Burning pain after gall bladder surgery
My sister, 50 yrs. old, had her gallbladder removed recently, after several attacks of severe pain. She is now only 5 days post-op, but has had a consistent burning, searing pain in the incision site right below her sternum (she did have laparoscopic surgery, and this is the largest of the openings). She is afraid there may be something seriously wrong, as the other 3 incisions have little or no pain at all. My question is...Can this be nerve pain? - Her description of the pain sounds exactly like the type of pain I had with shingles. Can a surgical procedure result in nerve pain - or is this something more likely related to whatever may have caused the gall bladder problem?
