How can I combat post-gallbladder-removal belly fat and weight gain during menopause?http://www.empowher.com/community/ask/how-can-i-combat-post-gallbladder-removal-belly-fat-and-weight-gain-during-menopause

Anonymous, consider speaking with your physician, who knows your gender, age and medical history.

Cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder — a pear-shaped organ that sits just below your liver on the upper right side of your abdomen. Your gallbladder collects and stores bile — a digestive fluid produced in your liver.

I am unaware of a connection between hair loss and weight gain to removal of the gallbladder.
