Brief Answer:
Post cholecystectomy syndrome

Detailed Answer:

Your wife seems to be suffering from the typical features complained by a person whose gall bladder was removed. There would be no bile salts to emulsify the salts. Bile salts are like detergents used to clean greasy pans. If there is no bile salt the dishes are left greasy. So the gut of the person without gall bladder will not be able to digest fat, and thereby the fat can reduce the absorption of protein and carbohydrate. The stool is XXXXXXX colored, bulky with non forming stools.

Small and frequent non fatty meal is the best thing now. She can be supplemented with external bile salts.

The other reason could be infectious gastritis, the reason for headache and vomiting.

I suggest to XXXXXXX the primary doctor for an evaluation and supplements.
