The major criterion for gallbladder removal is if ejection rate is below 30 percent and that is obviously the case here. Basically, that means that bile is collecting inside gallbladder instead of it being forwarded further to aid digestion and most common cause for this to happen is because of the gallstones. But your doctor probably checked for those? If I was in your place, I'd get a second opinion - there is something obviously wrong and you not secreting enough bile will cause you even more problems with digestion - you can't digest proteins and fats without it.
