Cholecystectomy (Gall Stone Removal)

Gallbladder Surgery | Gall Stone Removal | Cholecystectomy
All of us lesser humans, have at one time or the other, been accused of having the gall to do something outrageous. Similar is the case in the tales we tell when it comes to gallbladder stones
Your gallbladder is the culprit behind every tummy pain
Not necessarily, though you should look out for symptoms like pain on the right of the upper abdomen, persistent pain especially after a heavy meal, pain which feels more like fullness, occurs in the back and tip of the right shoulder blade, nausea, puking, fever, and chills
Only obese people develop gallbladder complications
False! While obesity roosts gallbladder malfunction, it is spurred by unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, alcohol and smoking too
Lifestyle choices don’t matter
They absolutely do. Research has it that incidences escalated when people migrated from simple, rustic cuisine to modern high-sugar diets. Sedentary lifestyle also fanned the flames
I can’t function without a gallbladder
No! You definitely can. The liver uses it to store bile which is needed to aid digestion of fats. Secondly, bile is alkaline and protects the intestine from the food-acid
Symptoms are unique
No, there are overlaps and variations in each case and over time in individual cases too

When does your doctor recommend Cholecystectomy?
Severe pain
When symptoms like severe pain, uncontrollable inflammation and large stones that block the hepato-biliary duct are persistent and in the unlikely event that tests confirm Cholecystectomy

Pre-surgery, the doctor might recommend a specific X-ray named intraoperative cholangiography, to reveal anatomy of bile ducts

Swelling or infection
Cholecystectomy is recommended if there are gallstones (cholelithiasis), is swelling or infection (cholecystitis), or is cancer
Alternative therapies haven’t worked
When the doctor has tried out everything – oral medication, alternative therapies and made a battery of tests and umpteen second opinions later

There are 2 (two) types of Cholecystectomy – Open and Laparoscopic. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is commoner as it is less invasive and results in very tiny incisions
