There : There are several possibilities - either that these symptoms are related to the partial hysterectomy and may represent a complication, or that this is totally unrelated and a coincidental process. Assuming that your mother had no previous symptoms, then i would suggest that this is related somehow to her recent surgery. I was struck with your comment that her gynecologist mentioned that the appendix might have to be removed after surgery if there are any complications with it - did they see any problems with her appendix? If so, then it may well be some appendiceal pathology. Complications related to any abdominal surgery include: adhesions, infection and bleeding. If she has an elevated white count or fever, then this may reflect infection. Other pathologies may include gallbladder, pancreatitis, kidney stones, urinary tract infection, diverticulitis of the colon, infection of the colon related to antibiotics, such as c. Difficle colitis. You should have your mother seen by the surgeon that operated on her. She may need further testing such as an ultrasound or ct scan along with blood work. ...Read more
