Gallbladder complications

47 y/o female .  I had gallbladder surgery (lapro).  Everything went well till the following week when vomiting and pain were experinenced.   I was admitted for a two overnight stay in the hospital.  Ct scan was done and revealed a large air mass in the stomach area.  Issue resolved.  I go home and three days later appear to have jaundice.  I go back to the ER.  Tests reveal no obstructions (via ultrasound), liver enzymes are up and billiruben is up.  Diagnosis is Acute Hepatitis.  We don't know which type yet.  I go back to the Doctor within the week.  Is it possible to get Hepatitis after surgery?   I don't understand.
