Persisting pain is seen in 20%-30% of patients after cholecystectomy for symptomatic gallbladder stones. The only preoperative factor that seems predictive is psychic vulnerability or neuroticism. Findings with regard to the influence of psychologic factors on recovery are contradictory, too. The aim of the present study was to examine a possible relationship between neuroticism and recovery and the outcome of operation.
