In this video, we’re going to talk about what to do after a gallbladder removal surgery (cholecystectomy). If you’ve had your gallbladder removed or you’re considering having a cholecystectomy, this video is for you.

The gallbladder is an important organ that holds bile salts, concentrates bile (5X more potent), and regulates the release of bile into the digestive system.

When you eat, your gallbladder contracts and releases concentrated bile salts. Without a gallbladder, your bile is diluted and constantly trickles down into the small intestine.

Bile is created in your liver and stored in your gallbladder. When it’s released, it helps break down fat-soluble nutrients, including fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins. This is why vitamin deficiencies can be associated with low bile and gallbladder issues.

The benefits of bile include:

1. Helps with fat-soluble vitamin absorption

2. Helps break down essential fatty acids

3. Helps prevent gallstones

4. Converts T4 to T3

5. Supports healthy blood sugar levels

6. Helps break down fat-soluble phytonutrients

7. Helps rid excess cholesterol

8. Helps eliminate toxins

9. Has an antipathogenic factor

10. Helps balance acidity by increasing alkalinity

Symptoms of a gallbladder problem:

1. Bloating

2. Burping/belching

3. Nausea

4. Right shoulder pain

5. Tightness underneath rib cage

6. Constipation

7. Gallstones and bile sludge

8. Cravings for fatty foods

9. Itchiness

10. High cholesterol

Potential cholecystectomy risks include:

• Injury to the bile ducts

• Bile leaks

• Injury to blood vessels

• Jaundice

• Infection

• Hernia

• Pancreatitis

• Injury to bowels or liver

• Blood clots

• Heart attack

How to support your gallbladder and bile level:
