    44625 or 44626 if the original surgery was a hartman if he did an anastomosis, the scope was done to check the anastomosis most likely so not billable, the mobilization also is part of this takedown. 49560 & 49568 for your ventral hernia repair & 47600 for open chole, depending on your insurance it might require a 51 for multiple procedures. Best guess without seeing the note.
