    I never had high cholesterol until I had my gall bladder removed.  I eat very healthy and do not eat foods that contain cholesterol.  My cholesterol tests were always in a healthy range.  My MD/DO says that if your live does not produce enough bile, having your gall bladder removed will also remove the storehouse of bile that the gall bladder contains.  Therefore, yes, having your gall bladder removed can elevate your cholesterol if your liver does not produce enough bile on it's on.  Ask your doctor to to do a liver test to see if there is any underlying reasons for the low production of bile.
