No: But not necessarily something to worry about. It could just be some post op issue still resolving. Although less likely, it could be something getting worse (infection, bile duct stone, bile leak) best to see your surgeon and follow up. He/she should be able to rule this out with some questions, an exam and possibly some images. Post op visits are free!
