Surgical Removal Of The Gallbladder?
Good afternoon .. my wife has a gallstone 1.41cm and d suggest to the surgery to lift the gallbladder because of the gallstones a ad inpectionSy don’t understand can you please explain
Thank you for the question.
The presence of stones (cholelithiasis) and infection (cholecystitis) in the gallbladder can cause sufferers to experience very disturbing clinical symptoms, such as abdominal pain that radiates to the chest and back, nausea, vomiting, yellow, weakness, excessive sweating, fever, chills, colored urine concentrated, pale stools, yellowing eyes and skin, diarrhea, fatigue, and so on. This condition is indeed more susceptible to women, especially those who have reached the age of 40 years or more. The habit of consuming foods that contain lots of fat, low in fiber, being overweight, accustomed to living lightly, consuming certain drugs (such as hormonal drugs containing estrogen), and having a family history of liver or gallbladder disorders can further increase your wife's risk of developing stones and gallbladder infections.
Definitive treatment is needed in patients with stones and gallbladder infections. It is feared, if not handled properly, this condition can increase the risk of blockage or infection in the bile ducts, it can even stimulate gallbladder cancer. The treatment available for this condition so far can be done by administering drugs to surgery (removing the entire gallbladder, cholecystectomy). The selection of the best type of treatment should ideally be discussed directly with the doctor, internal medicine specialist, or surgeon who is examining, because this should be considered by assessing the clinical symptoms that appear, the size of the stone, complications that arise, and the general health condition of the participants. But with surgery, the risk of disease to recur can be greatly reduced, so that patients are expected to return to their activities well without significant obstacles.
Hope this helps ...
