My small intestine was perforated during a GYN procedure. I had complained about pain afterward for weeks but the perforated bowel was left untreated for four weeks.
I ended up in the emergency room, had become septic at this point and required bowel resection, my appendix was removed and I had a horrible infection. My entire abdominal cavity was full of infection/fluid.
Since the infection and surgery i have had pain in my right side under my ribs. Months after my release from the hospital, I am experiencing problems with my gallbladder now and it too may have to be removed. I am trying to find out if my gallbladder issue (that i never experienced before) would be related to the previous infection?
