Does having sexual intercourse irritate your gallbladder if you have gallstones?

I am having surgery for gallstones in approximately a month & am wondering if having sex will irritate the gallbladder or put me in more pain?

It shouldn't - I had mine out when I was around 18, and I don't remember physical activity bothering it all that much. You really just have to watch what you are eating - that's what will really come back to bite you in the butt.

Yeah... I made the mistake of eating a really small amount of BBQ, when I was out with my mom a couple weeks before my surgery. I'd been really good up to that point, so thought that a tiny bit wouldn't hurt me. OMG... thought I was going to die. Needless to day, didn't deviate from the standard food list after that.
