I had laparoscopic gall bladder removal 10 days ago and now I have pain in my back on right side?

Call Your Surgeon. There are many possible explanations for your back pain, from simple musculoskeletal pain to the possibility of a stone in your common bile duct or a postoperative bile leak. Please return to see your surgeon so that (s)he can take a more complete history, examine you, and order the appropriate tests to get you well.

Chronic lower back pain 3weeks after gall bladder removal as well as pain in lower back & abdomen when passing bowel motion?

Common problems. Back pain is common after abdominal surgery due to position on the operating table. Problems with bowel movements are also common, due to pain meds and stress of surgical procedure and general anesthesia. These should all slowly get better within 6-12 weeks after the operation. There is of course high variability Amon individuals. Hope this helps! Read more...

I had emergency laparoscopic gall bladder removal 6 days ago. My ALT was 181, AST 127, AP 163, Glucose 168, and lipase 9. 1mo. Before, all were normal. They did not retest my blood. Now I have UTI & given cedifinir. Afraid it will affect liver.

LFT's. I would not worry about that particular antibiotic in this setting, but I do think it is important at some point, when ever your surgeon deems most appropriate, to recheck the liver tests to be sure that they normalize. If they do, and if your bile duct was normal in size, you should be fine. Good luck. Read more...

I had emergency laparoscopic gall bladder removal 2 weeks ago. I am still getting discomfort on back and upper right abdomen. I am afraid of bike leak or stone. Is it normal to still feel discomfort after 2 weeks? My liver enzymes retured to normal.

Yes. If there was inflammation or infection prompting an emergency gall bladder removal, then some level of discomfort for several weeks after the procedure is normal. Bile leak would cause significant abdominal pain, and a retained stone in the bile ducts would cause more intense and cramping pain. If any fever, see your doctor immediately! Read more...
