I had my gallbladder removed on Jan 6. I returned to work 2 weeks after the surgery and even began working out at the gym a month after the surgery. I was feeling great for a while there. Then about a week ago I was sitting at working typing and felt a sharp pain in my upper right quadrant right under the ribs. I saw my doctor a few days later and had a x-ray of the chest and abdomen. The results came back normal but the pain was still there so I had a ct scan of my abdomen which also came back normal. I have pain and not knowing the cause is very nerve racking. The pain is relieved with heat, but the moment the heat is removed the pain is back. I hurt when I walk, the end of exhaling while breathing, when I burp (as I tend to do a lot after the surgery) and cough. I was also diagnosed with a hiatal hernia and take Prilosec. Before I had my gallbladder removed I was nautious 24 7 for aboutg a month and a half. I am just ready to feel good for a change.
