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

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.

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... .

My tubal clip came off after my gallbladder surgery can I get pregnant?

Probably not: It is likely that your tubes were also cut and burned on the ends with cauterization. That should still stop you from getting pregnant. I would call the surgeon who performed the tubal ligation to discuss this with him/her. Only they know what they did during the procedure. ...Read more
