I am a 40y/o female. I recently had a lap chole (11/2/09) after suffering from gallbladder pain throughout my third pregnancy. My daughter was born 09/10/09. I am 5'5" currently weigh 128lbs about 10 lbs aqbove my pre-pregnancy weight. I weighed 156lbs at delivery. I worked out throughtout my pregnancy and keep myself in fairly good shape. My question is this-- about 4 days ago I developed ecchymosis and slight swelling on the upper right side of my pelvic region and it is tender to touch. Could I have developed a hernia from the lap chole? My post-operative time was with little rest as I had a 40lb 2y/o boy and an infant girl to care for.
