    Pressure/pain- Gallbladder removed 3 days ago

    Ok, so I had my gallbladder removed laparoscopically almost four days ago. I stopped taking my pain pills last night because they were making me neurotic and also because I have a family member who has recently recovered from narcotic addiction and came home yesterday. I felt great until tonight, when a slight pressure started building near my navel incision ( NB I have about 6 sq inches of really dark and painful bruising around that incision) and it got progressively worse to the point that I can't even stand the pressure of clothing or an ice bag on the incision or surrounding skin. My other family member who has locked up the pain pills (literally; they're in a safe) took a sleeping pill. I have taken two Advil, and ice is out of the question.
    Help me please!!!

    (Possibly) important info:
    -The skin is hot near the incision-- really hot
    -I don't have a fever
    -I can't wake up my family member to get the pain pills
    -my steri strips fell off about two hours ago on every incision but the one that hurts

    I do feel for you
    My experience was totally problem free, but I had stitches that needed to be removed manually after a certain period
    I didn't take any painkillers

    The hotness sounds like an infection is developing...time to seek medical opinion I would think

    Sounds like a complication has arisen. Please get medical attention right away! My sister had a life threatening complication, a duct was knicked during surgery and was leaking into her abdomen. She was rushed back to the OR. Prayers are with you.

    I had my gallbladder removed last year in November, 2 operations because they missed some stones, both through key hole surgery an a drip bag.. I had 5 incisions, I did have a bit of pressure for the next few days, it's because they fill your stomach with air before they remove the stones. I couldn't have any pain meds due to health issues, was only on panadol for the first night.. It was uncomfortable for a couple days.

    But that my experience
