White bump/ pimple on gallbladder incision and pain in upper right quadrant

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello. I’m 2 months post op from gallbladder surgery. I recently just noticed a little white bump almost like a pimple on one of my incisions. I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced that. Also, I’m been having a pain right where my gallbladder used to be. It doesn’t hurt only when I bend down and lift my right leg or when I move in a certain way. It’s like a pinching pain. Thoughts? Anything would help. I’ve been having a lot of anxiety lately.

    As for the bump I don't know it's probably is a little puss pocket. As for your pain you just had major surgery. The pain is your muscles stretching and all inside you are building up scar tissue. You are going to feel a lot of weird pain in you stomach for a year. I went thru the same thing. So don't be alarmed you are just feeling healing pains. No need to stress over that ok.

    you sure? Today the pain has been like slowly throbbing and then it goes away. the pain just came out of nowhere I guess thats why I'm a little freaked.

    Hi there, Fernando is right, you have just had an organ removed that was attached to your liver, it will take time for this to heal, there are nerves near the site where they detach it that get disturbed during surgery and they send nerve pain around the place, I found round my right side. Be patient with this, it will settle down. Unless you develop high temperature, sickness etc then go straight to your dr. I am not medically trained, just my own experience of this surgery earlier this year.

    Good luck

    I think you have had 2 very good replies to be honest, with regard to the white pimple unless it changes colour it is probably innocent, just something for you to keep an eye on.  The pains are most certainly linked to removal as has been said, your body is adjusting to an organ being removed and this is invasive to our system so your body will react accordingly.  The fact your saying about anxiety is one of the major issues i have with GB attacks, this is one of the most horrible side effects, which is why I believe I excessively sweat with attacks when eating.  Only removal will prove this point, if proved by HIDA test whether my GB is working or not?  If my GB is working which I severely doubt, then boy am I in for a rough ride next year.

    However, if you really feel what you have read with peoples advice/posts, ALWAYS go to your DR, I for one am certainly not a Dr!
