How should I prepare for my at-home recovery?Nate Deisler
You should be able to return to fairly normal activity, including going up and down stairs, after your gallbladder removal surgery. You may also want to adjust your diet for a while, cutting back on high-fat foods that may be more difficult for you to digest. You should be able to return to a normal diet within a few weeks.
Daily walks should help you in your recovery, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for a couple of weeks after surgery. Avoid lifting heavy objects for two to four weeks after surgery.
