Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Pancreas and gall bladder probems can be inter-related.

It is unlikely to be related to the abortion.

However, weight loss is not a good thing. It may be related to improper digestion due to gall bladder and pancreas problems and hence this needs to be investigated as soon as possible. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
