If you’ve had your gallbladder removed there are some very important post op things for you to know. Probably the most important thing to know is that you should very likely talk to your licensed healthcare professional about supplementing with a bile supplement to help you emulsify dietary fats and to help neutralize stomach acid AFTER that stomach acid has a chance to do its job breaking down food in your stomach.
