In brief: Too Early to Tell

It is normal and expected to have pain 3 days after gallbladder surgery.
If the pain is out of the ordinary, it is critical to follow-up with your surgeon since our first concern is to look for a post-op complication. Assuming all studies are normal, if the pain persists for weeks after gallbladder surgery, your gastroenterologist will help decide if an ERCP is indicated to look for this rare dx.
