Knee pain after gallbladder surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain after gallbladder surgery


I had laparoscopic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> and they gave me antibiotics as well as they did when I had back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. However, the general surgeon that was going to perform my laparoscopic gall bladder surgery said there was no need for me to take the antibiotics for this type of surgery. I argued with him and he said there was no need and to trust him.
If the body can naturally expell the stones or the majority of stones by this means, why not offer it to patients before the drastic measure of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>? My father had his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gallbladder</span> removed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> suffering for years....and you know what?....he still suffers from pain and experiences problems with certain foods. Wow what a solution to his problem. The "gallbladder flush" I am referring to consists of virgin cold-pressed olive oil and the juice of fresh lemon.
Unfortunately martial arts studies increases my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> which has become more or less constant. Climbing stairs and bending/crouching is extremely painful, and my knees grind (you can see and feel the grinding) and pop/lock constantly. I've seen my general practitioner who thinks it is patellofemoral syndrome. Physical therapy did not help and I have a stomach disorder that makes taking NSAIDs very difficult.
I went through pretty much the same thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> - piriformis like syndrome on both sides then the tingling, burning in hands, feet, hips and quads. I have a lot of symptoms similar to Lyme Disease, but my Igenex tests that I sent to the U.S. (I'm Canadian) came back Neg. My neurologist put me on Elavil low dose to help with the pain but he also has suggested that my issues are "psychological" from stress.
When the pain first started I thought it might be the CO2 migrating around from the gallbladder removal since I had a similar acute <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my shoulder the first day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> which was explained as being due to the CO2. But after nearly 2 weeks post surgery the CO2 should be fully absorbed. I have no chills or fever - just the constant hip pain. What could be causing this pain?
I kept it off for about a year, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> and a year of lower back problems, and really falling back into bad eating habits, I ended up back up to over 240 lbs by late last year. But I had not had any gall bladder symptoms over this time that I knew of. Then, pretty much of out of the blue, on Dec. 27 I had the worst attack I've ever had, clearly a 10 out of 10 on the pain scale, right in the middle under my rib cage.
In my opinion I doubt that your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, leg and hip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is related to your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gallbladder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>, unless they injured something while moving you during the process. Burning and numbness with pain are often related to nerve impingement or inflammation or even injury. Normally the source of the pain originates from another site and is referred to the areas you are experiencing pain. Therefore the pain could originate in the hip, SI Joint or the spine or even another source.
If you read posts across the web, there are so many people that have worse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> and some have even been seriously injured due to mistakes made by the surgeon. Now on the flipside, there are people out there that have had a lot of success from back surgery; however, they seem to be in the minority. I think your decision on whether or not to have surgery needs to be an informed decision.
I have 2 stents placed on 2 of my arteries 8 days ago and some minor chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> just 2 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> that. The ECG didn't show anything abnormal. There was no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> since then but I still have some chest discomfort. Nobody seem to know exactly whether it is normal or not, but I feel a little better after reading this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
I have chronic back, neck, leg, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. Also stomach issues, HBP and thyroid. I get swelling all over, the doctors ignore it. I can barely walk after being active my whole life. Just one thing--it's hard to read your posts. Put paragraphs in, it helps. I keep getting lost. I am searching for answers also. I think I have an autoimmune disease, but they keept saying no because *it doesn't show in blood tests.
Is it 'typical' to have hip and leg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 9 years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> my second scoliosis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>? I had my first surgery at age 13 and the rods extended to L3 but my bottom curve (originally a S curve; don't remember degrees?) and I began to experience pain as well as bulging of my upper right back/shoulder blade. So, in 2001, at age 18, I had my second scoliosis surgery with the same doctor (very well known and respected) and this time they replaced my old rods with Herrington rods from L1-L5.
I experienced the same thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in (testicle)'s. What got rid of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> was i wore spandex for the last 6-8 weeks after the surgery. And if it was hurting that means i was walking around to much. Which means slow down and sit down on the couch and watch tv until the pain goes away. Only time, care, and rest can nurse a herina back to full strength. P.
If we schedule this for 6 months after the stent was placed, and get her off Plavix and back on it as soon as possible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the hip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>, would this work, or do we need to wait longer for this type of stent to do its thing and get the endthelization completed, since it takes longer for these stents? I should also mention that she has a pacemaker/defib and seven other bare metal stents from a previous heart attack, and one artery totally blocked currently.
So I guess I will take whatever they give me immediately after the surgery and refuse anything else.
I notice that most of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> comes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> I have something to eat. However it seems as though I have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> always but in different degrees. I would like to know what ideas are out there for me to try. All my blood work has come back normal and also they found no evidence of an infection. Please help if you can as I seem to be on hold at this time as I am waiting for more tests.
I was never given any information about how to adjust eating habits <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> JIB but very shortly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> I met someone who had hers before me. She was anorexic-looking and had mono. I made a decision at that time to eat to ensure I get nutrients in. Dump and eat, dump and eat. Lots of veggies and lots of supplements. Unfortunately the bloating and gas and smelly 'poops' are part of it but I'd rather be healthier and fat than what this other lady was. Another odd final comment.
I cramped severely for the rest of the day I had my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> on, but woke up the next day literally <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> free. I was totally <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> free and only had the watery light brown/clear discharge up until a few days ago. Since about 3 days ago, I've been having pain that feels like it's getting progressively worse with each day, and my discharge is no longer watery, it's got consistency to it and yellowish in color.
Also, do a search for Sarno on Wikipedia and open the link provided by ABC News 20/20 and John Stossel. Sarno helped him <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> 15 years of back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. Forget the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. Forget the drugs. Get pain-free. Get your life back. Read Dr. Sarno!!
I say NO to any liquid or extreme diets. What is the hurry?! There isn't any reason to rush. Drastic calorie reductions reduce muscle mass, metabolism, heart strength, etc. And can cause gallbladder and liver damage extremely quickly (i.e. in DAYS in some cases!). If you do feel the need to lose weight, just eat reasonable portions of reasonable foods, and do as much exercise as you can reasonably do. That is good advice in any case and for any weight.

_______ Dear Vynetta, Clips are used to occlude blood vessels during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. There are always clips left during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. It would be unusual to attribute <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> to the clip. We know that if the gall bladder is removed for atypical abdominal pains, then the pain will often recur postoperatively. In addition to the possible causes for pain listed in your e-mail, one must also consider irritable bowel syndrome, diseases of esophagus, stomach and intestine.

I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> just a little over a year ago with no MS effects. But by the same token I also had no surgery ill effects and was walking around without aid the day afterwards ( though a little bit slower than normal).
a growth on my ovary that continued growing over 3 months. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> for 6 months off and on and a trip to the emergency room, with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> so severe it made me double over, it was found on a CAT scan that I had a good size cyst that they thought burst. When I went to my OBGYN and had a vaginal sonogram they found not a cyst that had burst but one that doubled in size from the 2 weeks prior trip to the emergency room.
I had nausea and vomitting and abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gallbladder</span> hida scan says it needs to come out. But now I am extremely fatigued and have leg pain. Sometimes its in my arms or neck too. Its not the joints its like the bone or center area. I got a bad migraine the other day on the right side of my head and then right after a bloody nose real bad on just my right nostril. I found this odd.
