Water?: Could be due to generalize water retention after the operation. This will go away as you go through the recovery period. May last 1-3 weeks. This depends of course when you had your surgery. If you're concerned something is wrong, call your surgeon. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Severe pain,swelling and sudden weight gain had ct then mrcp both showed enlarged gallbladder and dilated common bile duct but nonspecific,poss causes?

Need more info: the dilated common bile duct is more concerning and could possibly cause your symptoms. I would more information to be able to discuss further testing.

Could gallbladder disease cause low grade fevers over a couple months? Highest has been 99.7

Unlikely: Acute cholecystitis is an illness that resembles acute appendicitis, which doesn't last 2 months.

I suspect another cause for your subfebrile illness. ...Read more
