    Everyone is different but if it was a laproscopic gallbladder surgery I'd be surprised if you still had pain that needed prescription grade pain meds 2 weeks after surgery. You could try not taking them and replacing with regular paracetamol if needed. And if pain is an issue check with your doctor.

    Best Wishes

    If they help you should take them till you are another week or so along or till you don't need them.
