The Body Feels Unwell In Sufferers Of Gallstones?
I am 50 years old. Last month I was hospitalized 4 times. 3 times I entered the disease was not found. But for the fourth time I asked on USG and it turns out there are 5 gallstones. Internal medicine doctors say that if it doesn’t hurt, there is no need for surgery. I was discharged from the hospital for about 3 weeks. During the 3 weeks at home I had a complete rest, but there were circumstances where sometimes I felt very unwell and very sluggish, then the next day I was healthy again, then I was not feeling well anymore (and so on). Sometimes I also feel my bile is very hot inside. What exactly am I sick with?

We understand your complaints and concerns. Gallstones (in medical language is called kolelitiasis) is a condition of the formation of stones in the gall bladder. Gallstones can also be found in the bile ducts (koledokolitiasis) and cause blockages in the area. Gallstones are formed from supersaturation of bile liquids that form small crystals. Over time, small crystals will grow and form gallstones that can be found in various shapes and sizes. Based on the findings of various cases of gallstones, the types of stones that are most commonly found are cholesterol stones and calcium bilirubin.
If left unchecked over time, the stone will cause inflammation of the bile wall and the onset of symptoms that are felt.
Symptoms that are often experienced by patients are pain in the abdomen in the solar plexus, or the upper right that can spread to the back of the back, fever, yellow in some parts of the body, no appetite, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, body feels bad, etc.
Related to your complaint, if you don't find any abnormalities related to complaints, the possibility that you feel can be caused by the influence of gallstones, stress, fatigue, or psychological factors. Lack of activity and exercise can also trigger a person experiencing a decrease in physical power. We agree with the doctor who is treating you that surgery has not yet been carried out on asymptomatic gallstones. Therefore try the following things that might help improve your complaint:
Eat healthy and nutritious food
Avoid foods high in fat and cholesterol
Increase the consumption of water
Light exercise regularly
Avoid stress and fatigue
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol consumption
Take additional vitamins and minerals if necessary
If the complaint is very disturbing, do not hesitate to do a consultation and examination directly to the doctor closest to you. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
