What does my endoscopy report indicate?

Posted on Fri, 3 Nov 2017 in Digestion and Bowels
Question: Hi, I am Almabrouk,,
My Gallbladder was removed in January 2016, before that an Endoscopy was preformed to remove some stones from my CBD and CHD. I had many stones in MY CBD and CHDagain in August 2017, some of them were removed in 19.08.2017 and a stent was inserted in my CBD to allow the bile to pass though, and prescribed to me Ursolvan 200mg medicine (Ursodeoxycholic Acid) for 2 months (two tablets, twice a day) . Doctor will remove the stent in 20.10.2017 (after 2 month of inserted it).
The question is what is the reason of the stones developed again in my CBD and CHD. and what is the effective cure to avoid the stones being developed again (Surgery, medicine or diet).
Please explain to me may case in details and the necessary recommended procedure I should follow.

Brief Answer:
Proper medicine and diet change is required.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query.

Have done through attachements.

Choledocholithiasis (also called bile duct stones or gallstones in the bile duct) is the presence of a gallstone in the common bile duct or hepatic duct.about 15 percent of all people with gallstones will have gallstones in the bile duct, or choledocholithiasis

After removal of gall bladder if the problem still continues possibilities are that-
1)too much cholesterol-Get your cholestrol level checked up and if they are high take stains class of drugs like Roauvastatin continuously.Increased amount of cholestrol are the most important facor for recurrent stone formation.
2)too much bilirubin- Which is not your case.

not enough bile salts-For which urodeoxycholic acid is being given to you.

Try to reduce weight.
Avoid oily fatty and fast food.

Diet recommended for you is-

Breakfast-4 egg white.
Half cup boiled kidney beans.
5 almonds

Mid day-
1tsf peanut butter

Gilled chicken Breast 120 grams
Half cup Brocalli
Half cup Green beans
Half cup kidney Beans.
5 ml olive oil.

Green salad and 1apple

100 gram low fat cheese with seasonal vegetables.

Before sleep-
300 ml double toned milk.
20 almonds.

Get you lipid profile done along with serum calcium levels.

Do yoga thrice a week.
High levels may also indicate an issue related to the bones such as rickets, Paget's disease, bone cancer, or an overactive parathyroid gland.So an wndocrinology consultation should also be taken.
Follow up with reports.

Hope i was helpful.

Hello dear,
Sorry for a bit delayed reply.
No my dear patient as such there is no medication which can directly suppress bile duct inflammation.
Only when the stones are removed inflammation would settle down itself.

0% possibility of liver cancer at present in mri your liver is perfectly normal even all your liver functions are normal.

Hepatitis can be checked by doing minor tests like HAV,HbsAg serology.

Mild inflammation secondary to obstruction caused by stones .

For exact quantity post image to a radiologist we can interpret report but experts are radiologists.

Even if they are severe they could be removed for a surgical gastroenterologist your case is a routine case and prognosis are excellent.

Is it necessary to have a permanent stent? If yes, what kind (material) of stent do you prefer?-This comes under a surgical hepatobiliary surgeon.However no stent could be removed after all stones are drained.

Your cholesterol should be less then 140mg/dl for that you should start doing cardio 30-45 minutes a day with 15 min of weight training.

1) 6 months post operatively.
2)Yes you can eat it,but sweets should be in limit.
3) definitely yes.
All the food mentioned by you are super healthy.

Drinks:-All expect water should not be taken
Strict no.
Water should be taken 8-12 glasses daily.

Fruits and veggies are all good for you you can take them boiled or grilled.Over cooking destroys their minerals and vitamins.
In case you want a proper diet schedule message me you age weight height and a full body picture(physique).

Detailed Answer:
Hi sorry for a bit delayed response,
Actually i was busy preparing a food plan for you-

From your photo it looks like your body fat content is 30% approx.
So our first aim is to bring to 18 percent fat
This would make your tummy flat and reducing fat would increase yor muscularity

So a fat loss diet is what i would suggest you-

You should maintain your total calorie intake at about 1500 cal/ day.A calorie deficit of about 400-500 per day would help you flatten your stomach fast.

Diet 1- 7 a.m
1 scoob ON whey protein
200 ml of skimmed milk

Diet 2- 9 a.m
50 gram oats
1 banana/apple/peach
5 almonds
4 egg whites

Day 11 am
3 dayes.

Lunch 2:4p pm

100 gram grilled chicken breast or tuna.
2 loafs of brown bread/brown rice
30 gram boiled potato
Use oil less non stick spray to cook.
50 gram green bell chilly
30 gram green beans
30 gram broclii
2 spoons yoghut
3 glass of water

5 p.m
Coconut water
2 egg white


Tofu 150 gram low fat
200 skimmed milk
green salad on plate
20 almonds crushded
10 raisins
1 scoob Casein protein.

apart from this you should work out for 1 hour a day for 4 days a week.
Should i give you a workout pan also.

The question is not that you can but its whether you will!

Wish you a perfect physique in 12 weeks.

Thank you for your help in scheduling the diet for me. Can I start it now however I will have endoscopy to remove the stones from my CBD and CHD? Or after removing the stones.
Would you please give me the workout plan?
Is it normal to drink coffee or tea three times a day with this schedule?
I am not fan of milk, I cannot bear it, can I substitute with something else, juice for example?

I don’t understand the timing in the schedule as follow:-
What is meant by Diet 1- 7 a.m, is it from 1 to 7 am?
What is meant by Diet 2- 9 a.m, is it from 2 to 9 am?
Day 11 am?
3 dayes.?
Can you please clarify?

I also did not understand these.
1 scoop ON whey protein
Tofu 150 gram low fat
10 raisins
1 Casein protein

Follow up answer.

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Sorry for a bit delayed reply..Ah old age strikes every one!

Yes off course you can start it before endoscopy it has no relation to endoscopy.So the sooner the better.
Gym and fitness has not link to any of the scopies so yes start it from today.

Initially i would keep you on a fat loss schedule for 2 weeks.

Monday Chest and Shoulders
Tuesday Back
Wednesday Rest
Thursday Chest and shoulders
Friday Back
Saturday Abs and cardio
Sunday Rest

Chest and shoulders exercise(can learn them on you tube or through a trainer)
Flat Bench Press 3 sets 12-15 reps
Incline Bench Press 3 set 12-15 reps

Treadmill - Running 40 mins
Elliptical-15 mins

Pullups 3 sets 12-15 reps
Lat Pull Down 3 sets 12-15 reps
Dumbbell Row 3 sets 12-15 reps

Crunches 3 sets till failure
Reverse crunches 3 sets till failure.

No coffee and tea should be taken before work out(it acts as your prework out drink).

Replace milk with casein protein supplement.

Diet 1- 7 a.m(First diet of the day at 7 a.m)

3 Dates(fruit)

On is name of whey protein-When you lift weight its always good to have some whey isolates as they help to repair your muscles easily.

If tofu is not available have low fat cottage cheese(they are food)

Casein is a slow digesting protein so you should take it at night before sleeping.Most of the muscles are repaired at night time when you are resting therefore its good if your body gets a constant protein supply over night.
