Can a patient snore during gallbladder surgery?

No: The breathing tube placed during surgery bypasses the area where snoring would occur.
Dr. Terry Simpson
General Surgery 35 years experience
No: You will, generally, be intubated during surgery and they will remove the breathing tube after surgery - then you will snore. But if you have a breathing tube in you won't snore.
