More than likely you are responding the air they had to use to visualize your gallbladder and that gets resorbed in time, and you should be feeling better daily. If not, call your surgeon and ask her/him what gives? They will help you out too. ...Read more
My 81 yr old father 3 days post op for perforated bowel from colonoscopy, has not had BP meds since, BP is 174/64. Is this acceptable?

This would make it hard to pass the scope. If there are normal bowel movements one can leave the situation alone or dilate the area. Otherwise the interspaced island of existing scar may need adjacent skin rotated in. ...Read more
