I am at my two weeks of post op laparoscopic cholecystectomy and I have been having awful trouble.
My wounds are healing perfectly, the trapped gas (that caused unexpected inflamed humps of air on my neck and shoulder) has finally started to dissipate and I'm starting to get my energy back. I however am totally floored by some unusual symptoms that my surgeon nor my general GP warned me about.
#1 Red, Hot, unbearably Itchy bottoms of my feet and palms of hands
#2 Horrible lower back pain when bending/getting up that leads to my legs giving way and me falling over- does not radiate down legs.
#3 Pains where my Gallbladder used to be that take my breath away &
#4 Horrible trouble digesting food / bloating / diarrhoea
I don't know what to do, I go to my doctor and she says it's all due to the surgery and to speak to the surgeon / rest, t
So then I go to my surgeon and she tells me that what i'm experiencing isn't to do with my gallbladder removal and to go back to my doctor.
The only sure thing that I know so far is that my liver function test came back strange, so I had some more bloods done and I am waiting on the results. Can someone please shed some light on what's going on?
I'm going crazy
