    Pain after gallbladder surgery?

    I had surgery to remove my gallbladder and came home the same day with pain that was controllable. I am now having pain in the upper right side spreading down into my back, and after 22 days, I am still out of work. I thought the average time for recovery was two weeks, but my doctor says it will take time to heal and not to worry -- just to give it time. Has anyone been through this? Is there anything that relieves the pain? It feels like something is pushing up too high under my rib cage and I can't stretch enough to relieve the pain.
