A small amount of pain post surgery is normal also a small amount of fluid in the gallbladder area post surgery is a normal sequalae of surgery and usually this fluid gets absorbed over time. If your pain persists or increases and also if the fluid persists or increases in volume then is of concern and needs to be looked into.
Take care
