So I had laprascopic gallbladder surgery a week ago. I have healed up externally OK, but have pretty bad pain where my gallbladder was. What's going on?

    Remember, your body is still trying to function without an organ. I still get them from time to time. Almost like phantom pains, where the body thinks the organ is still there and it isn't.

    Go to your GP ..or nearest a and e you can have stones left in your bile duct that work there way out. A scan will see them .. If you do at least you will know what the pain is and they can monitor them ..remove if stuck...sometimes they hide in the liver ... The temperature is worrying look out for signs of your skin yellowing jaundice ...hope it is nothing but healing pains but best to check ...

      I had my gallbladder removed 6 months ago.

      Thought it was fine but as time has moved on getting pain in my right side again.

      Dr thinks it is either IBS or a stone stuck in my bile duct (though she thought that was unlikely)

      Bloods are all fine.

      Due to have endoscopy (camera down throat) beginning of December.

      Never had one before.

      Will this show if thee is a stone stuck somewhere?

    Hopefully this is just phantom pain.

    I would not worry ab out the fever too much, this is the weather for coughs and colds, flu etc etc.

    Take care and keep in touch
