Varies: Each person is different & depends if you are asking about open surgery or laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery may have less pain than an open inguinal or open ventral hernia. Highly variable from one person to another.

Irritation: This sounds like just local irritation of the nerves in the area of the surgery. This should get better with time.
