Weight gain, cold sweats, pain in arms and back after gall bladder removal. What is going on?

I had my gallbladder removed in April of this year and my appendix removed in 1998. I have gained 35 pounds since my gallbladder removal and I am finding it difficult to lose the weight. I also have been experiencing cold sweats and pains going up and down my arms and back. I believe this is due to my weight gain . I am 38 year old female 2 children and I need to figure out what is going on with my weight gain and pains.

Hi welcme to Health care magic forum. So far my knoledge is concernd there is no possibility like this.
The weight gain could be due to over care post operatively and pain of back and arms may be due to previous
gastric pain not treated completely or may be due to sutures given intra abdominally.
I advise you to consult the surgeon who have operated. You may hdve to get MRI done besides other
routine tests for confermation.
Besides i advise you to follow some diet recomendations as avoid fatty foods oil sweets potato and
other tubers flushy fruits and juices to improve resistance. Wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for
