Gastrectomy); surgical removal of the gall bladder (cholecystectomy); or surgical removal of the pancreas (pancreatectomy), what's the difference?
Gall bladder and removal of stone at the junction of cystic duct and cbd via open surgery. Stone of 15mm in bile duct and bile leak after 10months?
Very rarely: There are 3 reasons why a stoma may be needed: 1-if the cancer is so close to the anus that removal would leave too little to re-connect to.

Can resection surgery at the junction of the small and large intestine cause chronic sibo? Assume the ileocecal valve was removed.
Define: I don't know what sibo is. In general, if the ileocecal valve is removed, some patients can have , at least temporarily, some looser stools or urgency.

Good luck. ...Read more
