Post Surgery Follow-Up

Well, I survived my gall bladder surgery I had done last week (April 1st). My recovery went pretty good, but I was so fatigued. My first day back to work was yesterday (Monday). Although, I made a huge mistake and ate a burger, fries and a shake last night and I got such bad diarrhea. I came to the conclusion that this was probably not the best decision I made and now know I have to probably say goodbye to that kind of food. I have my post-op on Thursday. My incisions are healing quite nicely, but I have developed a rash on my right arm. Could this be related to surgery or something totally different? Otherwise, recovery is coming along nicely. Thanks.

Re: Post Surgery Follow-Up

You ate fat????? Please, don't do that for another 3 weeks. No fat. Then slowly, like one pat of butter a day, introduce it back into your diet. One tiny little duct is having to take over the function of a whole gallbladder. If you stress it now, it will never work right.

The rash is probably coincidental.
