Good evening all, or morning depending on where you are. I had emergency laparoscopic surgery to remove my gallbladder back on March 6th and it was a success. I had a follow up with my surgeon 2 weeks after my surgery and he wanted me to wait 3 weeks after my surgery before I lifted weights again. I have reached my 3 week mark and am looking to get back into lifting so I started doing some body squats and was definitely feeling soreness in my abdomen. Has anyone had gallblader surgery? and if so how long did your soreness typically last? I was planning on doing some upper body movements with just the bar tomorrow to get back in the swing of things. Any advice would be great. Prior to the surgery I was in week 8 of my 12 week strong lifts program. I would love to start where I left off but I am not sure how my body would react to heavy lifts right off the bat.
