What to Expect After Gallbladder Surgery?

Depending on if you are lucky enough to have a Laparoscopic surgery, then you should be back to your normal routine within a few days as compared to an Open gallbladder surgery which could keep you laid up for 4-6 weeks, barring no complications. Hospital time is usually at the most a day with the Laparoscopic but could be 2-4 days with the other. In either cases you will be sore for a few days, lenght depending on the type of surgery. But most of all, follow all of your doctor’s orders and keep an eye out for any signs of infection or fever.
