I've had lighter-colored stools since my bypass on 6/29. When I had pancreatitis from gall stones, stools were clay-colored and I felt very sick. If you don't feel pain in the upper right under and just below your ribs, it's probably not your gall bladder. Your doctor can check your lipase and amylase levels too.

Mine was like that right before my gallbladder failed. Should bring it up with your surgeon or doctor, just to be safe. ❤️

Mine was almost yellow for quite a while after my surgery, and there were no issues as far as I'm aware. It did get back to normal eventually.

I had weird colored poop for the first three or four weeks post-surgery, but after that - no. I'd just check with your doctor or surgeon. If nothing else, for peace of mind.

I had my gallbladder out a few years ago so I can rule that out.I have been eating alot of beige foods....cottage cheese every day,babybel,yoghurt...the only green I've been having is a bit of lettuce so am thinking these may be a contributing factor...I have no pain etc..

I had that right after my bypass too. Actually, I had some bowel movements that were completely white! Very strange looking. My surgeon said it was because things were moving through my bowel so quickly no bile was mixing in to give it color and that it wouldn't last long. He was right.

No, it means your gall bladder struggles, in most cases. However you had it out, so probably lack of fats, and dietary changes

I don't have a gallbladder

Definitely check on liver or atleast let your primary care physician know. Also yellow poop can be a lactose intolerance you can develop food intolerances after these procedures but for some its only temporary. Your physician can decide if he wants to run a liver panel just to be safe because only he knows all your comorbities we do not

Everything is fine thanks everybody, I spoke to my dietician and told her my food diary & she assured me it was down to my diet as I felt well and pain free,and,sure enough the next day my bowel movements were back to normal 😁
