This is for anyone that works in EMS that has had their gall bladder removed.

How long did it take for you to go back to work?

I am on FMLA leave and am a little concerned that I will be released too soon. I know my company wants me back in a hurry and they don't really care if it's too soon, to be honest. What I have read online is that it takes 4-6 weeks before you can do any heavy lifting even with a laparoscopic procedure and I am a week post-op at this point.

Thanks!
