Normal: Post op day one there is always fluid where the gallbladder used to live, liver and or pancreas. Assuming you had an MRI post op day to look for stones, but this cannot say anything about the neck of the pancreas. If the stones were there they should be seen inside the common bile duct or pancreatic duct, but the fluid post op day one is inconclusive.
