Several possiblities: Your gallbladder is located under your liver. They share a common space that can measure up to 10 x 5 cm. It is not uncommon for bleeding in this common space or its edges. Usually your surgeon will make intra-operative maneuvers to control any bleeding before ending the operation. Okay to ask your surgeon for details of your case. If your recovery is on tract, it may be a normal variant.
