What is the best diet for a person who had undergone cholecystectomy?

What is the best diet for a person who had undergone cholecystectomy?

Lower in fat diet: The gallbladder is a bile storage sack which pumps/squeezes bile into the intestine to help digest(emulsify) fats. After removal, you have less bile available to digest fat, but after a few months your body/liver will adjust. So, after surgery, consume less fat, but all else should be fine. In general, we eat too much--so a healthy, balanced diet, and maybe smaller portions, is advised. Good luck. ...Read more

What is the best diet for someone who has had their colon removed or an illestomy?

Anything: You can still eat much of what you like; the colons job is to remove water. So you may have to drink extra water to make of for your inability to collect it. I think everyone should be on what i call an acid-free diet. Check my website for details on that; but it is really a diabetic diet with no sodas, avoidance of toxins and supplementation. ...Read more

What diet should I follow for gall bladder disease when surgery is not an option?

What diet should I follow for gall bladder disease when surgery is not an option?

Low fat: If gall bladder removal is indicated, very few patients are not candidates for laparoscopic or even open cholecystectomy or at least cholecystostomy(tube placed into gall bladder). If that can't be done, you should certainly eat a diet as low in fat as prossible to try to minimize the stimulation of gall bladder. ...Read more

I have a family member who will be undergoing cardiac bypass surgery soon. How is the leg vessel "fixed" after a portion is removed for the surgery?

Collaterals: Often if multiple bypasses are needed, veins are harvested from the leg for use. Post operatively part of rehab is walking and may require compression hose to prevent swelling in the leg till the body replaces the removed vein with new small veins that will take over the job of returning blood to the central circulation. Walking and exercise will encourage the growth that may take multiple months. ...Read more

What is perineal rectosigmoidectomy? What is a low anterior resection with rectoplexy? Can either be done microscopicaly? Should an 86 year old woman have this done? We don't want her to go through a major surgery and be in pain for long. Her rectal prol

What is perineal rectosigmoidectomy? What is a low anterior resection with rectoplexy? Can either be done microscopicaly? Should an 86 year old woman have this done?  We don't want her to go through a major surgery and be in pain for long. Her rectal prol

Both : Both these procedures are done for rectal prolapse. The perineal rectosigmoidectomy is done from below by making an incision and removing the rectum and the last part of the colon to prevent the rectum from prolapsing (also known as the altemeier procedure) the second procedure you mention is the low anterior resection with rectopexy is done through the abdomen and the surgeon removes a part of the colon and pulls the rectum up and sutures it to the inlet of the sacrum to prevent it from prolapsing back out. For an 86 year old unless she is in great medical condition the first procedure perineal rectosigmoidectomy would be a safer procedure as it is less invasive and offers a good outcome. ...Read more
