Aching around ribs/chest after gallbladder surgery
I just recently had surgery to remove my gallbladder two weeks ago. Everything has been fine, post-surgery wasn't too bad and I have nearly full movement again. Just recently in the last couple of days, I've begun to have this aching feeling in my chest and ribs area, almost feels sore. I can feel it when I breathe deep or lay on my side, or even if I bend over a little bit so that my chest compresses.
Is this just a normal side effect of having surgery in general or should I be concerned? Like I said besides this aching, there's really no other pain and everything is healing up nicely, at least from what I can see on the outside.
@sarah my niece dealt with it for about 6-8 weeks after my surgery. It comes and goes. But it's been pretty well for a while. From what I've heard, it's a side effect from the surgery.
