How long does gallstone surgery take if I have them
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 5 months ago.

The other expert has opted out.

Gallstone surgery usually takes an hour or two.

I will note that while acid reflux will more often cause a burning pain in the chest, it can also cause sharp or dull pain in the center of the chest.

I had a pain like someone was squeezing in middle my chest it lasted maybe an hour then just went away then I was sick little nauses for about 3 days and my urine was bright yellow or light brown do what do you think
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 5 months ago.

The chest pain is more likely to be either reflux or musculoskeletal chest pain, although it is possible that gallbladder disease could cause chest pain. The other symptoms, though, are much more common with gallbladder or liver disease.

The usual next test would be a liver and gallbladder ultrasound.
