I always freak out and worry that it’s my liver or pancreas (I’ve had slightly elevated bilirubin levels) but after ready numerous accounts of others with upper right pain post lap chole, I think this is a common outcome that should be addressed by the surgeon or GI doc pre-surgery. No blame to docs but would be nice to know what to expect post surgery. At least I wouldn’t have spent 11 years worrying!
Going to start on prilosec next week. Having another ultrasound next week. Will discuss SOD with GI doc”
