Had my gallbladder removed, now fever and sensitivity.
A little history on my health; I have Hypothyroidism, and Eosinophilic Esophogitis (allery that effects the esophagus, causing inflammation and reflux) and some undiagnosed joint problems.
Over the past two years or more I've had many stomach problems. I've been tested for Celiac, Chrons, Diverticulosis, blah blah.. Just about everything out there. Celiac was a major suspect, but biopsies and blood tests show no gluten intolerance or even just a wheat allergy. (a was told that a carry the gene for Celiac though?)
I've been scoped both ways, which diagnosed the Eosinophilic Esophagitis but nothing else. After that they ordered a sonogram of my gallbladder which was fine, no stones. Then a HIDA/HITA? scan which showed my gallbladder was working at 31% ejection rate.
We talked with a surgeon and I had it removed on July 11th.
Now, I'm still in a good deal of pain. I have a constant pulling/stretching feeling on my lower right side (lets call it my flank :P lol) and everywhere within a 7-8 inch radius of my bellybutton incision is very sensitive skin wise, and also sore/bruised feeling.
I took my temperature yesterday and it was 99.6, and now it's 100.0.
Does anyone think I should be concerned? What was your experience with gallbladder removal?
