Can Ursodeoksikolat Acid Medication Can Handle Gallstones Without Surgery?
I have a gallstone of 2cm. Is there a way to cure it besides surgery, for example using the drug ursodeoksikolat acid? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Large enough gallstones or block the flow of bile can cause very disturbing complaints, namely in the form of severe pain and nausea that feels dominant in the upper right abdomen, can also spread to other parts of the abdomen, back, and shoulders. Gallstones that are not handled properly also have the risk of causing inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis), inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), also increases the potential for the formation of gallbladder cancer.
In mild cases, where the stone size is very small and does not cause any complaints, it may be taken conservative treatment, such as by giving the drug you mentioned. However, if the stone is large enough, does not respond well to treatment, or is at high risk of causing blockages in the bile ducts, pancreas, and various complications as mentioned above, of course conservative management alone is not enough. Surgery is needed (cholecystectomy) to minimize the risk of recurrence as well as dangerous complications. With the competence and experience of the treating doctor, cholecystectomy surgery is often not a dangerous procedure, and rarely leaves serious long-term complications. So, it is better to consult directly with a doctor or digestive surgeon who treats you ...
I hope this helps.
