Gallbladder Surgery in Gab/Chat Room Posted October 25, 2008 · Report to Admin I know that a lot of you have had your gallbladders removed so I need some advice. I had my gallbladder out last friday and I still feel lousy. My belly is very bloated, I look pregnant and I have a lump next to my belly button that hurts. My family is telling me it's not normal and there is something wrong but the doc said I would need about 2 weeks to feel better. I have to see him next week for my follow up but I don't know if I should get in sooner.
