Itching after Liver Resection?

Hello everyone!  My dh had an open liver resection two weeks ago and gallbladder also removed.  Yesterday, he started having itching and redness on the palms of his hands and feet and ankles.  I googled this and nothing good really came up.  We will call the doctor in the morning because it is too late today to get a call back.  Has anyone that had a liver resection dealt with this?  I'm a little worried about this.  Thanks in advance for any input!

and talk to the service who can page someone to call you back. It can anything from an allergic reaction to a meds, something with the liver, or nothing but you need to be sure. Jaundice causes violent uncontrollable itching. Give them a call.
