Since the procedure is considered safe, the survivability of gallbladder surgery is high for most patients. The recovery time is quick, compared to other open procedures. Patients who undergo laparoscopic gallbladder surgery usually recover faster than patients with open gallbladder surgery.
Depending on the specific condition, further treatment may be necessary. Often times patients with gallbladder cancer may also undergo radiation therapy or chemotherapy to treat the cancer.
Ask your doctor what to expect from your specific condition to stay informed about your health care decisions.
