Had my gallbladder out about 5 years now. I still have problems proceessing fats and stay lowfat diet because of that. My "symptoms" got better getting rid of it - the pain under my ribs, etc. (I have one huge stone and inflammation bad). I have found that it is hard sometimes to decide whether symptoms are UC or digestive - IBS, etc. There is where WHAT I eat makes a difference.
