Suggest treatment for gallstones

I have been diagnosed with gallstones and need to have my gallbladder removed. Until this happens I need to go back to work, which involves working with heavy patients as my field is Physiotherapy. Would I be able to carry on or do I need to have light duties?

Many thanks

Hello,

Post surgery it is advised for light work for at least 1 week. Sometimes this period may get prolonged also.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
