Hey Jessica! I had my gb out on 2/27 (emergency surgury on a Sunday). It was an open surgery (4 hours - had stone in my common bile duct). Feeling great - only missed 2 weeks work and took no pain meds after day 3 (not even an advil). Enjoying all the bad foods that caused me "acid reflux" for the last several years.
It's not as scary as some carnival rides! Good luck
