Gallstones & Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy - Post-surgery care

After you wake up from anaesthesia, you will be observed for a few hours. You will be allowed to drink fluids or have a light meal. On the day following surgery, you should be able to resume your usual diet and move around.
Depending how you feel, you may be discharged the day after surgery. Day surgery patients may be discharged on the same day. Rest at home for 1 – 2 weeks and avoid fatty food immediately and lifting heavy loads after surgery. You will be given a follow-up appointment with your surgeon in about 1-2 weeks.

Pain Management
Recovery after laparoscopic surgery is faster and less painful as compared to open surgery. Oral pain medication will be prescribed and no removal of stitches is required.
