    USNA69,

    Gall bladder surgery on its own, as long as it was greater than 6 months ago is not a disqualification. If the symptoms leading up to the surgery were severe, or the applicant is still having symptoms then it could possibly be a disqualification, but in my experience, once the offending organ has been removed there are no other problems.
