It was conventional surgery. Tongue: Red, White, Thick & Greasy. Pulse on left is wiry, right side is thready. BP: 138/88, HR: 75. Patient is able to eat, no vomiting, or fever suggesting infection post surgery. She hasn't gone to surgeon due to cost of visiting western doctor. My diagnosis is of qi & blood stagnation and possibly damp-heat in lv & gb. There is some pain relief post treatment, however within the next 4-5 hours after, pain resumes. I suggest her going back to the doctor to do a follow up after surgery to see if there are other issues. But my diagnosis is mostly in lieu of the fact that GB removed the bile builds up in the sphinter walls and after she introduced new food into her diet it started acting up again.
I'm trying to find any herbal supplements in tablet or pill form to help her pain and gb deficiency. In most part, I can prescribe herbs and make decoction for her to take but rather in her state not as convenient. Any other suggestions would be helpful! Thank you!
