Have abdominal pain with dark yellow urine. Had gallbladder surgery. Treatment?

I had gallbladder surgery 2 weeks ago and i ve continued to have severe abdominal pain , both times ending up in the ER. They take my blood and things seem fine, give me IV pain med and send me home. My surgeon has not returned my phone calls and I see him this Tuesday. I m completely frusterated and want to get this pain managed and NOT take a 4th trip to the ER. The last couple of days i ve noticed my urine is very dark yellow. I ve been drinking water by the gallon as i m also breastfeeding my 8 week old. Why isn t anyone concerned? I m so tired of the pain, it s so depressing.

Hi Jenperna.
Pain associated with dark urine can be serious complication. It can be caused by bile duct obstruction which isnt very rare after such procedures. Your blood tests should show raised bilirubin level if i am right, but I think that repeated lab and ultrasound is at least what needs to be done.
Second cause can be abscessus formation or intraabdominal colelction. Especially if you have fever and feel fatigue.
Just go to ER if you feel that it is neccessary. If i were your doctor I would do CT scan and complete lab tests to reule this out. Wish you good health.
