    They are called phantom pain. Usually after gallbladder removal months later you can get these pains where it used to be. Don't sweat it you will always have pain where ever you had your surgery. Worry if pain is unbearable. Ok. Good Luck u should be fine.

    For a year you should be good. Your body will heal everyday with pain here and there. You had major surgery. Just Remember that. You will experience healing pain too. Ok so just take it easy. Don't worry. Stress ads to your pain too.😎

    Has your husband rubbed the incisions where the gallbladder was removed to break up the scar tissue

    After 6 months this is not true about infections. I am in treatment now for the scar tissues adhering to my intestines because I did not massage the scar tissue around the incisions. I suggest you talk to a physical therapist and let them tell you about what scar tissue can do.
