Does having laporoscopic cholecystectomy surgery create scars?

Yes

Scarring
Small ones; all surgical procedures that involve cutting or puncturing of the skin result in scars. The appearance of the scar depends on many factors. Most heal 'well'

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. 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.

My bladder doesn't work after surgery, I have to go home with a catheter. Is there anyway to prevent this? I'm getting a cholecystectomy.

NO

Bladder
You likely have urinary retention from the opiods that you take for pain control.

Dr. John J. Fung answered:

Before I have cholecystectomy, do I have to ask my surgeon to do intra-operative cholangiography, or is this standard procedure during surgery?

Yes, ask

Cholangiogram
There is still substantial debate whether intraoperative cholangiography (IOC) should be routine or selective. There are clear indications for IOC, such as having elevated bilirubin and common bile duct stone on ultrasound - while having a history of gallstone pancreatitis is a relative indication. If a stone is seen on IOC, some surgeons are facile in removing them, otherwise endoscopic removal

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

is it common to get hernia after cholecystectomy?how to find out if u got it?how to avoid getting one? How much weight one can lift after the surgery?

Hernia where?

Hernias
It is uncommon to get a trochar site hernia after laparoscopic gallbladder surgery . It can depend on how your surgery was done, as some reports of single site umbilical port only surgery can have a slightly higher rate of umbilical hernia formation. Usually patients are directed not to lift over about 20 pounds after surgery, but need to see your surgeon for your specific situation & examination

I am having cholecystectomy on Monday (4-21-14). I am having septoplasty/turbinate reduction Friday (4-25-14). Is it ok to have 2nd surgery so soon?

You have to

Surgery
check with both surgeons , 4 days after cholecystectomy to under go nasal surgery is not a good idea, wait for few wks , when you fully recovered from first surgery go for the next , most likely both surgeons will advise the same

Ulcer

It is likely that you have a recurrent ulcer or gastritis . Please get a referral to a gastroenterologist to take your medical history and examine you and make a diagnosis so they can treat you
