On the 5th of January I had my Galbladder removed at UCT Private Academic Hospital. It is now almost a month later and I still have pain and discomfort. I am on pain medication four times a day. Is this normal?

Needs workup: A month is a long time. You may be having pain related to the operation or the wound. If the procedure was done via laparoscopy then it is almost certainly related to the operation itself. If an open procedure then the wound could be suspect. CT scan or preferably MRI to look for Internal fluid collection along with lab studies should provide answers. Be brave and cautious.

Hi! I got my four wisdom teeth removed four days ago and I was put on some new medications for the pain and swelling. Today I noticed a yellow bruising on my lower jaw and was wondering if this is normal or what could have caused this. Thank you!

Hi! I got my four wisdom teeth removed four days ago and I was put on some new medications for the pain and swelling. Today I noticed a yellow bruising on my lower jaw and was wondering if this is normal or what could have caused this. Thank you!

For some patients, the simple retraction of the cheek to provide access to the last teeth in the upper and lower jaws is enough to produce bruising. Also, bleeding during surgery can show up later as bruises. ...Read more
