What is Gall Bladder Surgery and How Gallstones are formed?

Cholecystectomy is the medical word for gallbladder surgery. The gallbladder, a pear-shaped organ in the body, is in charge of holding bile juice (the fluid that helps us digest food). The liver produces bile, which is then kept in the gallbladder for later use. Some people's gallbladders are not always effective organs, which results in blockages of the channels via which it releases bile during digestion. Additionally, the gallbladder may acquire deposits that eventually turn into stones. Choose KIMS Hospitals for painless and convenient gallbladder surgery from a gallbladder expert in Hyderabad.

What are the side effects associated with Gallbladder issues?

What are the symptoms of gallstone disease?

There are three scenarios.

  • - Asymptomatic
  • - Dull pain in the center of the chest or towards the right upper quadrant of the abdomen, radiating to the right shoulder and back (symptomatic cholelithiasis)
  • - Severe pain with fever, vomiting and sometimes jaundice (Acute calculus cholecystitis)

Gallbladder Inflammation

Gallbladder Inflammation may result from a gallstone stuck in the gallbladder's neck (cholecystitis). Cholecystitis can result in fever and excruciating discomfort.

Common Bile Duct Obstruction

Gallstones can obstruct the ducts that carry bile from the liver or gallbladder to the small intestine. Bile duct infection, severe pain, and jaundice are possible outcomes.

Pancreatic Duct Obstruction

A gallstone may obstruct the pancreatic duct, which may result in pancreatic inflammation (pancreatitis). In most cases, pancreatitis necessitates hospitalization because it produces severe, ongoing abdominal discomfort.

Gallbladder Cancer

Gallbladder cancer is more likely to develop in those with a history of gallstones. However, even if the danger of developing cancer is higher, there is still a very little chance that you'll develop gallbladder cancer.

What options are there for treating Gallbladder problems?

Treatment Options:

  • Asymptomatic – wait and watch or some scenarios surgery
  • Symptomatic cholelithiasis – surgery

           Why do you need surgery for this group?

So to prevent these dreadful complications, the gallbladder has to get operated and removed.

  • Acute calculous cholecystitis – emergency surgery
