Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Gallstones occur from accumulation of excess cholesterol in the gallbladder. In addition to choleterol, gallstones are also composed of calcium and bilirubun. Apart from excess cholesterol in the gallbladder, other causes of gallstone formation are excessive bilirubin, and full gallbladder, so that the concentration in the gallbladder increases.
Gallstones can be identified based on the surgeon's evaluation relating to the history of patient complaints, physical examination, and supporting examinations such as ultrasound or other radiological examinations. Handling of gallstones can be done with treatment, ERCP or Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography, or with gallbladder surgery.
In connection with the gallstone case that you are experiencing, then the determination of treatment measures is ensured by the doctor who treats you. This is related to the location of gallstones, gallstone size, and complications that may occur.
In the ERCP action, it is often done on gallstones that block the bile duct, where with ERCP, stones that block the emepdu channel are expected to be removed, and then stent placement is required. If the ERCP or stent placement performed causes infectious complications in the area of the stent and recurs, then consideration of surgery can be done, especially if the gallstones are already large and cannot be helped with medication. But again, all of this must be based on the evaluation of the doctor who treats you and based on your current clinical condition, because each technique has indications and side effects.
Discuss with the doctor who treats you or your surgeon, so you get the right treatment steps for you.
