Wife has had her gall bladder removed and in some cases this has caused her a bit of problem digesting fats if eaten in large amounts at once. It has not been a big problem, but an occasional problem.
Knowing what we know now, she probably would have never had her gallbladder removed. But that is water under the bridge.
With the gall bladder removed the body still produces bile just fine. But the bladder is a storage vessel that gives a bolus of bile when high fat intake is sensed. So with the gall bladder removed this bolus can not happen. A person can still digest fats just fine because the bile is still being produced. It can be a problem when too large of amount of fat at once in ingested.
One thing she has started taking when she does eat a high fat meal is bile salts. The bile salts pill is basically giving her the bolus of bile when she knows she is eating a very high saturated fat meal. It has only been a week, but it appears to be helpful. Here is a video I ran across with some information.
I don't agree with everything Dr Berg promotes, but he does study the science quite well.
Thought I would pass it along if anyone else has similar problems and see if anyone else has information on the subject.
