Gull Bladder Attack
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

Liver dx: Not mandatory but a good precaution. A diseased liver is particularly susceptible to the hemodynamic changes that accompany surgery. On the other hand, operative risk is probably not increased in the vast majority of patients with liver disease, including most of those with chronic hepatitis c, in whom liver function is preserved.

It : It is unclear whether you had diarrhea before you had your gallbladder removed and what the reason was to have your gallbladder removed (stones?). If you had it before and have it now, you will likely have to find another reason that you have diarrhea, as it was not due to your gallbladder. However, if you only developed diarrhea after the cholecystectomy, then the good news is that for most patients, it slowly gets better. The bad news is that it is usually a slow and annoying process. Chronic diarrhea, defined as three or more watery stools per day that last for a month or longer, is something up to 20 percent of all gallbladder surgery patients have to deal with. It is thought that the reason for this, is that the bile coming out of the liver constantly drains into the intestine (rather than being stored in the gallbladder between meals and squirted into the intestine after meals). Bile can be irritating and cause diarrhea. This is called post-cholecystectomy diarrhea due to bile acid malabsorption and is a well-known clinical condition, treatment consists of diet modification - some recommend the â€œbratyâ€ diet, which stands for bananas, rice, applesauce, tea/toast, yogurt. Supplementing your diet with these items, in addition to high fiber foods, may help improve your symptoms. Fiber is important because it adds bulk to your stool and may help firm it up. Pharmacologic treatment with a course of Cholestyramine in doses of 2-12 g/day was effective in a large percentage of patients. ...Read more
