Cholecystitis, removal this week, life after removal

I've been sick for 3 weeks now with severe symptoms, but have had these problems for about 5 years now. Symptoms: nausea, vomiting, severe dizziness, diareah, passing out, and severe upper quadrant pain. I am also epileptic so my once controlled seizures are now crazy and out of hand. I was diagnosed with Cholecystitis this evening in the ER and will be having surgery this week. I don't know much about life after gall bladder removal and I would love some insight. Can I lose weight, as I have been doing P90X and previously changed my entire diet to lose it? I'm really worried it might hinder my progress. Is the surgery comparable to an appendectomy? Recovery times? I'm sick of being sick so can this really help?! Is there any advice you can give about post removal? I'm reading as many articles as I can, but I would rather here honest to goodness stories and/or advice from people who have experienced it. Thanks in advance and I hope everyone is feeling well!!
