I had my gallbladder out, in the years my hep C was quite active. I kept the stones, they look like pearls!
Attacks were quite gaspingly painful, I would curl up on my knees, crushing chest pain. They took it out, never happened again, and I have had very few digestive problems since, sadly, if it was hard to digest some of those foods I'd be better at avoiding them.
But you will never get that kind of attack again once it is out. All the best. Op isn't bad.
