Having had a cholecystectomy in the middle of July the scar in my navel is still itchy and a bit sore so I can't wear anything tight such as belts around my waist.
I'm fair skinned and the wound did become badly infected with an abcess so had to be opened up and cleaned out and then cleaned and redressed daily for a few weeks. It looks okay now but is just quite uncomfortable if I'm sitting for long or wearing jeans.
I've also had some nasty sick bug type thing and keep getting pain around my ribs and flanks now. I've been urgently referred to urology because of microscopic blood in my pee and my liver function tests are still not fully settled down. I don't know if any of this relates to my missing gallbladder though because I wasn't ill or in pain with it to begin with.
Anyone else had this and how long before your scar tissue stops being sore?
