Suffering with pinched nerve, got swelling in lips, lumps on face, swelling, hands and feet pain post gall bladder removal. Cause?

About a month ago I had my gallbladder removed. Weeks later I started to have symptoms including: swelling of the lips , lumps in my face, and swelling,itching,redness and pain in my feet and hands. I was taking 700 mg hydrocortizones. The doctor took me off of the medication but I am still having the symptoms. I also have a pinched nerve and I am wondering could that be the problem.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
Iam not sure that it can be related to pinched nerve or cholecystectomy. it is more likely some allergic reaction or venous compression which is vommonly seen in thoracic outlet syndrome.You should do neck ct or mri to evaluate this andcontinue with corticosteroids if necessary. Wish you good health. Regards
