Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Nowadays, all the gall bladder surgeries are laparoscopic surgeries and the stay in the hospital is minimal and thus you’ll get discharged quite quickly.

However, the overnight stay is usually required and recommended. The patients are usually discharged on the 3rd post-operative day. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
