Male night sweats post surgery

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi, I joined this sight in behalf of my partner to try and help him. He had his gall bladder removed 3 weeks ago and quite often since then he has been experiencing heavy night sweats. He hadn't had them before and I am trying to find out if this is happening to other people. Please can you share your experience if it happened to you? Thanks in advance.

    hi

    no not at all and mine was gangreene and emergency opp also ide been very ill with mine for 3 years prior, and i do mean very ill.

    mines been out over 2 years now and i still have pain 70 percent of the time where gallbladder was, and other digestive problems, but night sweats no not at all.

    i would suggest he goes to gp and has a full blood panel run just to be on the safe side .

    ide want to make sure they do a white blood cell count to just to make sure he has no internal infection going on !!!!! his normal white blood cell count should be between 4 and 11 its important ?

    Just to say I had my GB out 2 years ago and still get night sweats. I can't say it bothers me that much although not very nice. The only thing that bothers me is that I can't eat meat any more. A week after the op I ate pork and ended up in A&E with terrific pain. It's a case of your body taking time to get used to being without this organ. It just takes patience and time. Hope he's ok.
