Had my gallbladder out almost 5 months ago but really been struggling with the pain under my ribs and in my back for the past week. Been taking pretty strong painkillers as well as buscopan which normally helps a little but hasn’t been having any effect either. Waiting to go back to see surgeon as doc thinks there may be an infection somewhere in stomach. Have been having fevers pretty much since getting a wound infection 3 weeks post-op. Bloods are ok though! Guess I just thought I’d be feeling better by now instead of struggling to get through the day.
So i guess I’m wondering if anyone ended up with an abscess or infection after getting their gallbladder removed? Or any other idea why I still feel so rough so long after the surgery?
I am still glad it got removed though despite all this as wasn’t working properly
