Welcome to ehealthforum

Pale clay coloured stool is indicative of lack of bile in stool and that can be due to bile duct obstruction caused by a impacted stone or can also be present in case of liver infection.You have not mentioned that why you are getting the GB removed but if it is due to stones or any infection then any obstruction before the surgery should not be there.So he has advised to rush to ER in case of pale stools.

Take Care!
