How long after laparoscopy gallbladder surgery can I fly?

3-5 daya. If things go well during surgery and you are felling ok, there are no real issues about flying. I would ask your doctor first, however, if he / she is ok with it.
Passenger? pilot? I have had patients (mostly students) who fly home to family the same day or the next day after surgery. I generally tell my patients who pilot planes to "stay grounded" until they don't need pain medications to be comfortable. You most certainly cannot fly if you are on narcotics prescribed after surgery.

Sometimes staples or stitches are kept in longer depending on the location . Read more...
