Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Is it normal to have gas trouble and tiredness after laparoscopic cholecystectomy ? Surgery was 4 days back.

Yes.

Passing_gas
It may take weeks for your digestive system to adjust to "losing" your gallbladder; your gas trouble is likely a manifestation of this adjustment. As far as the lethargy...you just had general anesthesia, which takes days to get out of your system. Lethargy is normal and expected, as well as afternoon naps. Be sure and follow-up with your surgeon, as recommended.

NO

How long after laparoscopic cholecystectomy should I wait to have oral surgery with anesthesia?

See below

Bleeding
This is a discussion best saved for your cholecystectomy surgeon. The anesthetic risk will be minimal even if you have the two procedure close together. The concern will be with your surgical site from the abdominal surgery.

Dr. Marvin Den answered:

I had surgery 6 days ago (open cholecystectomy) and am healing pretty well, but I am exhausted all of the time now. Is this normal after 6 days?

Post surgery fatigue

Premature
It is really too early to feel 100%.You had major surgery. Everyone recovers at their own pace. As long as you are getting stronger each day, even a bit, would not worry. If not speak to your surgeon

Under what circumstance would lapro cholecystectomy to converted to open cholececystectomy?

Anatomy

Cicatrix
If you can't get there (safely) from here (the belly button), due to excessive scar tissue, odd anatomy, or other factors, then open cholecystectomy is chosen. Sometimes there are factors that can not be determined until the procedure has started, and the surgeon looks inside. Roughly about 10% or less of laparoscopic procedures get converted to open ones.
