    I had my gallbladder removed whilst I was pregnant, the recovery was a bit longer due to being pregnant but you do need a good week or 2 to recover and not lift anything heavy. Best of luck with your surgery and recovery!!

    I had mind taken out last week. It was emergency surgery so I wasn't prepared at all. I came home the day after. It's now 4 days later and I'm still quite sore but that may be because I picked up my 14kg daughter when I'm not meant to lift over 5kgs, oops! I am able to so most things, went to the shops the day agter and have done light cleaning but I definitely feel if I overdo it!

    I had mine taken out 18 months ago, I was a nervous wreck and was googling everything in a hope that I could somehow avoid the op.. but after having 5 attacks in 6 months I knew I never wanted to experience that pain again. Surgery was quick and was home that evening. I found it uncomfortable to sleep but pain meds were great. It took a good 10 days for me to get back to work. Wishing you all the best!

    I would give yourself 2 weeks to rest afterwards... but it's not like you'll be in agony all that time, just a bit uncomfortable, maybe a little slower moving due to discomfort, etc.
    I've now lost 42kg thanks to my gastric sleeve surgery!
