So I had my gallblader removed today. Pain isnt bad at all from the wounds but I do still have pain in my back on right shoulder area.
Its early days of course as I only came out of theater 6 hours ago.
But im wondering if anyone else still had the back pain after the op and how long for? I didnt have gallstones and all of my scans and bloods were nomal leading up to this operation. The consultant done an investigative laparoscomy and said if he saw anything unusal that he would address it, which included removal of the gallbladder should he see anything unusual. The recover nurse told me everything was normal and gallbladder removed which i found odd as the surgeon was reluctant to remove the organ in the first place. When my wife called to check on me the nurse had said my gallbladder was abnormal, which im guessing is more accurate. However I have not spoje to the consultant or doctor yet as it was late after my op so im guessing i will be informed in the morning.
Would the surgeon be able to see sludge or tiny stones in the duct work with this procedure as i still have the same feeling in my back. Im guessing i had biliary micro lithiasia but i could be wrong.
Would sphincter of oddi dysfunction cause back pain also.
Im starting to worry that the op hasnt helped me and if removal of the gallbladder didnt remove symptons even the consultant said he didnt know where to go from here.
