Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. Pale stool indicates obstruction to the bile flow. This can be confirmed with a liver function test and an ultrasound scan of the abdomen. Since it happened after gallbladder surgery, damage to the bile duct is the likely cause. Intake of omegas and flax seed is not responsible for your symptoms. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
