Done hepaticojejunostomy, removal of gall bladder. Future complications?

Hi...I had a stricture at the lower end of CBD.My age is 26.Lap Hepaticojejunostomy was done with removal of gall bladder .What are the future complications and what care i should take? Stricture was benign.What is the probable reason for the stricture? I haven t underwent any surgery before. I underwent hepaticojejunostomy 6 months before.How many years before the problem(stricture) might have started? Will the hepaticojejunostomy reduces the effective length of intestine and thereby reduces the nutrient absorption? I currently weighs 60 Kg.My weight before surgery was 53 Kg. My height is 174 Cm.

Thanks for your query.You have undergone Hepaticojejunostomy foe benign stricture of the Common Bile Duct.and your Gall Bladder has been removed.The stricture in the Gall Bladder could be congenital .in origin It makes no difference even if 6 feet of small bowel is excised During this procedure small bowel is just opened and anstomosis is done between small bowel and Hepatic duct.Please do not worry about nutrient absorption as your bowel is intact an not excised.
