Hello board members, I am a new poster, very glad to be here.
I recently had Gallbladder removal laproscopically on October 26th 2012. I was diagnosed via a cat scan, due to some tightness I felt in the back area about 2 months ago.
At the time of my operation, I had no abdominal or pain from my gallbladder. It was not inflamed or infected. I had never had an attack. But once the stones were found via a CAT scan, I immediately opted for surgery.
I view myself to be in very good shape, as I'm very athletic. I'm also a choir director, and an avid weekly bowler.
It has been 13 days since my surgery. I have had no pain, no diarrhea, no vomiting, I've held down all my foods and have no pain whatsoever in my abdomen.
On Sunday, I directed my choir for 2 hrs, with no pain or cramping as a result.
My question is should I bowl on tomorrow? The lifting limit is 10-14lbs which is within the limit of the ball I throw. I feel absolutely great, but summons some outside opinions.
Hmmm...I jogged 2 miles a week after having mine out but didn't work out or lift for 3 weeks. If you are bowling in a league, I'd get a sub. If just going to fun, you could try a few balls and see how it goes.

I wouldn't, just to err on the conservative side. My surgeon said for the first 2 weeks, no lifting anything (jug of milk would be too much). After that, he said no HEAVY lifting for 4-6 wks.
I found that even when my pain was pretty much gone a few weeks after my surgery, lifting even a moderate amount, or twisting in a weird way, would cause some twinges of pain. Probably nothing, but why risk it.
