Gallbladder removal done, has numbness in hands, fatigue. Possible cause?

Hello, its just for abit of advice really. My mum has had her gallbladder removed a month ago and was in a lot of pain and is slowly recovering. For the last couple of days she has had numbness in her hands and has been feeling fatigued, because it is easter monday, she doesn t want to go up to out of hours because she doesn t think they will have the answer and she thinks tests will probably be needed to be carried out which won t be available until tomorrow.

General Surgeon 's  Response
Gall bladder surgery has no relation to numbness of hands.
If the Intravenous cannula was kept in the hands,then it may be the cause for numbness as minor nerve injury might have occured.
Otherwise it could be just minor complaint which might have occured due to pressure effect.
Please give her B complex tablet with minerals and antioxidants.
I don't think she will be asked for tests.
Nothing to worry
Wish her good health
