How to get rid of sickness after gallbladder surgery stay sick all time?

Get evaluated: If you are still sick after gallbladder surgery, then get in to see your surgeon, to evaluate you for a post operative problem. If you are free of post operative problem, then an additional diagnosis needs to be considered. Okay to ask about a stomach scope/egd, a tech hida scan and blood lab tests. Good luck. ...Read more

How do I get rid of a rash on my stomach from gallbladder surgery?

Rash: Some of the surgical "soaps" that are used to disinfect the skin before surgery can be irritating to the skin. If it is a contact dermatitis then benedryl cream will help with the itch and cortisone cream will help with the rash. You should probably at least contact your surgeon to see if he/she wants to evaluate it before treatment. ...Read more

Scar tissue from gall bladder removal surgery; what can be done to get rid of it and the pain?

Why scar tissue?: Scar tissue by itself doesn't usually cause pain. Have you ruled-out other causes of the pain? Ulcers? Gastritis? Pancreatitis? A retained bile duct stone? Incisional hernia? If no other cause can be found it might be due (indirectly) related to scar tissue if the scar was pinching your bowel or bile ducts... . Surgery could help to cut the scars but only after no other cause is found. ...Read more

May be: Something else. How long ago was your surgery? If the surgery was recent then muscle and gas pains can come and go & sometimes can be worse with large or fatty meals. If the surgery was longer ago then see your family doctor for an evaluation as pains can come from many sources. ...Read more
