Your . Your boyfriend needs to have a follow up with the surgeon who performed the surgery. Typically by one week after such a surgery normal food can be tolerated. The fact that he has lost so much weight and is unable to tolerate food is worrisome. He may be dealing with a serious post-operative complication (adhesions, bowel obstruction, hernia etc.) his surgeon will hopefully get to the bottom of this. He may need an abdominal ultrasound or ct scan. I hope he is better soon.
Should get better. If the gallbladder was the problem and it has been removed , a patient will generally get better within a week of surgery. Appetite should return and after- meal pain should be gone. If this is NOT the case , a patient should be quickly reevaluated for a different cause of gastrointestinal problems. This can sometimes happen in people after gallbladder surgery and why close followup is crucial.
