Re: how long to heal completely from gallbladder removal

All depends on what you mean by "heal." The incisions are healed enough in 2 weeks to have any sutures/staples removed. As for digestive issues, it all depends on how long you stay off foods with fat in them. Since I went fat free for about a month after and slowly worked it back in, I think it was about 3 months before I could eat anything I wanted, allbruising gone, incisions looking pretty faint, etc.

As for healed enough to do certain things, I jogged 2 miles at one week, was back int he gym at 3 weeks.

Hope this helps.
