Hi. First time here. My gallbladder was removed 8 days ago using open surgery. I'm just wondering how long it takes for the swelling etc to die down. There is a neat row of staples about 7" long and a small amount of seepage. Alternate staples should be removed on Tuesday. I have a history of scar infections so this time am on antibiotics. I know everyone is different, but just want an average time frame etc.There is very little pain but I can't lie on my right side. My liver function bloods were sky high but seem mostly ok now. Thanks for any input.
