Tha nk you for providing a very detailed report , ultrasound
exams and your
complete blood work.
There is no question that you have multiple gallstones. There is no obstruction
of the bile duct , the channel that carries the bile from the gallbladder
intestine, which is good. Your liver enzyme levels are normal which means
you don't have signs of inflammation of the liver or the surrounding organs,
etc. You are very mildly anemic, but not to worry.
You mention one attack of abdominal pain
As for fatty liver
, it is very mild and with normal enzymes, again, I would
not worry. Besides, during a laparoscopic procedure, they will take a good
look at your liver and if abnormal or suspicious, they can take a biopsy.
Laparoscopic approach has made gallbladder surgery very much easier.
First, it is same day surgery. Recovery is faster. It used to be 7-10 days
in the hospital years ago with tubes in the stomch and bladder etc.
Problem with large abdominal incision, infection, wound separation etc. etc .
All that is not true now. Very rarely, for technical reasons or location of the
gallbladder, they may decide to convert to the old way with open surgery.
In experienced hands , this is very unlikely to happen.
I would recommend that you start taking some oral iron supplements
with a Super B-Coplex Vitamin daily. Along with this you can take Vit-E 800 i.u.
daily and 1000 mg. of Vit-C daily. If you are a little over weight lose a few.
I wish you well.
is much better than emergency surgery for complications.
