Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am

After going through the medical details provided by you I understand your concern for your health and I would like to tell you that as such there is no direct link between gall bladder removal and heart rate or shortness of breath.

However as surgery itself is a stress to whole body including heart due to which in some case these symptoms occurs as a part of complication of any major surgery.

It's advisable that you should get an Ecg and an Echocardiography done and consult a cardiologist personally to rule out any event which might have happened to heart after surgery.

I hope this information will guide you properly.

Kind regards
