Ever since having my gallbladder out, i've been having stomach/digestive problems and mild pain on the right side. Could there be a post-surgery probl?

Possibly: Similar pain after gallbladder surgery may be related to the gallbladder. It really depends how long after surgery it is occurring. If it's within a week, it is probably just post-surgical pain. If it is longer, than stones may be present in the main duct and cause symptoms. You need to speak to your surgeon. ...Read more

Not usually: Unless you have a stricture of the pancreatic duct it would be unusual for the biliary system to cause a problem. Would be concerned about irritable bowel syndrome. Have a set of liver enzymes with amylase taken and see what they find. A GI specialist would be the person to see. ...Read more

Sounds complex: First - call your her is surgeon, and go in for a visit. If you want another opinion, check the americas hernia society website to find a surgeon interested in hernias. Too much for this forum like this to come up with a diagnosis. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Gall Bladder removal on my 24 year old wonderful daughter Post surgery, blood pressure very high muscle spasms, periods of unresponsiveness MRI clear?

Gall Bladder removal on my 24 year old wonderful daughter  Post surgery, blood pressure very high muscle spasms, periods of unresponsiveness MRI clear?

Drug reaction?: May be a reaction to one if the myriad of medications, including the anesthesia that caused this, assuming it happened immediately after the operation. Ask for follow up with the anesthesiologist to get more input. If itnhappened in the operating room, it could have been related to a gas embolism, and that would resolve on its own. I'm sure she'll come around and be fine. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Are there any ways to reverse gallbladder problems in their early stages to avoid surgery?

Are there any ways to reverse gallbladder problems in their early stages to avoid surgery?

Unknown: I do not know if you mean gallstones or not. Many people can have gallstones their entire life with no problems & never need surgery. Once gallstones form they do not go away on their own or resolve with dietary changes or "gallbladder flush." once discomfort or pains occur from gallstones, then surgery becomes more likely needed. ...Read more

My gallbladder surgery caused almost immediate weight gain, and I know it's related because I didn't have a weight problem before. Why?

My gallbladder surgery caused almost immediate weight gain, and I know it's related because I didn't have a weight problem before. Why?

Water?: Could be due to generalize water retention after the operation. This will go away as you go through the recovery period. May last 1-3 weeks. This depends of course when you had your surgery. If you're concerned something is wrong, call your surgeon. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Have irritated or damaged nerve or nerves from having laparoscopy gallbladder surgery what is the best way to cure this problem?

Are you sure?: Laparoscopy doesn't damage nerves during removal of the gall bladder. What makes you think that happened? I have done hundreds of these procedures and never heard of nerve damage as a side effect or complication of this procedure. ...Read more
