I had my gallbladder removed about 2years ago.I dont know whats its called in english the way they did it.They filled my stomache with gad,they really blow you up and then by me they made four small cuts and removed the gallbladder.After that i had some pain in my chest because of that gas they pump you up with.At the hospital i got a plastic thing to blow in to check if the lungs are ok and to practise breathing(dont worry you can breath afterwards they just want to check that everything is in pkace again). Then they told me not to lift any heavy thing for 6weeks and gave me painkillers. I was in hospital from monday(op) and left on thursday. If you have any questions you can talk to your doctor,they can tell you how the operation will be and where they will cut.I wish you good luck and that the operation goes well,if you have been having gall colics and you know the pain they create you can really look at this operation as a blessing!
