How long ago: Was your surgery? Was it laparoscopic? You can expect to have incisional pain while healing up from surgery. When this is over, you should feel better. Some patients get colicky pain for a few weeks until your system gets accustomed to absence of storage organ. Ask your surgeon what to expect at what point in time after surgery. Persistent pain, fever, vomiting, or jaundice are danger signs.

Depends: A simple gall bladder surgery done via laparoscopy does not take long - averages 30 minutes in my hospital. However, that only accounts for the surgeon's time. I'll caution you that the time spent in surgery does not correlate to quality and it's more important for you to know about your surgeon's complication rate rather than his/her speed.

Differential DX is..: ...The process we go thru to narrow down the cause of a problem. In this case, we need to know when the pain was occurring relative to the surgery and the type of pain. If the pain mimics a gallbladder attack, it may be due to a stone in the bile duct. Mild pain early-on is likely incisional pain. Severe pain, esp associated with fever may indicate a complication. Best bet: see your surgeon.

Healthy: Though many patients don't have much problem with their usual diet after gb surgery, many found themselves intolerant of certain foods (fried, rich food...), with varying symptoms (bloating, loose bm, flatulence...). Take the opportunity to adopt a more healthy dietary selection.
