    HiĀ 

    it's difficult to say as pain is relative.. If you had a stone left in your bile duct I think you would be in agony ...vomiting etc..

    you must remember you have internal stitches your gallbladder has been removed and you are healing . It takes 6 weeks to heal internally your abdominal muscles will take about 3 months to gain their strength again..

    try not to use your abdominal muscles for 6 weeks ..I was told not to drive but I swept the floor a week after my op and had pains and aches and felt rough for a few days. So try not to worry. Be careful . And if you get agony ring an ambulance ...

    Yes..............could be some residual grip in duct area which I understand is not unusual and which can resolve itself. You need to revisit your surgeon for consultation.

    I was told by the surgeon that I may still have pain like I did before the op. Give it a few more days and if it persists consult your doctor.
