficient on its own to break the food without the gallbladder. So by adding more digestive enzymes ( which all are fake and hoax ) you don't help the situation.
Maybe you need more bile ( ox bile , another fake product, hoax) to replace the function of the gallbladder as much as possible. When food gets emulsified from bile then the digestive juices kick in to make it smaller and then it gets absorbed.
The digestive juices of the world won't do any good if the food was not emulsified by the bile. So these recommendations to someone without a gallbladder are hoax, fake.
I see your point regarding enzymes, but i did not suggest taking enzymes. I just suggested cutting back on fatty food intake....i think your confuding me with CTh...🤔😊
I have the same problems and I do see a gastroenterologist they told me get my gallbladder out would help with constapation for me what helps is drinking Dr Pepper. Whenever I drink Dr Pepper I am not constipated . I am not a doctor but I just realize that something that helps me. I also find it I can peaches helps . You also might want to try probiotics. It works for some people but not everyone . I am not a doctor .
I had my gallbladder out on August 28, 2018 and I am still having problems I had the same type of stool as you they tell me it's normal after gallbladder surgery but I had exact same type of stool before gallbladder surgery you can ask to see a pelvic floor specialist there is something called pelvic floor dysfunction . For me I didn't benefit from that but I know that some people do .
You can go see a pelvic floor specialist to get evaluated for that because sometimes the reason why you're constipated that's because you have to wake her to a strong pelvic floor muscles . I had IBS before the gallbladder surgery you might also help that and yes you can have both.
