Gallbladder Disease Answer A16871
Hi,
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Normally, post cholecystectomy, there’s weight gain as there’s reintroduction of fats in the diet.

However, some patients may have weight loss especially those who suffer from post cholecystetomy syndrome.

Post cholecystectomy syndrome (PCS) is a collection of symptoms that affects some patients after gallbladder removal surgery.

PCS is the persistence of symptoms that were attributed to the gallbladder and that continue after its removal.

Post cholecystectomy syndrome symptoms may include gastritis, esophagitis, diarrhea or irritable bowel syndrome, pain where the gallbladder was (right upper abdomen), and colicky lower-abdomen pain.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
