Removed Gall bladder through laparoscopy, pain in left side abdomen. Is it a post-operative complication?

I am with my friend who had laparoscopic gall bladder removal 11 days ago. She has been recuperating very well until she began having pain in her upper left abdomen this afternoon. She describes as what she imagines a broken rib would feel like. She wants to take an antacid and something to relieve gas. Could this be a more serious post-operative complication?

Hi and welcome to HCM .Thanks for the query.
i dont think this is some serious postoperative complications. This is more likely simple gastritis or wound pain. suggest him to take antiacid medicines and some standard painkiller. Wounds are healing up to 4 weeks and pain should subside in that time. Wish you good health. Regards
