Brief Answer:
No known medicines work in gall stone problems

Detailed Answer:
Namaskar XXXX.

This is very true that here are no known medicines in any of the XXXXXXX ( discipline of treatment methods like Allopathy, Ayurvedic, Homeopathy ).

Gall stone is 12 mm and may become a cause of infection as this is now a foreign body.

The only sure way to get a cure is Operation. The best choice is Laparoscopic removal of the gall bladder along with the stone. This is as good as a day-care procedure, you can g home on the same or the next day, move around very early, least painful. Get the Physician's check-up to find for the fitness for anesthesia and surgery. If normal go ahead with the Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy ( removal of the gall bladder with the stone).

Sir, after removal of gall blader, will there be any consequences or ill health problems? Kindly tell me the precautions to take care of good health in future
Answered by Dr. T Chandrakant 21 minutes later
Brief Answer:
No ill-health problem

Detailed Answer:
After removal of the gall bladder there are usually no consequences or ill-health problems. It is best removed before the infection or inflammation sets in.

The precautions to be taken is to avoid oily foods and nothing else. No special diets are needed. You can have normal home-made-food. The body adjusts easily with the new system. The gall bladder has a function of storing the bile which is produced by the liver by concentrating it when the upper intestine is empty. It is contracted when the food enters this part called duodenum and is mixed with food for saponification of the fats in diet.

After Gall bladder removal this bile is going to be continuously flowing into the duodenum.

If you weigh the benefits, it will outnumber the side effects.
Of course the Doctors will take care to see that there are no attendant other medical or surgical problems. Once you are found fit, the recovery too will be smooth and fine.

Is there anything abnormal about this photo of my gallbladder?

doctor1 MD

Had laproscopic chole two weeks ago. Had to have stent liver/ pancreas . Have had several episodes of pain same as before removal, above sternal notch and shoots around in line to vertebrae in back. Almost as bad as original pain. First one that happened after surgery was six days out and put me into ER via ambulance, BP dropped 63/43. What s going on? Read articles that most people are back to work by now.

I had a laparoscopic cholecystectomy ten days ago. I am feeling great. I do, however, have a HX of Burkitt/Like Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. Have been in remission 10 years. Pathologist's report showed very thick gall bladder with 12 stones & walls lined with stones. Gallbladder was in very bad condition. At first, there was a question of possible malignancy, but another Pathologist was consulted to review case. Conclusion was BENIGN (No atypia). Should my specimen or slides be seen by an Oncologist? Do you feel that I should trust this opinion? (My cancer was misdiagnosed by a Pathologist ten years ago is why I am anxious.) I have had a normal LDH throughout this entire experience. Thank you very much.
