What to Expect
A laparoscopic gallbladder surgery normally requires two hour’s general anesthesia. After the required level of anesthesia is met, the surgeon will inflate your stomach with carbon dioxide or air to make the operation sight clearer and easier to work on.
A scope that is lighted on a video camera is passed into the abdomen through one of the small incision to display the operation site clearly on a monitor. The tiny surgical instruments needed for removing the gallstone will be inserted through the other incisions.
After the laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, you may be required to stay in the hospital for a day or two. It may take longer, but you can always be sure that you will recover much faster than someone who has an open surgery to remove gallstones.
