Expected: ERCP although might not look like much, it is still invasive and most of the time, it includes making a cut on the inside of your intestine. In addition, whatever caused you to get the procedure may still be lingering before you get better. Give it at least 6 weeks and see how you feel then
Had gallbladder removal 2 weeks ago. Had black pigment gallstones. Prior to surgery had back pain right upper side. Yesterday and today pain is back?
Two possibilities: 1. "Ghost pain" from the AREA fwhich may have had some inflammatory reaction to your surgical procedure 2. the right upper side pain is due to some OTHER issue (s) Consult first with the surgeon who removed your Gallbladder Hope this is helpful Dr Z
Depends: Early after surgery eat light and non-fatty foods, no heavy work or heavy exercise for 2 weeks or until alright by your surgeon. Once healed there are no specific restrictions and should be able to do all normal activities and eat all normal foods.
None: Best way would be surgery with laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Large gallstones do not tend to dissolve with medications.
Gallstone: There is a medication which is used for patients at high risk for gallbladder surgery. It is only partially effective, and is usually reserved for those mentioned above. Many people have gallstones--without having any problems for years. Dr. about this at your next visit.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Anesthesiologist has many agents to control however! They will keep in normal range during surgery and recovery. The more you are in control ahead of time is better! Discuss with surgeon and anesthesia team.
Temporary RX: Dissolution rx can be effective for small, non-calcified stones. However, the medication (urso) is poorly tolerated. Moreover, the gallstones will return within a few years after stopping the medication. Therefore, surgical removal of the "gallstone factory" remains the gold standard.
With gallstone attack would my baby be in danger can surgery be safely (for baby) performed if needed?
What are the alternatives to surgery in the case of painful gallstones? When can I choose these alternatives, if they exist?
No good ones!: Once gallstones become symptomatic, meaning they cause pain, nausea and bloating, the only effective treatment is removal of the gallbladder. This will also eliminate the possibility of developing more serious complications such as infection of the gallbladder (cholecystitis), infection of the bile ducts (cholangitis), and gallstone pancreatitis. Surgery is usually a laparoscopic outpatient case.See 1 more doctor answer

Is there a natural way to pass gallstones or is best recommended to have surgery? Do these gallbladder flushes really work?
Gallstones: Once your biliary system makes gallstones it is ongoing. Passing the gallstones can be dangerous, if the stones get stuck in the duct system. I am not sure if "flushes" really work. However, avoiding fatty foods, increasing your hydration does help to control symptoms. Gallbladder removal with surgery is nearly always curative, as the stones originate in the gallbladder. Take friend to consult.
Is it necessary to undergo surgery when the discovery of a gallstone in the gallbladder. Or there is a cure and there is no need for surgery?
R u having symptoms?: The only definitive treatment of gallbladder disease is to remove the "gallstone factory". Thankfully, this can usually be removed via out-patient laparoscopic surgery. Like all operations, there are risks and it is up to you and your surgeon to decide if the benefits of this operation outweigh the risks. However, if you have stones that are "silent"--not causing symptoms--we don't recommend rx.See 1 more doctor answer
