Hard to say.: It's not due to an absent gallbladder. Are you constipated..that could lead to some left sided discomfort. Stay well hydrated, eat well (no fat restrictions now), add some yogurt, and talk to your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

I just had gallbladder surgery and i haven't urinated since i left the hospital. Should i be worried?

2 P or Not 2 P...: It is not uncommon for your bladder to get a bit "shy" after surgery due to the (pain) medications and anesthesia. If you do not feel the urge to urinate nor pain in the lower abdomen, i wouldn't worry. However, after 12 hours you should feel that urge; if not, i suggest you call your surgeon. ...Read more

Is it normal to have pain my right side three weeks after gallbladder surgery?

After open gallbladder surgery, i've had really bad lower right side back pain and spasms. I mostly slept sitting up after. Can that be the cause?

Maybe: Would need more information. How long ago was the surgery? In the first few weeks after major open abdominal surgery, there sometimes can be some back muscle pains due to abnormal posture while sitting or standing. Try changing positions, stand up more straight, walk more, use local heat on the muscles. See your surgeon to be sure that you are healing properly. ...Read more

Is it possible to get a gallbladder attack after gallbladder surgery? Sometimes i get sharp pains out of no where on my right side of my abdomen.

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

Larascopic gallbladder surgery 4 weeks ago. After 2wks shoulder pain, pain just below ribs on right side and in midback. Could it be a trapped nerve?

Larascopic gallbladder surgery 4 weeks ago. After 2wks shoulder pain, pain just below ribs on right side and in midback. Could it be a trapped nerve?

Check with your doc: If this is newly developing, there sometimes may be fluid collection around the liver after the surgery. There are different things that can lead to this, so difficult to tell you simply hear. But the sensory nerves for that part of the body refer pain to the right shoulder - so the right shoulder pain has to do with the area around the liver. Definitely speak with your physician. ...Read more
