Avatar f tn I went through pretty much the same thing after knee surgery - 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.
Avatar n tn hi, gallbladder removel should always be the last option, a painfree period of 6 months should be advised by your surgeon, if your painfree in less than 6 months then your of the lucky ones, my personel opinion about gallbladder disease and how to avoid surgery and pain is through a healthy diet- raw fruit and vegies, plenty of water and fish, goodluck.

Avatar n tn Best of luck with the post gallbladder surgery. My son's surgery was two years ago and he still has relapses varying from weekly to a couple weeks apart. The benign tumorsin his gallbladder did not necessitate the removal; it was a knee jerk reaction in that he did not have insurance at the time.Rarely will he go a month without chills, cramping,then vomiting bile in that order.
Avatar f tn Thanks for your update. It's good to hear from you again. I am delighted to hear that you are healing. Wonderful News!! I've researched your past posts and can't find the diagnosis on this last knee surgery. I know it was to be an arthroscopic but if you have a large scar it sounds like it turned out to be more involved. Can you share with us what your surgeon discovered? You back and hip pain may well be as we discussed on your last post...
Avatar n tn I had my gallbladder removed about 1 month ago. My pain from surgery has gone away, but I get these extremely sharp pains in the middle of my stomach, under the breast bone, that also radiates through my upper back and shoulders. It causes me to double over, break out in a sweat, turn white. It lasts maybe 10 - 15 minutes and then is gone and I feel fine. I also have GERD and fibromyalgia. Has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar n tn I had my gallbladder removed on April 2, 2007 through open surgery after giving birth of my baby son (Caesarean) on December 29, 2006. There were at least 20 very small structure stones found in the gallbladder. However, even after removal I continue to feel pain quite frequently in my right front chest. The pain gets more worse after a long strecth work. I am maintaining a good diet and try to eat small amount in regular intervals.
1092452 tn?1257350509 I can tell you from their experience that everyone heals at different rates. Pain should be less after surgery than it was before surgery once the initial surgical pain has ceased. Is your knee warm to touch or red or swollen? I don't know what your surgeon is telling you. If you haven't seen him recently I suggest that you return for an evaluation. If he ignores your complaints and concerns than I suggest that you see another ortho.
Avatar f tn I remember this kind of pain and discomfort after my gallbladder surgery and a C-Section. It is normal to have this after surgery while the muscles and whatnot are repairing and healing. It can be a long road recovering from surgery, so try to take it easy and make sure you follow up with your doctor. I agree with what CalGal said too, as your body does need time to figure out how to process food without the use of your gallbladder.
Avatar n tn m a 42-year-old woman who, about two years ago, I developed gallbladder-type pain and other symptoms. After having my gallbladder removed and another surgery called a sphincterotomy, I've learned that there are many things that can cause these symptoms including Post-Cholecystectomy Syndrome, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction and Pancreatitis, among other things.

Avatar f tn I got pregnant 4 months after having my gallbladder removed,im 25 weeks pregnant now,i havent had any issues with it,phantom pains after the surgery are very common and it also could be the baby is lying too like a foot kicking your ribs...in previous pregnancies i have had that....
Avatar n tn When the pain first started I thought it might be the CO2 migrating around from the gallbladder removal since I had a similar acute pain in my shoulder the first day after the surgery 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?
Avatar f tn I had my right knee TKR in June 2010, I cannot recall what the pain was pre-op, but I do know that it is very bad and has been since surgery. I have fairly good function with the knee and am able to do the work I love (I would be very depressed to lose that) but work is the whole of my life as it HURTS during the work day and it takes the rest of my day to 'recover' somewhat. I have pain in the night quite often and pain upon waking.
Avatar f tn The main thing that may be causing the pain you describe is sometimes after gallbladder surgery, people are in so much pain and are so tired, that they will do this protective posture where they bend at their stomach and at their shoulders. So you need better pain control, and press a pillow firmly against your surgical site whenever you feel pain moving around, and in a very quiet room do some deep breathing whilst laying down, knees bent, arms out to your side, to really relax.
Avatar n tn It is VERY possible for her to have pains right after or long after GB surgery. And if that pain is present and if she's also having an added problem with diarrhea and perhaps other things that can go along with the whole problem, it would be no wonder she lost weight. The problem as I see it is most docs who listen to what's going on are going to brush off the pain and the possibility of the problem (sphincter of Oddi dysfunction; SOD) as non-existent.
Avatar f tn I hate to read you are suffering. A knee replacement is suppose to improve your function and it does not sound like that has been your experience. Have you talked to your doctor about your symptoms? Has he/she given you any feedback? I have not had a knee replaced but hope someone here who has will write to you. You might also post in the orthopedics forum as I know they talk about joint replacements there as well.
Avatar f tn After gallbladder surgery they often do not tell you that the sludge from your gallbladder will drain down causing terrific pain. Or that you may have what is known as phantom pains for potentially the rest of your life.
Avatar f tn About 2 months after I fell I had increased pain in my neck and right shoulder. For 6 months after the onset of pain it was discovered that I had a moderately herniated disc at C5-C6 vertebra that had pushed into my spinal cord. I was advised by my neurologist that surgery was needed in order to avoid any further damage as well as prevent any further permanent nerve damage. In February of that year I had a cervical discectomy and a bone graft was inserted to ensure my vertebra would fuse.
Avatar n tn I HAD MY GALLBLDDER REMOVED 11-13-08 AND EVERY SINCE I HAVE HAD PAIN ON MY RIGHT SIDE WHEN I LIE DOWN OR WHEN I YAWN,COUGH, OR TAKE A DEEP BREATH, I HAVE HAD XRAYS, CAT SCAN, AND MY SURGEON CAN'T SEEM TO KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS, HE SUGGESTED THAT I GET AN SECOND OPINION WHICH I AM SCHEDULED FOR ON 5-18-08. CAN YOU GIVE ME ANY INPUT ON THIS OR WHAT IT COULD BE. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
