Can GB disfunction cause weight loss?

I recently have lost about 45 pounds. Mostly I just never feel like eating. When this first started about 4-5 months ago I had a HIDA scan wich was borderline EF of 36%. My doctor felt that was inconclusive and went on to do a full work up looking for a cause. I had it all CT Scan, Colonoscopy, EGD, gastric emptying,  bloodwork all normal, but I continued to lose weight. Now after about 5 months of this I do seem to have more specific GB symptoms. Some slight nausea and mostly back pain on the right. I suppose I will need to have my GB removed but I wonder did the weight loss cause the gallbladder problem or is the gallbladder responsible for the weight loss? Is it possible for the only symptom of gallbladder disfunction to be not wanting to eat anything?
