Gallbladder removed with laproscope

User Profile
Hi There,
I had my Gallbladder removed 2 and a half weeks ago with a laproscope. I started to feel better after about 10 days and then suddenly went down hill. I have quite a high temperature, Diarrhoea, and feel sick, dizzy and have a head ache a lot of the time.I have little energy and send the day lying on my bed!
I am in the process of waiting for the results of a stool sample to come back and have had my urine tested (some blood was found in it but no infection). I have also made sure I am eating a low fat diet and drinking lots.
I was wondering if you had heard of this happening before and if you have any idea what this may be. I feel like I have an infection somewhere but......
Grateful for any help you could give me please.

Gallbladder Disease Answer A15662
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. In view of the symptoms described by you, the possibility of cholangitis is there. In this, there’s a classic triad of fever, pain right upper abdomen and jaundice. Hence, will suggest to get your liver function tests done.

If there’s no jaundice, then the possibility of cholangitis is very less. AN ERCP also helps in ruling out the possibility of any obstruction in the bile duct which commonly occurs due to the stone only. Post cholecystectomy syndrome is another entity which is quite common.

Since the reservoir of bile i.e. gall bladder has been surgically removed, the bile straight away comes into the intestine & there’s a continuous flow and it can result in gastritis or pain in the upper abdomen. You should consult a gastroenterologist for the same as it is not possible to diagnose online. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
