    SlideStop, yes it was the medication. I didn't eat enough before I took it.

    Dreamcatcher Arabians, I know the shoulder pain is a syptom of the gallbladder problems I have, maybe that's the cause? I'm not sure.

    Thank you everyone for the help, my mom and I will figure out what we plan to do.

    I also have pain in the right side in my ribs, right where the underwire of a bra sits. Which is also suppose to be a gallbladder issue symptom. But I'd think with the gallbladder gone, why do I have pain?

    After donating my kidney, I was told to call IMMEDIATELY or go to the e.r. If there was any fever at all, even low grade. Call the doctor, PLEASE.

    You seriously need to quit posting and try calling the answering service or go to an ER to be seen. THere are several things that could be going on, some are pretty serious and not to be messed with. Honestly. Let us know what they say.

    Idk if you can have phantom pain after a removal like that.

    Please, call your doctor. I'm a meer nursing student, not a doctor, and I don't think there are any MDs (well not that I'm aware of) on this board. What your experiencing is NOT NORMAL. I work for a doctor and we have people have breast augmentation and are literally back to 90% of their normal functioning the very next day. The doctors has not prescribed a narcotic pain reliever all year for a breast aug surgery patient! They take nothing more then OTC tylenol. Some even walk out of the OR like NOTHING happened. Call your doctor or go to the ER!

    The pain you're having now is not a gallbladder symptom. 6 days post op you should be pretty much pain free. I was back to mucking stalls by then, wasn't allowed to ride yet, but I was pretty much back to normal.

    I'm glad to see you're calling the doc. It's something that needs to be checked out, we here aren't qualified to do much more than say, "You really should see a doctor about that.".

    I agree on the doctor. You could have an abcess in there. A strain would not cause fever most times.

    Thank you guys. I just wasn't sure that to expect, I've never had surgery. It says on my post-surgery instructions that a low grade temperature was normal, so I wasn't sure if I should worry. The sensitivity is what worried me most.

    I'm not sure if it would matter, but my mom, the both times she's had a c-section she got an infection. I'd assume something like that isn't genetic.. But you never know. I do know that morphine did NOT work on either of us, maybe it's a metabolism thing.

    They said that 101 is what's worrisom, and it's fine to come in tomorrow. My temperature is down to 99.6 now, without medicine. I'm just going to watch it tonight, if it spikes, ER here I come.
