In brief: See below

This is a discussion best saved for your cholecystectomy surgeon.
The anesthetic risk will be minimal even if you have the two procedure close together. The concern will be with your surgical site from the abdominal surgery.

In brief: Not long if elective

If your gallbladder was removed on an elective basis you should be ready for surgery once you prove you are feeling better and can eat and drink.

In brief: Anesthesia is not

Anesthesia is not the issue.
You should wait several weeks to make sure there is no infection.
