hello dear
since you are telling you have underwent gallbladder surgery for 12 hours, you must had a very bad gallbladder disease. it might have adherrent to the surrounding area. if there are bile salts in the blood after surgery itching may be related to it. get the SERUM BILIRUBIN levels, if it is high consult your surgeon, other wise you are adviced to consult dermatologist. hope this advice is helpful to you
take care
