About the Surgery

It is the surgical process of removing the gallbladder. This surgery is very common and one with a low risk of complication. Hence if one does have a serious and unavoidable problem with their gallbladder, the doctor recommends a cholecystectomy.

The surgical process of cholecystectomy includes two different methods. Those are:

  • Two small incisions are made into the abdomen. One is to insert the camera so that the surgeon has visual inside the body and the other is to insert small surgical instruments. The surgeon makes 4 small cuts and then removes the gallbladder.
  • A large incision is made, exposing the gallbladder and is then removed.
The symptoms when a person has gallstones and requires surgery are:
  • High fever and a yellowish tint in one’s eyes.
  • A repetitive nauseous feeling and vomiting along with the passing of dark coloured urine and clay coloured stools.
Pre-surgery is the patient getting ready for the surgery and involves the following
  • A bowel prep is undertaken so as to remove stools from the digestive tract. This is done by the surgeon through two ways, that is either, by administering a laxative or performing an enema (cleansing the tract by injecting a liquid through the rectum).
  • The patient is instructed to fast the night before the surgery so as to keep the digestive tract clear during the surgery.
  • Along with the other preparations, the medications that the patient takes (if any) are stopped at the advice of the surgeon.
The surgical process of cholecystectomy includes two different methods. Those are:
  • Two small incisions are made into the abdomen. One is to insert the camera so that the surgeon has visual inside the body and the other is to insert small surgical instruments. The surgeon makes 4 small cuts and then removes the gallbladder.
  • A large incision is made, exposing the gallbladder and is then removed.
  • The open cholecystectomy is only done if the gallstone or if the inflammation is quite large and complicated.

1. CHOLECYSTECTOMY:
  • It usually takes a full week for a patient to recover from this surgery. However, they are allowed to go home as soon as the surgery is over and only held back if the situation is seen to complicate itself.
  • After a full recovery, the patient can continue all regular activities without having any pain.
2. OPEN CHOLECYSTECTOMY:
  • After this surgery, the patient is admitted for a few days for recovery and observation. While, with the other surgery it only takes a week for the patient to resume normal activities, here it takes close to a month and a half.
So as to make an effective recovery, the patient should follow the instruction of the doctor, which may include:
  • Painkillers are prescribed at the discretion of the surgeon.
  • Rest is a must and thus the patient is confined to the bed.
  • The bandage and stitches must be cleaned and sterilized regularly to prevent an infection.
  • Leakage of bile internally or bleeding or an infection.
  • Blood clots
  • Injury to the neighbor organs or tissue.
  • In very rare cases, the lungs do not become fully functional right after the surgery and due to the low effectiveness of the functioning of the lungs it can cause a serious condition of “Pneumonia”.

FAQs and Related Articles

After gallstone surgery, you may take anywhere from 2 weeks to 8 weeks to return to your normal life depending on the type of gallstone surgery.
Yes, Gallstones can be removed without removing Gallbladder. But International Guidelines suggest that the best way to treat the Gallstones is to remove Gallbladder and Gallstones together. Any treatment which involves removal of Gallstones without removing Gallbladder usually causes derangement in the movement of bile thus increasing the risk of recurrence of Gallstones. There is also a possibility that the anatomy might change after the surgery. Therefore, when the Gallstones recur, it will be risky and difficult for the surgeons to repeat the same surgery.
In the laparoscopic gallstone removal, Two small incisions are made into the abdomen. One is to insert the camera so that the surgeon has visual inside the body and the other is to insert small surgical instruments. The surgeon makes 4 small cuts and then removes the gallbladder.
The cost of gallstone surgery depends on the city and the hospital. It may vary from 65,000 Rupees to 1,35,000 Rupees. Kindly consult your doctor to know more about the cost of your surgery.
Gallstone surgery can take anywhere from one hour to two hours.
Gallbladder stores bile juice so once your gallbladder is removed you won't be able to store bile. Bile helps you digest fatty foods. Therefore after the gallbladder removal, you need to decrease the food with fat and increase fibre content in the food.
