I got my gallbladder out just about 3 weeks ago, I m just starting to feel back to normal when I have broke out in Hives. Very itching! The dr. did a CAT scan to verify that I didn't have a bile leak because of exaggerated pain and swelling (test was negative for leak) Now hives< could they be related or just bad luck? any ideas?????
I am also thinking the hives could be from something you ate. Or perhaps are you allergic to any medication you might be taken? I am post op myself 3 weeks..March 31st was my surgery. Hives it is not associated with gallbladder removal, that much I do know. I would ask him about meds you are taking.
Just like to share here. I had my gallbladder removed 1 year ago and less than 2 months later hive started to show. At first it was coming and going every 4 days, then more frequent, eventually every 1 or 2 days. I took Reactine extra strength and it disappeared 1 to 2 hours later. I saw many Drs, and Dermatologists, no one gave an explanation, nor anyone thinks there is any relationship between the removal and hive. As the removal approached 1 year anniversary, the hive disappeared. I have been hive free since, kind of, meaning occasionally I still feel some itchiness. No more Reactine. Hope my story help to inform
Same here. I got my GB removal 2 months ago, hives started to rise from last 15 days. Searching for 'triggers', but it seems to be everywhere..
in food, shaving, getting dressed for 8/9 hrs, lying, sitting.. everything..
I am getting frustrated :( :(
