60% is thoroughly normal.

Ok, thank you! My friend is in this situation and her G.I doctor has referred her to a G.I surgeon to have it removed. 60% sounded good to me considering my ejection fraction was 14% when I had mine removed.

Of course a "thoroughly normal EF" is no guarantee that the gallbladder is 100% healthy but it would be unusual to have it removed without some other reasons.
