Only gallbladder removal can cause diarrhea. You have acute diarrhea. The most common cause is infection. A stool analysis may be done for confirmation. Meanwhile you can take probiotics, zinc supplements and yogurt for faster relief. Drink enough fluids and electrolyte solution to remain well hydrated. Let me know if I can assist you further.
