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

Please recommend advice for my son 26 who got gall bladder stones and does not want operation to remove it?

That's his business: This is between him and his physician. Don't try to change his mind. You'll only make him angry. If the stones make him miserable enough, he'll change his mind. And many physicians recommend leaving asymptomatic or only moderately annoying stones alone. ...Read more

Had gall bladder surgery.  Vagus nerve was damaged. Have dumping syndrome.  High acid, nausea, diarrhea, wake every day with nausea. Need diet advice.?

LOW CARBS: If you truly have dumping syndrome you should avoid large carbohydrate loads, so minimize your sugars and starches. Vagus n injury is not typically associated with gb surgery. A small percentage of gb surgery patients get urgency after meals. This is temporary, and can be shortened with anti diarrhea meds and avoidance of large meals. Ask your surgeon to clarify. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 22 year old. I had a gallstone with size of 1.2cm in gall bladder. I have mild discomforts and stabbing pain sometimes. Is surgery recommended?

I am 22 year old. I had a gallstone with size of 1.2cm in gall bladder. I have mild discomforts and stabbing pain sometimes. Is surgery recommended?

Probably yes: While there is never 100% accuracy in medicine, sounds like it would be a good idea to remove the gallbladder in order to alleviate your symptoms, especially if they are worse with eating, and the pain is in the upper abdomen. Laparoscopic approach is generally best. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I am 22 year old. I had a gallstone with size of 1.2cm in gall bladder. I have mild discomforts and stabbing pain sometimes. Is surgery recommended?

It sounds like yes: There is a large gallstone that can block the bile from getting out of the gallbladder. When that happens you feel pain and discomfort. It can get a lot worse when the gallbladder gets inflammed. It is best to have the gallbladder taken care of surgically before things get out of hand ...Read more

My mother..61 yr..Multiple gall bladder stones..Max 11 mm..Surgery recommended..But she has no pain..Is surgery must?..What precautions if don't opt it

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

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
