Brownish Orange stool after Gall Bladder Surgery
I had my gall bladder removed due to a massive amount of stones. I had it removed 11 days ago. Now, I am experiencing  brownish orange color stools. Is this normal? Sometimes the stools are a normal brown sometimes/days it would be more of an orange color.
I go in for my post op appointment next week and will be asking than. Since it is an unusual color it is kind of bothering me now and would like to know if this kind of thing is to be expected after gall bladder removal. Thanks!

I had my gallbladder removed in February and I too had brownish orange colored stools.  My doctor told me I could expect this or green watery stools.  

You can always ask your doctor...but my doc told me it was normal.
