Do you have any fevers, nausea, vomiting?
When did it start?
How many days ago was surgery?
What did you surgeon say?
??how did he get to that point?
That is the source of your pain.
It is probably from post-op air.
Did you surgeon feel the same way?
Does that make sense?
You should have a repeat ultrasound of Right upper quadrant to see if there is more or less air
Do you have the official CT report you can share?
So there is more air/air then just behind the liver.
I would use a heating pad
All of you pain is from post-surigcal changes.
Did you get any pain medications?
What helps the pain?
What makes it worse?
Have you had an fevers?
Is it worse with food?
Nausea, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort are normal after gallbladder surgery.
I suspect a lot of your pain is from the air in your omentum, mesenteric fat, and subcutaneous tissue.
You really need some type of pain medications until your body can heal.
You should try medications sure a Cymbalta, Effexor, or amitriptyline.
You can also take tylenol or ibuprofen.
Heating pad will help bring blood flow to the area which will improve healing.
Walking will also improve healing.
Are all your wound healed?
Ultimately, you're going to need another CT scan to see if the air is improving
To make sure it is not getting worse or to see if there is an abscess
It is a combination of muscle and air
Kate, I'll let you talk to someone with more surgical experience.
