Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
I am online and happy to help you with your question today.
What other medical problems do you have and what medications do you take? When did this pain start?
Hi, the pain started some days ago. I am currently taking Tramadol for joint pain (rheumatoid arthritis and osteo arthritis) and also paracetamol.
I also have started taking Omeprazol again, which I stopped taking post-op.
I have moderately low thyroid function and take tabs for that.
Nan, At this point I think the best thing for you to do is to call your surgeon and have him take a look at you.
Do you think it could be related to my recent surgery?
Given the extent of the surgery you needed just a few months ago I think this would be a lot safer then trying to deal with your new symptoms at home with the possibility of things just getting worse.
Does this make sense to you?
Yes it does... am thinking maybe it could be gall bladder trouble .. am I in 'the right area' painwise for that?
Yes. That is where your gallbladder is located.
ok, and can that start up for no reason?
Yes. It sure can :(
But it could also be from a complication of your surgery, perhaps some scar formation causing difficulties etc.
So, as I'm in Denmark, and it is midnight here, a call to my doctor in the morning would be wise?!
Best to have it checked out.
From what you have posted , I believe it would be safe to call your MD in the morning.
It is 5 pm here in Wisconsin USA.
Thank you. Just hate to be pestering medical services for no reason!!
