Hello

There is no relation in between gall bladder removal and urinary incontinence.
Your symptoms may be due to some other reasons like enlarged prostate,urinary tract infection.

You need clinical correlation and investigations like routine hemogram,renal function test,Urine culture and sensitivity and Ultrasound of abdomen.

Ultrasound can exclude many possibilities.
Treatment depend upon findings.

Get well soon.
Take Care
