a few weeks after my gallbladder surgery I started feeling really fatigued,
was running a fever of 102 and above, sweating profusely and pain in
right side. I finally was taken to hospital from ER with high white count,
high liver enzymes, fever and pain in right side.
The surgeon who performed the gallbladder surgery had test done, and
they showed that the common bile duct might be swollen, however, when
an MRI was done, the radiologist couldn't find any stones and the test
was negative. I was given antibiotics through an IV, kept in the hospital
for four days and the fever started to subside to 99.9. The sweats did
not. The pain let up. The doctor said that I was being tested for hepatitis
and that the results wouldn't be back for a few days. I was released
and am feeling a little better, but not back to normal. The doc said that
he didn't think it was hepatitis and did not know what was going on.

I have been in remission from Hodgkins disease for nine years, so the doc
wasn't concerned about that. He said the liver enzymes were slightly
elevated and the white count was slight, and he didn't seem too worried.

What's going on with me? I feel like everyone thinks I'm crazy and
a hypocondriac. Can anyone share their thoughts.
thanks.
