I had gallbladder surgery (lap) on Friday afternoon. That went fine, although I had major knot in my lower back muscle due to hospital bed, etc. Now, since Sunday I have been having a very productive cough. I cough up chunks of phlegm that are colored almost brownish-green. IS this normal after surgery, or could I be getting an infection? My son had the start of bronchitis a few days prior to me going into surgery.
I called my surgeon & the receptionist said to check with family dr. I don't have other symptoms. I know this board can be helpful in times.
