If you have had your gall bladder removed, can you tell me what happens after the surgery?

See below. Usually no symptoms or problems. Most all people can return to eating a normal diet, the bile still passes from the liver through the bile duct into the intestine for digestion. About 1 in 400 get diarrhea after this surgery, and is usually temporary.
Very few problems. Short term (2 weeks): pain from recovery from surgery. Long-term (more than 2 weeks): 1 in 10 people will notice if they eat fatty foods (especially restaurant foods --usually >50% fat), they will need to urgently moved their bowels with loose stool within 20 minutes. Not everyone experiences this, and those that do often find that it improves as the body adapts to the lack of the gallbladder.

I had gall bladder surgery 2 weeks ago, I want to know what the recovery is before I can play racquet ball. How long before a person can play a vigorous active, such as, raquet ball after having your gall bladder removed.

While . While the general rule of thumb is 6 weeks, it can be shorter if it was done laparoscopically, if you are in otherwise good health and was relatively active before - it so, even as short as 2 weeks is possible. However if you are on other medications, such as corticosteroids, that may interfere with wound healing, it may take longer. In addition, if there is any redness or drainage from the wound, if you have other medical problems, such as diabetes, you have kidney or liver disease, history of poor healing, then you will also need longer period of time. As with any recovery after surgery, you need to resume activity in a graded manner, starting off lightly and increasing as you tolerate. Read more...

I recently had my gall bladder removed. One week later a kidney stone was detected. Could this develope from surgery or was the stone there for a long time? Pain is same before gall bladder was removed.

Unrelated. Kidney stone and gallstones would entirely be unrelated, and the kidney stone would not be related to your surgery. You may still be healing and having surgical discomfort from the gallbladder surgery and the kidney stone may just be present. If the kidney stone is entering or blocking the ureter, then the kidney stone may cause pain. Read more...

I had surgery to have my gall bladder removed because I was having severe stomach aches the aches didn't leave they are now 10 times worse...Why?

Painless gallstones. I assume that your ultrasound showed gall stones without evidence of imflammation of your gall bladder. Sometimes, gall stones cause no symptoms. Removal of your gallbladder did not treat the root cause of your pain. You may more than one cause of pain too. Have you seen a gastroenterologist? If so, get a follow-up appointment or get a second opinion. Read more...
Different things. It is possible that the pain was due to something else. I am sure that there was a good indication for cholecystectomy, but it may be that the cause of the pain was unrelated to your gallstones. I would have another talk with the surgeon and see if you guys coukd work together to ferret out the cause of the pain. Read more...
