Could You Have A Hysterectomy And Your Gall Bladder Out In Same Surgery
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

My girlfriend had gall bladder surgery on august 27 and she is still having paing in her side what could be causing the pain?
Maybe diet: I do not know if you have gallstones or not. Avoid fried, fatty, greasy foods (fried chicken, cheese pizza, hot dogs, ice cream, etc.) may help. But if there are gallstones causing pain, then sometimes medication such as actigall (ursodiol) may dissolve gallstones over time. Sometimes though any foods can cause stomach discomfort and nausea, then surgery may be indicated. ...Read more
Days-to-Weeks: Most people are able to go home the same day as the surgery; will require narcotic pain medication for 1-2 days; may return to light duties in 5-7 days, exercise in 1-2 weeks, and full recovery in 2-3 weeks. Of course, every one is different--"results may vary"--like they say on tv. ...Read more
Sometimes: Depends on their overall health, any medical risks for surgery, why hysterectomy is being done, how long the operation may be for 2 surgical procedures, & finding two surgeons to coordinate and work together for the 2 surgical procedures. So yes it can be done in the right setting with the proper preparation. ...Read more
Still early post op: Even though it was laparoscopic, you still had major surgery. It is not unusual to still have some pain this soon after surgery. If its severe or increasing, call your surgeon.

My friend is suffering from pancreatitis frm past 5 months. He has got his gall bladder remove through surgery?
Sir I m 3o year old female. I have 13mm calculas in my gall bladder lumen. But it doesnot pain me. So is there any process except surgery?
Not necessarily: Large studies have shown that gallstones that don't cause symptoms don't require operation. Most people don't, in fact. However, once you start having symptoms due to gallstones such as pain, nausea, vomiting or jaundice, those symptoms tend to worsen over time until gallbladder removal is necessary. ...Read more
Lap chole: Gall bladder surgery is usually a very common proceedure called a laparoscopic cholecystectomy in which a surgeon places 3 - 4 tiny holes in your abdomen to remove the offending organ. It is outpatient, you go home the same day and usually return to work in 1 - 3 weeks. It has been done safely since the early 90's. I am not familiar with a gall bladder flush. ...Read more
I'm concerned about an unessary gall bladder surgery. Any suggestions about altenatives to surgery?
If you have had symptoms from your gallstones, you may want to think about having your gallbladder removed. Having a gallstone is not necessarily a reason to remove it. I am not aware of many effective nonoperative therapies for stones.
It sounds like you have had some symptoms because of them. I would think about talking to your surgeon about why the operation is necessary. ...Read more

Low fat: If gall bladder removal is indicated, very few patients are not candidates for laparoscopic or even open cholecystectomy or at least cholecystostomy (tube placed into gall bladder). If that can't be done, you should certainly eat a diet as low in fat as prossible to try to minimize the stimulation of gall bladder. ...Read more

Other reasons are large gallbladder polyps (precancerous concerns) or gallbladder cancer (far less common that stones).

Less....: After removing gallbladder, body takes time to adapt and digest the foods you consume without bile juice from gallbladder. Generally, avoid or take less red meat, pork, butter, dairy products, eggs, fruit juice but grape and apple, caffeinated, alcoholic or carbonated beverages, even tea and decaffeinated coffee. Eat smaller meals with even intervals. In time, body adapts. Ask surgeon for detail. ...Read more
Depends: With a laparoscopic approach, many surgeons will do the procedure as an outpatient or just an overnight stay. In complicated cases or an open procedure, that changes according to the situation. After a straightforward case, I usually tell people to take 3-4 days off and no strenuous activity for 2 weeks. ...Read more
Its Surgery.: There is no such thing as minor surgery if it's done on you! You should know why the surgery is advised, what happens if you do not choose to go through with it.

Your surgeon should be able to give you all this info. ...Read more

Sometimes: Spasm can occur at the entrance of common bile duct into duodenum, called sphincter of oddi dyskinesia. Prolonged spasm causes similar pain as gall bladder disease. Sometimes patients have to be scoped to make this diagnosis. Gastroenterolgist visualizes area and performs manometrics in adults. Rx available, stent, etc. In some hands hida scan can be very suggestive of this diagnosis. ...Read more
Very low risk: Gallbladder removal is one of the most common operations performed in the us and is, thankfully, very safe. Like all abdominal operations, there are risks of bleeding, infection, blood clots, pneumonia, etc. This is somewhat dependent on the health of the patient, but generally less than 1%.
