People say you bounce right back after laparoscopic gall bladder removal. Had surgery Wednesday and still hard to get around. Some say you shouldn't be sore. I beg to differ. I am. Can't lay down. Sleep in recliner. Have little energy. Everyone is different. Just because some recover quickly doesn't mean you will. I wished I was one that could say that.

Every individual is different and though laparoscopic procedures are associated with far less morbidity, as compared to open surgeries, the procedure will not be without any pain.

Since a organ has been removed and since tissues have been inflammed / irritated, there will be mild to moderate pain, which can be easily managed by pain killers and anti-inflammatory medications.
