I just had my gallbladder removed (021604) and have had pretty bad pain in my side. Was it hard for you to take a breath in? You know when you get a "catch" in your side and it hurts to breathe in, was it like that? I'm having some very weird pains on my right side, under my ribcage. When I'm laying down, I'm fine. But when standing up, I have a hard time breathing. It seems to be getting better, but at a snails pace. I've only found one other person who's had any unusual post-op pain. I know I've strained a back muscle trying to compensate. Just trying to figure out what could be wrong since my doctor isn't sure. Thanks!
