I had my gallbladder removed about two years ago (3 months after DS was born)by keyhole surgery. I had been diagnosed with gallstones and finally booked for surgery through the public heatlh system when I found out I was pregnant and had to postpone. Funnily enough I found the stitches from the gallbladder surgery were worse than the caesarean scar! Go figure! The only problem I have now is when I eat anything really fatty (as the function of the gallbladder is to assist in absorbing the fat in the diet). When I eat fatty stuff (fast food, chips, lasagne etc), I need to be in the vicinity of a toilet, cause the fat seems to just go straight through. My sister-in-law has the same problem since her gallbladder removal (but she also has issues with full cream dairy products too). Sorry if this has been a little too much information, but hopes it helps.
