Side Effects Of Gallbladder Medication And Surgery?
Afternoon,rnWant to ask if people with gallstones who like to have stomach pains recur, do they have to undergo gallbladder removal surgery? Then what are the side effects for patients who have had the operation?rnPlease enlighten me. Thank you.
Gallstones are generally stones that come from cholesterol that forms in the gallbladder. Most cases of gallstones without symptoms are called asymptomatic gallstones. But sometimes gallstones can cause blockage and inflammation of the bile ducts, triggering abdominal pain. Some of the symptoms that can be caused by gallstones are:
Severe pain that occurs suddenly, especially in the upper right abdomen Nausea and vomiting Discomfort in the abdomen to the lower ribs Loss of appetite Fever The skin looks yellow Treatment of gallbladder disease can be done with drugs and surgery. Treatment with drugs is generally carried out on gallstones that do not cause symptoms and are small <1 cm. However, if the gallstone disease often causes symptoms repeatedly, the doctor will generally recommend surgery. Gallbladder surgery can be performed using 2 techniques: laparoscopic cholecystectomy ("keyhole" surgery) and laparoscopic cholecystectomy (open incision surgery).
After surgical removal of the gallbladder, you can still live a relatively normal life. However, some people experience nausea or bloating and diarrhea after consuming fatty foods. This is due to changes in body fat metabolism. It is avoidable and does not happen to all individuals. Some ways that can be done include avoiding fatty/oily foods, increasing consumption of vegetables/fruits, and eating small portions but often.
If your complaints are getting more frequent, you should consult an internal medicine specialist or surgeon for further examination and treatment.
I hope this helps,
