Weight Gain After Gallbladder Surgery

I am about to have gallbladder surgery and have heard and read on line that after surgery one will gain a lot of weight? Is this true? Does anyone have personal experience in this area?

No I have not heard that but I heard after a Hysterectomy you would. I have had to watch my weight since I had mine but most people have to after age 30, good luck.

I actually lost weight. Had surgery in '99. They tryed to do the easy way but instead I woke up with a 4inch scar on my belly. I had staples too. I was 39 yrs old newly single so maybe that was my "freudian" weight lost program. Absolutely NO PROBLEMS after surgery with any food or side effects. Good Luck I will pray for you.

My stepmom had gallbladder surgery in her late 20's or early 30's and she didn't gain a single pound but she ate the foods her doctor recommended and walked a lot.

I have a neighbor who had it done a little over two months ago so I'll ask her experience and if she has gained weight I'll let you know :-)

I had my gall bladder removed in my 40s and never had a problem with weight gain afterwords.

I had mine out last year and didn't gain any. In fact, I've lost a couple of pounds. Of course I hadn't heard about the weight gain rumor or I might have gained some. (grinz)
