Dehydration: Sounds like you may be dehydrated, even though you're trying to keep up with fluid losses. If your urine is not a vet light yellow, you are dehydrated, and if you cannot hydrate enough, you may need to go to an ER. 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

Call the surgeon: One should be feeling relatively well 4 days after lap chole. 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
