Rare: Depends on how the surgery was performed. Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery very rarely leaves any scar tissue. Open gallbladder surgery can cause more scar tissue, but it usually is fairly minor and rarely would cause intestinal blockage or pain. You may need to see a gastroenterologist for evaluation.
