Scar tissue from gall bladder removal surgery; what can be done to get rid of it and the pain?

Why scar tissue?: Scar tissue by itself doesn't usually cause pain. Have you ruled-out other causes of the pain? Ulcers? Gastritis? Pancreatitis? A retained bile duct stone? Incisional hernia?

I have just been told I have sludge in the lumen the BCD dilated to 1.5 CM after gall bladder removal will this mean more surgery please?

I have just been told I have sludge in the lumen the BCD dilated to 1.5 CM after gall bladder removal will this mean more surgery please?

Not Necessarily: Increasing size of the Common Bile Duct is normal after having your gallbladder removed. Unless you are having recurrent symptoms, I don't think you need surgery. You may need to have an upper endoscopy to open the valve so the sludge can be drained easier from the duct. That will be up to you, your symptoms and your surgeon/endoscopist. ...Read more

Gall Bladder removal on my 24 year old wonderful daughter Post surgery, blood pressure very high muscle spasms, periods of unresponsiveness MRI clear?

Drug reaction?: May be a reaction to one if the myriad of medications, including the anesthesia that caused this, assuming it happened immediately after the operation. Ask for follow up with the anesthesiologist to get more input. If itnhappened in the operating room, it could have been related to a gas embolism, and that would resolve on its own.

Others will actually gain weight since the (fatty) foods that used to cause pain can now be tolerated. Bottom line: do not undergo surgery with the expectation to lose weight. ...Read more

There is a remote possibility of bile stone formation in the native bile duct many years later, but it is quite rare. I hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read more
