Why am i getting the skin discoloration after 2 months of my gallbladder removal?

I had a Gallbladder removal almost 2 months ago. I also had a ct scan done, about a month ago, to check if there are any problems with my liver , and also full blood test, to check for any jaundice . Both came out negative, and doctor said that i m fine. But now, 2 weeks later, i discover that my skin colour is changing, to a lighter colour, no yellow eyes, no fever. Is this normal, and why is my skin colour changing. Everyday i look in the mirror, to see if my skin looks yellow. How do i know for sure when i have jaundice? Very concerned.

please check on your hemoglobin level.Inadequate diet may lead to anaemia giving rise to change in colour of skin known as pallor.
with jaundice urine usually be persistently yellow in colour and conjunctiva will be yellwish.
it will be better you discuss it with your doctor and be tension free.

Hello
There is no discoloration of skin after gall bladder removal.
It may just be a coincidental perception by you.
You will have deranged liver function tests if you have jaundice.
Since your liver tests are normal as just mentioned by you,you don't have any jaundice.
More over you will have symptoms like nausea,loss of appetite,weakness,yellow urine if a person suffers from jaundice.
Don't worry and relax as you don't have any jaundice.
Thanks
