I had a barium enema done and it showed small diverticula (sp?) and my gallbladder normally distended, but wall is minimally thickened measuring 3mm in diameter. In addition a tiny polyp along the posterior wall measuring 3.7mm in diameter. No calculus noted. What is the prognosis and treatment?
Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.
There is no treatment required now. Gallbladder remains distended during fasting state. I presume the imaging was done during fasting state. You have not mentioned about anything obstructing causing the gallbladder to become distended. Gallbladder wall thickness more than 4 mm is considered significant. Yours is less than that. Similarly polyp size more than 10 mm is considered significant. Yours is much less than that. So at present you do not need any treatment for your gallbladder issue. I hope that answers your question. Regards, Dr.R.K
