Question: Hey Doc I just Gallbladder removal ( laprscopic ) a couple of hours after the surgery I felt I wouldn't say chest pain but right my chest where one of the incisions were. They wanted to take precautions and an ECG which was completely normal however, the Tripponin test was a little high normal 50 mine was a 100. Any opionin here as It's seems weird. Could it be because my body just had surgery? Thanks for your help. Aryeh

Brief Answer:
Probably the surgery

Detailed Answer:
Hi Aryeh,

It is most likely pain from one of the incisions - probably the one they extracted the gall bladder from. It sounds completely harmless, and the elevated Troponin is most likely just the surgery. To be sure, do another troponin level measurement a few hours later to see if there is any change; a 20% change up or down in the level suggests some degree of heart strain and you should then be seen by a cardiologist.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions.
