I had my gallbladder out on february 4th 2006. About a week after the surgery I started getting frequent headaches. Yesterday on february 19 2006 I started getting a tingling sensation in my left hand and left foot. Before my surgery I had a sore tongue for about 6 weeks and also food tasted funny to me. Just wondering if the tingling could be related to the surgery/anesthesia.

I am no Dr. But it is generally related to the anesthesia, if you feel you are having more problems call your Dr.
I knew that after my gb surgery that their was something wrong and I kept calling and complaining and finaally they did aan x-ray and found some surgical equiptment in me like I believe it was surgiical scissors or something like that, it was a long time ago., so they went back in and got rid of them, after that, I was ok except I still cannot eat anything spicy or fatty.
Good luck!

Thanks for you reply. The reason I was asking is because before my surgery, I was having what I thought were mild signs of b12 deficiency. Now 2 weeks after surgery I am having the tingling, depression and headaches. I read somewhere on the net (can't find it now), that some anesthesias used in surgery can cause problems to your b12/folate levels even if you have normal b12 levels pre op. I am going to my gp on thursday and will bring this all up tp her.
