It should be okay: It's best to check with your surgeon, but Advil should be fine and can help with pain without making you dizzy. It also will not cause constipation like hydrocodone. You can start with 2 pills every 6-8 hours and see if it helps. If you need to, you can take 3 pills every 8 hours. Make sure to take Advil with food. ...Read more

Seven months after may gallbladder surgery I am getting pain where the gallbladder used to be. Can you tell me about it?

Post GB, a surgical bed may not have healed before adhesions developed which could then cause, twisting and partial GI blockage. A CAT scan should reveal if this surgical site is the cause of the symptoms or it is due to another factor. ...Read more

Can gallbladder symptoms subside after recovering from gallbladder surgery?

Usually: Some gallbladder surgery is done for less than clear indications - as a last resort to fixing pains that can't be explained. These kinds of cases have about 15-20% risk that they will not "cure" the problem - even if perfect surgery is performed for you! if you don't fit that category, pain usually subsides and resolves within a few weeks. ...Read more
