Depends: I am not sure if you mean laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder) surgery or not. One to two weeks off work for laparoscopic surgery maybe appropriate, depending on what your work entails, and how vigorous your work is. Check with your surgeon for your own personal individual condition.
