Question: 

I am wondering if you would know or if there is someone else to talk to about ileostomy and gall bladders. If one has had the ileostomy surgery does it have any effect on the working of the gall bladder?  If you have the gall bladder removed does it cause any issues with your ileostomy?

Response:

Having an ileostomy does increase the risk of kidney stones and gall stones. Having your gall bladder out does not affect the ileostomy in any way.

The link below is an abstract of the article that says there is a higher risk of getting gallbladder disease.
