How long does it take to recover from laparoscopic gallbladder surgery with liver biopsy?

After laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, you will likely go home from the hospital the same day. You may experience mild to moderate pain in the belly and shoulders for up to 48 hours on average. You should be back to your regular activity within two weeks, sometimes as early as 3-5 days after surgery. You may experience intermittent and mild abdominal discomfort or low energy levels for up to 6 weeks after the procedure. Your surgeon will guide you on what activities can be undertaken and in what time frame based on your specific response to the surgery.
