Has anyone else noticed that they have put weight on since having gallbladder removed? I had my op December 2015 and since seem to eat loads. Hungry all time and gaining weight due to this.

      Not a doctorsmile but from what I understand not having gallbladder bile flows directly into the intestines all the time so food is digested or absorbed faster . But there are people that can also eat very little after having it removed. Not in our case apparantlysmile

    Hi, Mandy, sorry to learn you're having these troubles.  Try breaking the amount of calories you need to maintain the weight you want into lots of small snacks throughout the day, say, a snack every 1 1/2 or 2 hours.  Between times drink lots of water or unsweetened tea.  Stay away from all artificial sweeteners, as they mess up your gut bacteria and only make you crave more sweets and food, not less.  Use only natural sweeteners, even sugar, but sparingly. Hope this helps!

      This is interesting as my voice is so different...sounds whinny to me and I ask my son about it he said he thought it was just because I felt to crappy for a month plus after surgery. I had gained 10 lbs in one day in hospital, haven't been weighed since but most of clothes still fit right. Maybe your vocal cord issue is due to stress. Pray it improves quickly.
