    Sounds like a good plan. Sadly I have had way too many abdominal surgeries. 4 open, 3 lap- and wasn't having these symptoms this far out with even the open, so I tend to worry.
    You may also have scar tissue starting to form, so some massage in the areas around your incisions would not be out of line.

    Wow! Why so many surgeries? If you don't mind me asking.

    My main bother/concern is the skin sensitivity, my very light t-shirt brushing my skin hurts.

    The shoulder pain also effects my shoulder blade. Do you know the pain you get when running? Either in your shoulder or your side? That's how it feels, but worse.

    Tomorrow, doctor for sure.

    That part sounds like gas from the surgery that has not escaped. Walking will help that some.
    Oh the surgeries were no biggie, I heal faster than us horse gals can spend money at a tack sale.
    3 c- sections, with delivery complications so belly button to the end of the earth there
    1 open hysterectomy with resection of scars and adhesions
    1 gastric bypass surgery
    1 gall bladder removal, and ovary cysts removed.

    I shall send you some of my healing light!

    When my boyfriend had his gallbladder out, it was no 6 day and pain free. I wish it was, poor guy.

    Which kind did he have? Were there multiple incisions or just one big one?

    You're having a lot of the issues I was having. Actually...it sounds like you might have similar health problems to me too ;) I've been tested for everything you were tested for and so far the only diagnosis is GERD and excessive bile in the entire GI tract. My gallbladder was removed in Feb 2012 after I had a HIDA scan and they found my gallbladder working at 3% also. Having the gallbladder out only levitated some of my pain for a few months though, then I started having more complications. I'm convinced that some of the complications (such as EXTREME food sensitivity) are because of my gallbladder removing. I almost wish I hadn't had it taken out.

    Try doing small movement exercises if you can. Even though the GB surgery is laparoscopic (I had 2 incisions) they have to cut through a lot of tissue and muscle to remove the Gall Bladder, especially if it is swollen and angry. This can cause a LOT of tightness from the bellybutton towards the right, and above where your gallbladder was also, because that's the path they use to pull the GB out. Tiny, frequent exercises such as getting up and walking around the house, then SLOWLY bending a little to the right, then left, then down can help keep your muscles loose as they mend. I didn't move around enough after my surgery and my muscles healed very tight, which caused discomfort for about a month until I was able to stretch them enough for normal movement.

    Walking will help with the pain in the upper right also. It sounds like you probably DO have some surgery gas still in your body and that hurts if you can't get rid of it. The more you walk, the more your body with loosen, and the better you'll feel.


    Vomiting could also have messed something up as you said. I vomited twice on the second day after my surgery, and I had a fever day 1, 2, and 3 but not after that, so that is worrisome.

    Sorry to hear that you're going through so much. Hugs, it will get better soon! I was feeling much better after about two weeks.

    Thank you so much Endiku! What worried me is that I didn't have fever at all until day 3/4. At the same time the sensitivity showed up.

    I do have lots of GI issues. They've also done SED rate and Rumatiod (sp?) Factor labs done for the joint pain which were also normal.

    Maybe we have the same issues.. Have you been checked for Lupus?

    OP, you really need to see your physician. Stop putting it off and give them a call or go to ER before you become septic.

    Fever and pain just days afterr surgery is not normal. Didn't they give you post op instructions? I guarantee you will see those two symptoms on there are quite serious and you need to be seen.

    I shall be your mother here and give you some tough love. Call your Dr!
