Thursh on tongue and throat after Gall Bladder removal surgery

Its been 4 days since my gall bladder surgery which was done laprascopically and I now have thrush on my tongue and throat.  I go for my post up check up next Wednesday, is this thrush something to be concerned with now?  Should I go to the doctor or wait?  Why did I get thrush to begin with?

Hi...thrush is an infection from bacteria being introduced during surgery...many times it is in relationship to being intubated and the tube scratching the lining of the esophagus....this can continue to get worse causing ur tongue to swell and making talking diff and very uncomfortable.

Call ur dr ASAP to let him know so u can get on an antibiotic. If u r prone to yeast infections, ask for DIFLUCAN to help prevent that  too.

Good Luck
