    Default post-gallbladder surgery

    Hi to all my fellow lupus peeps,

    I had my gallbladder removed yesterday and I am glad.

    I know that it was needed.

    I am really really sore though. They did the lap-coly surgery so no stay in the hospital.

    what is weird is I have a UTI and am on antbiotics (macrobid) and I still feel like my kidney hurts some.

    My temperature is a steady 97.2 though. I am never at 98.6.

    anyone else have a below normal temp all the time?

    hi luvpinkpeeps, yes, my temperature is always below normal....if it registers 98.6, then i am sick. so glad your surgery is over, but i can't believe that you have a UTI, you need a break from all of this.

    I am glad, your surgery is over. What were you symptoms, what prompted the gallbladder surgery? I am having some abdominal issues.
    Hope your UTI is getting better.

    hi Debbie,

    my first bad attack was back pain that wrapped around to the front under my rib cage, it lasted 4 hours.

    at first I thought it was just a back spasm.

    also had pain and uncomfortable feelings in the right side right under ribcage many times that lasted only about 10 mins.

    They finally did a CT scan because the ER doc suspected a kidney stone, only to find gallstones.
