Bladder (Definition)

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.

See your surgeon: It depends on how long ago the surgery was. There can be some temporary muscle aches in the back early after surgery. Later pains could be from pancreas, rarely from retained bile duct stone, or other possibilities. Needs a physical exam with your doctor or your surgeon. ...Read more

Depends: Gallstones are the result of a disease process and only resolved by the removal of the gallbladder. If pain is not a symptom, there could be other vague symptoms present. Also, why wait for a severe attack and possible related complications. While surgery is not immune to complication, it is very safe. A sincere discussion with a surgeon will help you decide. ...Read more

My aunt has gall bladder stones. Is there any ways in alternative medicine to cure it without surgery? Or any foods that can cure it?

No: Gallstones can be observed if there is no discomfort or problems. Gallstones that cause pain or nausea usually are best treated with surgery to resolve the problem. Actgall is a medication that may dissolve some gallstones, but can take 2-3 years, does not work on large or calcified stones & gallstones can return if medication is stopped. ...Read more

Possibly: If you just had the surgery or recently it could be that they cut your bile duct, occluded your bile duct, or you have a leak from the liver. A ct scan will show fluid collections to determine if possible leak. You need to look at indirect bilirubin to know if it is obstruction. I would rule those out first and if negative the liver needs to be evaluated maybe biopsy, see your surgeon. ...Read more

Gall bladder stones 8mm. What are the options for me?

Gall bladder stones 8mm. What are the options for me?

Surgery or not: If the gallstones are causing symptoms, then surgery to remove your gallbladder is an option. If a gallstone blocks the bile duct, then you may also need a procedure to remove stones from the bile duct (ercp). If you're not having symptoms, then you don't need to do anything. I'd recommend seeing a general surgeon to discuss your options. ...Read more
