I had surgery 2 days ago for gallbladder lap. and they put a brownish orange chemical on my skin and now i have hives on my stomach. What should i do?

Take a shower

Abdomen
The brownish orange paint is most likely Betadine, an iodine containing antiseptic. Some patients will have some sensitivity, which may be the situation in your case. You can go into the shower and wash it off. Your bandaid incisions can get wet. It is less likely an allergic reaction to a medication that you got in the operating room. If it gets worse, contact your surgeon's office.

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

Liver
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.

What if your stomach is swollen after gallbladder surgery?

Common

Abdomen
Early after surgery, for several days, abdominal gas or bloating is common. Decrease narcotic pain medication usage and take a laxative if needed. Eat light and non-greasy foods at first. See your surgeon if you do not improve soon.

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

Rash

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.

Is it normal for your stomach to be swollen 3 days after gallbladder surgery?

Not unusual

Abdomen
After surgery, patients can have an ileus that can lead to bloating, or a "swollen stomach". Assuming that is your only symptom, then that is the likely cause. However, you need to contact your surgeon about this.

Dr. ROBERT Uyeda answered:

When after gallbladder surgery (laproscopic) before i can sleep on my stomach?

As soon as

Laparoscopy
you feel comfortable and are pain free when you do so. Trocar sites for laparoscopic gallbladder surgery are at most 10 mm in diameter, so chances of you hurting any of them are quite small.
