Gallbladder Removed But Still Getting Spasms Where It Ws
Why is it that i still have episodes of biliary colic (gall bladder attack) years after my gall bladder was removed?
The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct. The gallbladder can store bile when the bile is not needed, and can squeeze bile into the bile duct and intestine for digestion when a person eats larger ...Read more
Is it normal to still have pseudocysts even after 6mths from having serious pancreatitis from ercp, gallbladder removed 2mths ago, still having pain?
Probably not...: Its probable that your pancreatitis predated the ercp, & that the exam was performed to better characterize the disease. Ercp-associated pancreatitis seldom causes chronic pancreatitis, which sounds like what you describe. If this is indeed the case, talk to your doctor (who best knows your history & risks) about your next course of action. Please of course avoid any alcohol intake. Good luck to u. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I need my gallbladder removed but am waiting. Had another attack. Is it possible that lettuce causes the gallbladder attack?
Gallbladder: You are young to be having gallbladder attacks. It would be helpful to have blood tests and an ultrasound to assess your gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver. If you truly have gallbladder disease then there's a good reason to have it removed so you don't risk future gallbladder or bile duct infection. Lettuce isn't a common food group to cause an attack, but fatty foods commonly do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Iv had my gallbladder removed but still get pain like i did when it was still there. No scans are confirming what's causing it. Please help?
See GI Doctor: Postcholecystectomy syndrome is the persistence or return of RUQ abd pain following gallbladder removal. This is due to non-biliary causes (irritable bowel, ulcer dz, gerd, etc), organic biliary dz (common duct stones/stricture/cancer), or functional biliary disease (sphincter of oddi dysfunction). I advise GI work up to include labs, ultrasound+/-ercp, depending on above results. ...Read more

Not Usually: Typically, after a stone is removed the the stent is removed, the pain goes away almost immediately.

Surgn didn't realize that gb was gangrene, partial lapchol.
How do I know that gb remnants are not still ganrene? Have 1/2 stone in gb rem, &sevre pain
Difficult problem: A gangrenous gallbladder can create much inflammation in the liver bed and being too aggressive may result in more complications. At this point in time, drainage and antibiotic coverage with observation with possible re-exploration when things have settled down may be a better course of action. I would discuss with your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I went in for a ganglion removal but 2 weeks later found out i had carpal boss removed. Its been 4wks still very painful/limited motion is this normal?
Possibly: That's a bony procedure so it could certainly cause pain for several weeks. At this point you have probably been instructed to begin range of motion - over time, that should help, but may be painful initially. After surgery, an infection is always a possibility, so see your physician if there you have redness or drainage or fever. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The stitch on my csection is still there, it was supposed to be removed 2 weeks ago, but I can't have it removed cause can't pay my doc, is that bad?
Not bad, out better: If you have a perm suture that should come out, it's ok to leave it for awhile. However you have a higher chance of scarring, late infection (depends what suture was used), or the suture embedding into the skin. Sorry finances are keeping you from proper care, but your regular doc should be able to help you or any available clinic. Most docs will "finish" the job even if you can't pay, take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had surgery to have my gall bladder removed because I was having severe stomach aches the aches didn't leave they are now 10 times worse...Why?
Different things: It is possible that the pain was due to something else. I am sure that there was a good indication for cholecystectomy, but it may be that the cause of the pain was unrelated to your gallstones. I would have another talk with the surgeon and see if you guys coukd work together to ferret out the cause of the pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I only had 3galblader attacks in 2weeks 2months ago. I was checked, have small stones andnow i'm going to surgically remove bladder. Is that necessary?
Personal decision: Yes you can have laparoscopic surgery to remove your gallbladder ; gallstones if you want. Unless there are medical reasons that requires you to ihave surgery, such as abnormal blood liver tests or history of gallstone pancreatitis, it is your decision with your surgeon to make that decision. You are young ; have already had 3 painful attacks ; you do have risks of future gallstone attacks as well. ...Read more
