Probably yes: Almost all of the gas in the abdomen disappears within 24 hours of the surgery. If your abdomen remains tight and distended (enlarged) I might wait a few days until it resumes a more normal size. A week out from surgery there will not be a problem. Only concern is that you might be flying somewhere remote where there isn't adequate medical care if a problem develops. ...Read more
I had gallbladder surgery on 3 20 12. Why do I still get tired and have slight pain in my stomach?
Yes: Yes, but it depends on what type of hernia in terms of location and severity. A groin hernia or complex hernia would probably not be best to do at the same time. A relatively straightforward umbilical or incisional hernia can be done at the same time, but it also depends on the condition of the gallbladder.

Is it normal to feel completely exhausted 4 days after larascopic gallbladder surgery? I feel fine other than all I want to do is sleep.
Not usual: Some people have a "hangover" after general anesthesia but it should be winding down by now. If you're still taking narcotics that could make you sleepy. If your heart is racing and you're woozy when you're up I suggest you get yourself checked in an ER or urgent care. If that's not the case, I'd still call your surgeon and discuss with her or the staff. Good luck. ...Read more

Hopefully you'll get answers soon. GL. ...Read more
