Recently post RNY surgery and might be having possible "Gall Bladder" Issues
I had RNY on March 2nd. Everything has been going well. I started a soft foods diet about 2 weeks ago. I noticed last week that I was experiencing some pain in my upper abdomen near my rib cage on the right side. It was a dull ache type of discomfort and it would come and go. Mostly I experienced it later in the day. I also have noticed that if I stand up after being seated & try to take in a deep breath, that I have a tight feeling in my upper abdomen and it feels uncomfortable. I've read online that some of my symptoms could spell gall bladder isuues/problems. I have lost 35 lbs in about 1 month and 1 week. I know that rapid weight loss can trigger gall bladder problems. I do have an appt to see my RNY surgeon tomorrow to discuss my discomfort/pain. My question is, based on my symptoms, do you think I likely might have gall stones or gall bladder trouble? Thanks
