Doctor :   Gall bladder is the organ which stores the gall juices which contains enzymes for digestion.
User :   ok...
Doctor :   So, whenever a person has a fatty meal the gall bladder secretes the juice required for digestion.
Doctor :   As you got gall bladder removed, so there is no organ to store the juice of enzymes.
Doctor :   These enzymes are produced by the liver.
Doctor :   SO, it will continually flow.
User :   ok..
Doctor :   and the food usually the fatty food doesn't get digested completely.
Doctor :   So, the main diet restriction here would be to avoid fatty and oily food.
Doctor :   Drink lots of water and green leafy vegetables.
User :   since the flow of bile is from the liver...will not completely digest the fatty food is it?
Doctor :   It would digest the food but not completely.
User : that case waht would be the disadvantage? if food is not completelt digest..what would happen?
Doctor :   Have more green leafy vegetables as this contain high fibre and helps in absorption of the water and motility of the gut and the time required for digestion.
