TTC after surgery

I was wondering if anybody could tell me how long after having keyhole gallbladder removal i can start trying to conceive number 2? Obviously i need to wait until im feeling 100% better but is there a time limit for my body to need to recover? I asked a nurse while i was at the hospital and she said she would think around a month but wasnt sure, then another friend of mine who was a nurse said 6 months? I really dont want to pay to go to the doctors to ask one simple question so i was wondering if anyone on here could help me out, if i called my surgeon would he be able to tell me or am i better off just going to my GP to be safe?

Re: TTC after surgery

WEll, a friend ofmine had hers out and then had a baby about a year later. So , I guess 2-3 months. You do want to be sure you are healed inside and are on a normal diet. You have to be fat free for a while after the surgery so I would think 2-3 months would be adequate.
