Why Do I Have Nausea After Gallbladder Surgery
The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct. The gallbladder can store bile when the bile is not needed, and can squeeze bile into the bile duct and intestine for digestion when a person eats larger ...Read more
Its one week since I had my gallbladder surgery. I am still experiencing nausea, vomitting and am unable to keep food down. Shudn't it all have passed by now?
Depends on the etiol: If you have dificulty in swallowing, talking and hoarsenss, and these symptoms were not there before your surgery, you need to get in touch with your surgeon immediately. If they were there before then you need a detailed evaluatin of your throat. Postop nausea is not uncommon after general anesthesia, however, if the symptoms are not going away you need further workup. ...Read more

WELL TOLERATED: Gallbladder surgery is almost always done laparoscopically, and is usually as an outpatient. General anesthesia is required. There will be 3-4 small puncture wounds. Some sites may offer a single, slightly larger, site approach. Regardless, you should be back to full activity in 5-10 days. Some post-op soreness. Once you are fully awake there's no dietary restrictions. Good luck. ...Read more
Usually, good..: Since 1990 I have performed over 4000 laparoscopic cholecystectomies, as well as another 100+ open cholecystectomies. The vast majority of our patients are outpatient, going home about 2 hrs after surgery. Most are back to "normal" within a week, with no dietary restrictions. Of course, unfortunately, some have had some complications, which we are prepared to manage. I hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read more
Take a deep breath: First of all, take a deep breath. Things will most likely be fine. The night before the operation, stop taking food and drink by mouth as directed by your doctor. Try to avoid fatty foods leading up to the operation as this may aggravate your gallbladder disease. Make arrangements to be out of work for at least one week. Then try to relax. ...Read more

Depends: Immediately after surgery I find patients who eat greasy or fatty food have a lot of abdominal pain and cramping with diarrhea and urgent trips to the bathroom. It takes a while for the body to get used to not having a large input of bile with each meal to help digest the fat. While almost everyone goes back to eating a normal diet. I recommend my patients avoid high fat foods for the first 4 wk. ...Read more
Well tolerated.: Usually this is done laparoscopically, with one incision at the belly button and 2-3 upper abdominal incisions. These are usually less than an inch in size. This is most often an outpatient procedure, home the same day. Incisions will be sore for a week or so, and you will be limited to light activity for a month or so. ...Read more
Not eating of course will make anyone become in malnutrition, eventually emaciation to the end of life. I hope this is not what you meant. But, our body takes time to adapt living after gallbladder removal. The decades accumulated experience has told us a commonsensical dietary modification will do the trick. So, ask surgeon for detail and get going.

Relax: Gb surgery is extremely common and very safe. Most patients go home the same day and do extremely well. You will naturally have pain the first few days but you will have medication for that and it will rapidly improve over the first week. Four weeks after the surgery you will most likely be pain free and back to your old activities. Feel better soon. ...Read more
Common: You have had anesthesia and surgery. You are healing and likely having discomfort. It is very common and quite normal to tire easily and not have much of an appetite early after an operation. This resolves over several days to a few weeks. Eat healthy and try to do a little bit more activity each day. ...Read more
Depends on surgery: In all cases the scar is not that bad. Usually the gallbladder is removed with a camera and othe small long instruments placed in the abdomen through 3 1-2cm incisions, but it sometimes is done through one larger 6 inch incision below the right rib. It some specialized centers it can be done through the vaginia or mouth/stomach resulting in no external scars. ...Read more
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
Depends on how: Much of elevation and how soon after surgery. If it is sudden elevation shortly after surgery, it could mean something bad, like retained stone, obstruction of common duct, liver damage, etc. Conversely, if is is a slight elevation years after surgery, then it is probably not even related. ...Read more
