Subject: Adhesions following gallbladder surgery (laproscopic)
Hello to anyone out there that can help.
I had gallbladder surgery 8 weeks ago. No
complications EXCEPT the pain at the site of
my laproscopic incision didn't go away.
The area right below my ribs almost dead
center of my stomach hurts when I sit for
any period of time and starts to hurt if I
walk any distance. Once in awhile it hurts
after I've eaten. Would adhesions show up
on a contrast CAT scan?
My doctor has not even mentioned the
possibility of adhesions. He is sending
me for an endoscopy in 2 weeks to see if
it may be an esophageal ulcer. How can I
know for sure without having to have an
endoscopy? I think it is adhesions. The
second week after my surgery I went to
Seattle-sat 8 hrs without getting up-rode
public buses juggling me around for a week
and had dry heaves a week after I got home.
Could this stress on my surgical site cause
adhesions? HELP PLEASE
