Possible complications would be peritonitis, which is a serious infection, internal bleeding, which can also be quite serious, a surgical wound infection or possibly an accidental injury to the common bile duct. Any of these are most definitely going to need the expertise of your surgeon of family practitioner.

With any surgery, post-operative complications can take varying forms. Infection of the affected area is one of the most common side effects, so watch for fever, or lack of healing, redness or drainage at the incision site. Contact the physician for follow-up, since complications can quickly escalate into life-threatening situations.
