Is depression common among people without gallbladder?

I was wondering if depression is common among people without a gallbladder since they are not absorbing fat the same way they would with more concentrated bile . I know that the myelin sheath that surrounds our nerves is made of fat and it regulates our nervous system and brains functioning. In any case I think I m a different man then I was, it s been 3 years since I had it removed.

Hi there ~

There are no examples online, in the form of case reviews or studies, when I checked online that related depression to removal of the gall bladder. However, your case may be unique and may need to be looked into in greater detail by a psychiatrist. I would think that the depression may be due to other circumstances that may have happened after surgery or could be primary or endogenous. In any case consulting a doctor would be appropriate. I hope this helped.

Take care and have a good day.
