I just got told today that I have gallstones (more than likely caused by stuff I did before I moved out of my parent's house as I have been having pain episodes since I moved out of there) and that I should have my gallbladder removed as a preventitive measure just in case a stone gets lodged in the bile duct. I am hoping that it can be done laproscopically (outpatient basis) and since I don't have any external scarring in the area that the work needs to be done in, it shouldn't be a problem. I know that standard gallbladder surgery (non-laproscopically) takes between 4 to 6 weeks to heal fully. Anyone here have experience with this procedure and how long I would be out of the gym for? I try and go as often as possible, I was up to doing weights 5x a week and cardio an additional 2-3x (sometimes working out twice in one day), but then I got sick or fairly busy with school-work and haven't been able to go for a while. Can someone provide me with some guidance?
