gall bladder surgery / swollen foot after

Hi, 3 weeks ago I had emergency gall bladder surgery. I had been getting very painfull bouts in my stomach every day for about 3 to 4 hours. My urine was dark red and I had uncontrollable itching on my feet and legs. I knew I had gall stones. I was waiting to see a specialist but then it came on with the pain.
Now 3 weeks after I don't seem to be healing the way I think I should. My stomach seems bloated still and it is tender. In the last week my right foot is swelling up all the time. So big I can't get my shoe on. I do also have a history of liver problems. I did interferon treatment for hepatitis C a couple of years ago.
Has anyone heard of this swelling in the feet after surgery ?

No, that is not normal. See your doctor asap. It could be a blood clot or something else jsut as serious.
