Right Side Abdominal Pain After Gallbladder Removal Surgery?
, my wife had surgery to remove the gallbladder in July 2017 because there were gallstones, now she has pain in the right side of the abdomen, the pain is the same as before the operation, after a urine test it turns out that there is bilirium fluid in her urine. Guess what the cause is ? And what should we do?
Thanks for the question. Pain in the right upper abdomen after undergoing gallbladder removal can be caused by:
tissue adhesions after hepatitis surgery an obstruction / blockage in the duct after the gallbladder Other causes not related to the liver and biliary organs such as intestinal ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome Bilirubin is a substance that gives a yellow color formed from the breakdown of red blood cells. Normally, bilirubin is not found in the urine. Bilirubin found in the urine can be caused by a disturbance in the biliary tract or bile duct (the tube where the gallbladder and liver meet). This positive result can also be a false positive result, for example because the urine is contaminated with feces. To determine the cause of your wife's complaints, you should suggest that your wife consult an internal medicine specialist first. The doctor will need to find out more about your wife's complaints and conduct an examination on your wife. The doctor will also generally perform a blood test, ultrasound, or CT scan to find the cause. From the results of this examination, the doctor will determine the next treatment for your wife's condition.
For a while, you can take paracetamol to relieve pain.
Hope this information is useful.
