In brief: Soreness

After laparoscopic gallbladder removal, lap hernia, or open hernia, there will be , of course, some temporary post op pain.
This will be easily managed with ice, antiinflammatory meds, and pain meds. No dietary restriction after gallbladder out. Lifting restriction from 1-3 weeks, per your surgeon. After that, you'll have no activity restrictions, but some residual soreness. Good luck.

In brief: 2-4wks weight rest

Both surgeries are usually done laparoscopically and would rec'd a lifting restriction of no lifting of greater than 20lbs for 2 weeks.
As far as dietary restrictions, your surgeon should place you on a progressive diet advancing from liquids to soft foods as tolerated. Your body will usually tell you what foods it will accept or cause trouble.
