Burning and constant feeling to urinate after gallstones removal surgery. Is this due to the surgery ?

Hi, my grandmother recently had gall stones removed. She had the surgery a week ago tomorrow and is still experiencing extreme amounts of pain. Additionally, she seems to be having symptoms similar to a urinary tract infection - burning and constant feeling to urinate. Is that a symptom involved with gall stones or the removal thereof? And to add more to all of it, she has been having diaherra for over 2 months. Her doctor precribed her medications for this which help when she remembers to take them, but it seems to be an ongoing issue for her - even more so after the surgery. I m worried that my grandmother may have some other issues going on that the doctors haven t found yet. Can you help shed some light on any of this? Thank you!

Hi and welcome to HCM.
This is rarely caused by gallbaldder surgery unless there was baldder or ureter injury. but it would be reported. it is more possible uroinfection which is common in people that underwent any surgical procedure since their immune system is weakened few weeks after surgery. she should treat it by taking lot of fluids and antibiotic if necessary. diarrheas may be experienced after gallbaldder surgery but it shouldnt last for more than 2-3 months. if there is no improvement she may need gastroenterologist work up to rule out some bowel disorders.
Thanks for the query. Regards
