Told gallbladder should come out due to 95% from hidea scan? What does that mean & can it cause dizziness ?

Told gallbladder should come out due to 95% from hidea scan? What does that mean & can it cause dizziness ?

Dehydration can cause dizziness because your blood pressure is lower when dehydrated. See GI doctor very soon--she may wind up sending you to a surgeon to have your gallbladder removed ...Read more

Had gallbladder removed Monday and have a red rash that's under my right breast causing itching and pain. Dizziness and fatigue also. Period also heav?

Rash can represent an allergic reaction to any medication, to tape if tape was applied etc if around incisions then an infection needs to be ruled out. Dizziness and fatigue can represent dehydration , medication side effect or even may point to a bigger problem like leak etc. plz reach out to your surgeon/ hospital sooner ...Read more
