Very common. If you still have a gall bladder when you have the surgery, usually the doctors will prescribe a medication to prevent the gall bladder problems. Most people have to take the medication for about 6 months. I had already had my gall bladder removed years ago and didn't have any issues. Good luck with your surgery.
