It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

I had gallbladder surgery a month n had some complication where my liver was cut, I m not itching and have dry skin?

Several possiblities: Your gallbladder is located under your liver. They share a common space that can measure up to 10 x 5 cm. It is not uncommon for bleeding in this common space or its edges. Usually your surgeon will make intra-operative maneuvers to control any bleeding before ending the operation. Okay to ask your surgeon for details of your case. If your recovery is on tract, it may be a normal variant. Read more

I had a lap. Gallbladder surgery I have 13-24 surgical clips in my liver, is it a normal thing to have in after that surgery? #nqlu in laproscopic surgeries they cannot use stiches so I have been told since, they only staple.

I had a lap. Gallbladder surgery I have 13-24 surgical clips in my liver, is it a normal thing to have in after that surgery? #nqlu in laproscopic surgeries they cannot use stiches so I have been told since, they only staple.

It: It is normal to have clips in the area below your liver known as the gallbladder fossa after a laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal). 13 or 24 clips is a lot, however. Normally, most surgeons will have 2-3 clips on what is called the cystic duct stump and on the cystic artery, making 4-6 clips normal. That being said, every patient and every case is different. It is possible that you had what is called "aberrant anatomy" such that you either had extra blood vessels that required more clips, or that you had some large venous sinuses under your liver that were bleeding during surgery and required more clips.
If you are more than a few weeks out from your surgery and are doing fine then this probably isn't anything to worry about. In most cases, the complications associated with having your gallbladder removed laparoscopically occur almost immediately after surgery and are readily apparent. There are some less common problems, such as narrowing of your bile duct or occlussion of your hepatic artery that can show up later. If these things happen, they do tend to be associated with cases that are considered more difficult. If you are concerned you should ask the surgeon who did your procedure to explain to you how your surgery went and if you should be concerned, but I suspect you have little to be worried about.

Gallbladder surgery 1 wk ago. Bilirubin is 1.4 today ALT is 100 AST 40. Can bili be high due to post removal ALT 142 and AST 77 3 weeks ago. Fatty liver?

LFTs post chole: Simple answer, is “yes! ” the data you report is trending down—resolving. It could take a few weeks for lfts to return to normal after an acute attack of cholecystitis. Bear in mind, though, that upward trends could suggest a retained stone in the common bile duct. Unless an intraoperative cholangiogram was done during the surgery, then you would want to rule-out that possibility... Read more
