Cholecystectomy surgery is fairly simple, as most patients can go home within 24 hours of having had surgery. There should there be no complications. Patients should be back to doing everyday activities after a week of surgery. Your incisions during this time period require very little care but make sure you are cleaning them with soap and water to prevent accumulation of any bacteria. Sometimes doctors will recommend a high-fiber diet, with a low intake of fat. If any redness or swelling occurs in the area, make sure you set up an appointment with your doctor.
