Gall Bladder Removal And Fatty Liver
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification.

I had emergency laparoscopic gall bladder removal 6 days ago. My ALT was 181, AST 127, AP 163, Glucose 168, and lipase 9. 1mo. Before, all were normal. They did not retest my blood. Now I have UTI & given cedifinir. Afraid it will affect liver.
LFT's: I would not worry about that particular antibiotic in this setting, but I do think it is important at some point, when ever your surgeon deems most appropriate, to recheck the liver tests to be sure that they normalize. If they do, and if your bile duct was normal in size, you should be fine. Good luck. ...Read more
I had emergency laparoscopic gall bladder removal 2 weeks ago. I am still getting discomfort on back and upper right abdomen. I am afraid of bike leak or stone. Is it normal to still feel discomfort after 2 weeks? My liver enzymes retured to normal.
Yes: If there was inflammation or infection prompting an emergency gall bladder removal, then some level of discomfort for several weeks after the procedure is normal. Bile leak would cause significant abdominal pain, and a retained stone in the bile ducts would cause more intense and cramping pain. If any fever, see your doctor immediately! ...Read more

If performed by: Experienced surgeon, risk is minimal. Assuming that you are going to have laparoscopic surgery, major complication is about 2% overall. That means 98% have no problems or minor problems if at all. Those are pretty good odds and not ask your surgeon whether he thinks out potential benefits outweigh the potential risks, he can tell you for sure. ...Read more
Usually nothing: Gallbladder is a vestigial storage organ for bile, so that enzymes can pour out in large amounts to help digest foods that animals would eat in large amounts infrequently. In humans, it does not serve a useful purpose because we eat smaller amounts more frequently than do wild animals. You can get transient painful episodes mimicking gallbladder colic after surgical removal, but it will resolve. ...Read more
Often none: Depends on why the surgery is being done. Usually surgery for gallstone problems resolves the pain & nausea.

Depends on severity: I assume that you developed biliary pancreatitis, i.e. Pancreatitis due to passage of a gallstone. Taking the gallbladder out reduces the risk of recurrent episodes of acute pancreatitis, but does not speed up resolution of the initial attack. Therefore the timing for resolution depends on the severity of the initial episode and the degree of damage. This may be weeks to months - follow with gi. ...Read more

Yes, trial it first: Alcohol absorption or metabolism is not affected by the absence of the gallbladder. The liver should be able to handle moderate amounts of alcohol. However since bile, which would have once been stored in the gallbladder and release after meals, is now constantly expelled into the GI tract, you may find that the combination with alcohol may change your bowel habits. ...Read more
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
